Kate Upton appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night, and with her appearance came the news that she will be featured on the 2017 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover for the third time.

The covers were also revealed, and (fittingly) there are three of them. Here are (fittingly) three clips of Upton’s appearance and the covers being revealed:

Upton, 24, later shared the three covers side-by-side on Instagram, with a caption saying how honored she is to “be part of an issue that features and celebrates beauty and confidence in every shape and size”:

Quite a big start to 2017 for Upton, and she’s also set to marry Detroit Tigers star pitcher Justin Verlander (though the date has not been made public). She seems quite excited about the wedding:

This is @justinverlander and me planning our #wedding #fun
