Who knew there was such a thing as 'modeling retirement'? Well there is, and super model Tyra Banks was in it - until now. For the third time the bombshell has graced the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition.

Tyra Banks was the first African American woman to pose alone on the cover in 1997. Her first cover photo ever was in 1996 with fellow model Valeria Mazza. As you can see Tyra still looks amazing. You can check out Tyra revealing the cover on Good Morning America in the video below.

There will be three separate issues for 2019. The two other covers feature U.S. National Women’s Soccer team member Alex Morgan and model Camille Kostek.

Do you purchase these special edition issues, or does seeing a picture(s) on line suffice?
