Sports Illustrated has revealed Danielle Herrington as the cover model for its 2018 swimsuit issue.

The 24-year-old Compton, California native becomes just the third black woman to get the cover in the issue's 54-year history. The other two were Tyra Banks in 1997 and Beyonce in 2005. Banks actually delivered the news to Herrington, which can be seen in a video that SI shared on Instagram. 

Herrington says, "I can't even believe I'm saying this. I am the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model. I can't wait for everyone to see it. I'm emotional, but I just want to say thank you to everyone who believed in me. I put in so much work for this, and I'm feeling very accomplished, happy and excited."
