Model and singer Yumi Nu celebrates her SI swimsuit cover on Instagram
Talk about a star turn. Earlier Monday, model/musician Yumi Nu joined Kim Kardashian, Ciara and Maye Musk on all four covers of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit’s 2022 issue. Nu, which is releasing a new album this month, had to celebrate with an announcement on Instagram.
“I haven’t been able to sleep, breathe or think properly since I found out,” Nu wrote. “I never dreamed of this because I didn’t know I could.”
Fans flocked to the comments section, while swimsuit model SI Hunter McGrady dropped by to leave warm wishes.
“ICONIC,” McGrady wrote in all caps. “I love you so proud of you.”
SI Swimsuit editor MJ Day said how truly remarkable it was to feature such a talented group of women on the cover.
“The journey we’ve been on — to break out of the mold the world has put us in — may seem familiar,” Day says. “He is certainly familiar to the women we have chosen to be our cover models: Maye, Ciara, Yumi, Kim. So in this issue, we encourage readers to see these role models as we see them: multifaceted, multitalented and sexy while they’re at it. »
Nu ended her Instagram post by saying, “It’s going to be a fun week ahead of you!”
