Tyra Banks has admitted she is “30 pounds heavier” than her Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover.

The 46-year-old supermodel came out of retirement to make history as the oldest model on the Swimsuit Issue cover in 2019, but she has since indulged with her meals and compares dishes from various restaurants with her family.

In a video clip with Harper’s Bazaar, she said: “I have a very interesting relationship with food. I have to say that it is one of the most important things in my life.
