Kelsey Merritt's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit photos are now out and the Filipino-American model is beyond grateful to be given the opportunity to be part of the magazine issue. 

She posted, "@si_swimsuit 2019 issue is out now!!!  😍 So thankful to @mj_day for giving me the opportunity to be in this issue. Grateful that I get to be a part of a family that believes in body positivity and embraces diversity in race, culture, age and body size. So proud to call #SISwim my family! " 

 

It was early this year when she announced that she will be one of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit rookie this year. "I’ve been keeping this a secret for a while, and now I’m so excited I get to finally share with you all that I’m the newest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2019 Rookie!!! Ahhh thank you @si_swimsuit @mj_day for the opportunity to shoot for this iconic issue!!!," she posted last February.
