Kate Upton visited "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Tuesday and revealed she would be gracing the cover of the 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. It's the supermodel's third time covering the coveted issue as well as her first time since 2013.

SI's Swimsuit Issue—which hits newsstands Wednesday—comes in three variants, each of which features a bikini-clad Kate. Check them out (below).

As Jimmy pointed out in the interview, Kate is fast approaching the record for most Sports Illustrated Swimsuit covers. She trails Elle Macpherson, who has done it five times. Sports Illustrated's 2016 Swimsuit Issue had three different cover girls: Ashley Graham, Ronda Rousey, and Hailey Clauson.
