Photos: Kate Upton's 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Shoot

Kate Upton at the Met Gala.

Kate Upton, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, is back. She's in the issue, which recently hit newsstands, once again.

The 25-year-old model has been in the issue since 2011. She's been on several covers, and while she's not on the cover this year, she's still featured pretty heavily.

Upton had an extremely viral moment during this year's shoot. She was knocked off a rock while posing topless by a rough wave.

“It didn’t look that large from my point of view, but it must have hit the rock just right,” she said of the wave.

“I felt like I was laughing in the face of death,” she added. “Looking back, that probably should have been a moment when we photoshopped me on there.”

Upton has been sharing a bunch of photos from her shoot on Instagram. You can view them below.
