Brooklyn Decker Is The New Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Cover Model, If Anybody’s Interested (PHOTOS)

Step aside, Bar Refaeli, the torch has been passed!

Brooklyn Decker has earned the coveted cover spot for this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, for reasons that should be obvious to anyone with a pair of eyes.

In addition to being ridiculously hot and knowing how to model a bikini in the best possible way—with the top removed and casually draped over her shoulder—Decker is the wife of tennis champ Andy Roddick, making this the first Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover to be remotely related to sports in any way. Good job, SI!

Let’s all congratulate Brooklyn on her stunning achievement by clicking through the photo gallery, shall we?
