Brooklyn Decker Lands Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover

The coveted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover has gone to the lucky Brooklyn Decker! The cover was revealed this morning, featurig Decker sizzling in a barely-there yellow bikini, submerged in water.

22-year old Brooklyn, and wife to tennis champ Andy Roddick, first appeared in SI five years ago, but this is her first time on the cover! "It's shocking and a dream come true!" she told People.

She seems a littler nervous about all the upcoming tv and radio interviews coming up the next few days. "I've never been on one! I'm kind of freaking out," she said before appearing on David Letterman Monday. "I've done news shows, but I've never done a big talk show."

Brooklyn says her family is overjoyed by her accomplishment. “My mom cried,” she said. "We're all on pins and needles before the issue comes out, because the cover is something all the girls want so badly," says Decker. "So it's nice for my family because they don't have to stress about it anymore."

And, Brooklyn adds, she’s sure her husband Andy will be holding his head high for the next few days. “He's so proud. I think this gives him a one-up in the locker room for the next year or so,” she says.
