Derek Jeter’s girlfriend Hannah Davis gets Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover
The 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover was revealed on Wednesday night, and it was Hannah Davis who got the nod.
As many of you know, Davis has been dating former New York Yankees superstar Derek Jeter for quite some time. Davis, 24, said she didn’t think she had a shot at being on the cover because her photoshoot was done on a farm and not a beach.
“I told my mom there was no way I’d get the cover,” an emotional Davis said after SI Now surprised her with the announcement. “I told her, ‘They do beaches for covers and I’m on a farm. There’s no way. It’s not possible.'”
SI assistant managing editor MJ Day said the setting plays no part in selecting a cover photo.
“There’s no person, there’s no place,” Day explained. “The best photo wins. Period.”
The decision was made public during a pretty funny appearance Davis made on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon Wednesday night.
It’s hard to beat the trio of ladies that appeared on last year’s SI Swimsuit cover, but Davis is certainly deserving of the honor.
Davis racked up some screen time with Jeter’s family during the future Hall of Famer’s farewell tour last season, so you know their relationship must be pretty serious. There have even been rumors about Jeter and Davis having a secret wedding, though they have not said much publicly.
