Kelsey Merritt has been teasing behind-the-scenes looks of her shoot for Sports Illustrated magazine on her Instagram for a while now. And now, those photos are finally out!
“Grateful that I get to be a part of a family that believes in body positivity and embraces diversity in race, culture, age and body size,” the Victoria Secret supermodel wrote on her Instagram caption. “So proud to call #SISwim my family!”
She first announced her magazine feature on Twitter back in February where she gushed over being chosen to be part of this year’s Swimsuit Rookie class. According to the magazine, her advocacy of inspiring women to be confident in their own skin is one of the many reasons to love her.
Merritt also expressed her gratitude to SI Swimsuit editor MJ Day for the amazing opportunity.
