The 2014 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover (featuring Nina AgdalLily Aldridge, and Chrissy Teigen) has been making some waves on the Internet since its release (for instance: Does it mean that butts are the new boobs in white America?), but for those who are just sad that Upton didn't continue her two-year reign as SI swimsuit issue cover girl—worry not! Upton's got her own cover for the third year in a row after all. SI just released a second cover for the issue—the first time in the swimsuit issue's 50 year history that the issue has had two covers—this one featuring just Upton. The cover is printed on the flip side of the issue.

This is Upton's third swimsuit issue cover: Previous models who have graced the swimsuit issue cover that many times include Elle Macpherson (1986-88, 1994, and 2006), Cheryl Tiegs (1970, 1975, and 1983), Christie Brinkley (1979-81), Kathy Ireland (1989, 1992, and 1994), and Daniela Pestova (1995, 2000, and 2006).

Head over to Sports Illustrated to check out more images from the shoot, as well as Upton's "Zero Gravity" shoot, which literally involves her floating around in, per the title, zero gravity. That's what the space program is for, right?
