From Sports Illustrated:
Emily Ratajkowski (the ‘j’ is silent) | 22 | Encinitas, Calif.
I was born in London and we moved back to the States when I was four or five. Both my parents are hippies, intellectuals—my mom’s an English professor [at UCLA] and my dad’s a painter—and they had me when they were older, so they just decided, this baby’s going to come with us wherever we go. They took me along for the ride, and to Europe a lot. It was great.
Sports Illustrated is the identities of the 12 rookies every day at 2 p.m. ET if you’re interested.
