The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition has become a highly anticipated publication every year and there is always a rush to land the coveted issue and see who is on the cover. This year, for the second-straight swimsuit issue, 20-year-old Kate Upton will grace the cover of the issue.

Sports Illustrated will unveil the new episode on “Late Night with David Letterman” one day before it’s scheduled release.

Upton becomes the first Sports Illustrated swimsuit model to be on the cover in consecutive years since Tyra Banks accomplished the feat in back-to-back years in 1996 and 1997.

This year’s cover was leaked early on Friday morning and Sports Illustrated confirmed the leaked image when they released a high resolution image of the cover later in the afternoon. For those who are looking to get an early look at Kate Upton’s latest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover, we have got it just for you.

Here is the cover for the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition:

The magazine will be available February 12, so mark that date down on your calendar.
