Alex Morgan. Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. In body paint. LIKE A BOSS!
Our favorite U.S. women’s soccer star will be included in the edition that drops this Tuesday, February 14. Sounds like the perfect Valentine’s Day Gift to me!
Ever the fearless competitor on the field, Morgan told SI she was a little uneasy about posing in her birthday suit:
“Initially I was a little nervous, but this opportunity doesn’t come everyday. I wanted to involve my family with my decision and it helped that they were very supportive. After the initial reaction of nerves, I was so excited to start shooting, and honored to be included with such an amazing group of athletes and models.”
She’s so thoughtful (hot). I’m stoked. I feel like this.
The full Alex Morgan paint job is after the jump. UPDATE: We’ve got Alex’s full pictorial right here!
