Sports Illustrated reveals Danielle Herrington as swimsuit edition cover model

Sports Illustrated revealed its next swimsuit edition cover model, marking her only the third African American woman to ever receive the honor.

Danielle Herrington, 24, will grace the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover for 2018.

Sports Illustrated tweeted a video of Tyra Banks, the first African American woman to ever appear on the cover in 1996 and again in 1997, breaking the news to Herrinton.

Herrington and Banks were both overjoyed, especially aware of the rare historical context. Beyonce is the only other African American woman to be on the cover. Herrington then gets even more emotional while sharing the news with her mom.

Herrington was a rookie in the magazine just one year ago.

Sports Illustrated launched its annual swimsuit issue in 1964.
