Kate Upton is stirring up the rumor mill again and this time we really hope it’s true!

The 19-year-old model with curves for days is rumored to be on the cover of this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue – a huge honor for any model.

However, the NY Post is predicting that top model Bar Refaeli will be covering the eye candy magazine!

Kate Upton gave us a possible preview of what’s to come as she strut down the catwalk at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week wearing Beach Bunny swimwear.

Kate recently told Page Six, “All I can really say is that I’m in the issue.” She then revealed she’ll be missing out on other New York Fashion Week shows because she’ll be promoting every man’s favorite issue of the sports-centric mag. 

Hmmm … sounds like she’s the cover girl to us!

Also in the running for the cover is Chrissy Teigen, fiancé of singer John Legend, and Adam Levine’s girlfriend model Anne V.

The cover will be unveiled February 13th on The Late Show with David Letterman and previous honorees have included Tyra Banks, Marisa Miller and Miranda Kerr. 

It looks like it will be a battle of the best!

As we await the big reveal, take a look at Kate wearing a series of insanely sexy swimsuits on the runway – she even sports a bridal-themed ensemble a la ’80s Madonna!
