Danielle Herrington: Who is the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover Girl?

Danielle Herrington has reached what many consider to be the pinnacle of the modeling business:

She has been named the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover girl.

And it’s pretty easy to see why…

Herrington is only the third African-American woman to grace the front of the legendary issue, something she touched on in a statement released shortly after the above photo went public.

“Two of my role models are Tyra Banks and Beyonce, so the fact that I get to join this incredible group of women as I become the third black model on the cover of SI Swimsuit is a dream come true,” Herrington says, adding:

“I am so excited to be part of this iconic brand that has long given identity and voice to women of all shapes, colors and beliefs.

“I hope that young girls who look at this cover are inspired to dream as big as I did and work hard to attain all their goals.”

Harrington posed for this issue for the very first time just a year ago.

She went from being a 2017 rookie to the star of the 2018 edition.

And she said previously that this was the path she always dreamed about, she just didn’t know if it was realistic.

In a 2017 interview with Fox News, Herrington talked about how she aspired to be just like Banks, who appears on probably the most iconic cover in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit history.

“I just remember Tyra Banks being on the cover and that’s where it all started for me,” Danielle said.

“That’s what really made me pursue modeling. SI was a goal from that point, from seeing Tyra on the cover. It was love at first sight… everything happened naturally.”

What else is worth noting about Danielle Herrington?

She’s 24 years old.

She grew up in Compton, California.

She majored in Psychology and would have been a child psychiatrist if she had not become a model.

Sports Illustrated is the first magazine she has EVER posed for.

“I am beyond speechless,” she wrote on Instagram after this cover was revealed.

She added:

“I dedicate this to all the young girls out there. Work hard, surround yourself with good people who believe in you and YOUR DREAMS WILL COME TRUE.”

For this cover shot, Herrington was shot by photographer Ben Watts in Harbour Island, Bahamas.

“Last year, Danielle was a rookie, and yet already an exemplary model,” said SI Swimsuit Editor MJ Day, gushing in more detail:

“She’s an extra hard worker and a natural brand ambassador. All those things separately don’t guarantee a cover, though. Danielle was a shy girl, who went from taking her first photos last year to showing up this year a completely different person.

“All the good things about her seemed to be magnified.

“She owned every single second of her shoot. She had an enthusiasm and effervescence about her – I felt like I was meeting her for the first time.

“Last year she showed up never expecting to be there; this year she showed up completely claiming her place and status as a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model.”

Demi Lovato Shares Swimsuit Pic, Addresses Eating Disorder

When it comes to showing off her cleavage, it’s clear Demi Lovato has no issue.

Seriously, no… issue… at… all.

But the artist makes it clear in a new Instagram caption that she does sometimes feel self-conscious about a different body part.

On Thursday, the 25-year-old singer opened up about the ongoing challenges of recovering from an eating disorder, along with the constant feelings of doubt she often has about her appearance.

But which she is trying her hardest to overcome.

Along with the following picture, Lovato wrote this caption:

“So, I’m insecure about my legs in this picture but I’m posting it because I look so happy and this year I’ve decided I’m letting go of my perfectionism and embracing freedom from self criticism.”

Lovato, of course, has long been very candid about her past struggle with a drug addiction and also with anorexia.

She’s come a long way.

But her battle will never really be over.

Continued Lovato in her latest inspiring message:

“Learning to love my body the way it is is challenging but life changing.

“Giving up my eating disorder has been the most challenging journey of my life but I work every day towards solid recovery even if I mess up sometimes.”

In conclusion:

“Today I’m feeling strong. You all can do it too. It IS possible. Thank you God for this new chapter in my life. #EDrecovery #happyAF.”

We’ve long admired Demi not just for overcoming her own demons, but for speaking out so often about them in an attempt to help others as well.

In October, for instance, Lovato shared a couple before-and-after photos that made it apparent just how well she is doing these days.

The singer also admits to having bipolar disorder, but she doesn’t want to be defined by it.

She said the following three months ago in the documentary Simply Complicated, discussing her eating disorder:

“I don’t want to give it the power that it controls my every thought but it’s something that I’m constantly thinking about.

“Body image, what I wish I could be eating, what I wish I could be eating next, what I wish I didn’t eat, you know it’s just constant.

“I get envious towards people who don’t struggle with an eating disorder because I think my life would be so much easier.”

We continue to wish Lovato the best.
