The third time鈥檚 the charm for model Kate Upton. She鈥檚 Sports Illustrated鈥檚 Swimsuit issue鈥檚 cover girl again! And she鈥檚 on not one but three covers for the March issue. Kate showed off her 2017 cover 鈥 or rather, covers 鈥 on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night.

Last night on the Valentine鈥檚 Day episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the 24-year-old model revealed she鈥檚 wearing, well, not much. 鈥淚s that really a swimsuit you鈥檙e wearing?鈥 Jimmy asked. 鈥淏ecause it looks like a hammock that got torn to bits.鈥 To be fair, on one of the covers, Kate is wearing a white rope sitch that does look a bit like a hammock. On the other covers, she鈥檚 topless, wearing gold chains and collars, as well as white bikini bottoms with a blue sequin, metallic-y looking top.

鈥淪he鈥檚 back where she belongs鈥 on the cover of SI Swimsuit,鈥 the magazine wrote on its website, announcing the cover. 鈥淚t鈥檚 a full-circle moment for us,鈥SI Swimsuit editor MJ Day said. 鈥淲e started Kate in her career and, you know, we watched her grow and become not only this worldwide superstar phenomenon; she changed the direction of the modeling industry.鈥

Kate first appeared in the magazine in 2011, when she was named Rookie of the Year. She earned the cover back-to-back years in 2012 and 2013. As a three-time cover model, she joins the ranks of Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum and Christie Brinkley (who appears in this year鈥檚 issue alongside her two daughters as well) who have all graced the cover three times in their long careers. The record holder, however, is still Elle Macpherson who has been on the cover five times.

鈥淚 was very excited when MJ asked me to be back in the issue,鈥 Kate said. 鈥淓specially when this year鈥檚 theme is about every woman of every age and every body type being accepted. It was inspiring to be asked to be part of that issue.鈥

The issue hits newsstands today.
