the essentials in brief

  • For the first time, a model with a caesarean section scar can be seen on the “Sports Illustrated” cover.
  • Kelly Hughes poses in a bikini for swimwear magazine.

Many models struggle with their bodies after giving birth. So did Kelly Hughes. It honors the 42-year-old all the more when she is shown on the “Sports Illustrated” cover.

Being on the front page of the magazine means a lot in the industry. Model icon Heidi Klum once adorned the magazine for swimwear. However, a lot has changed since the first version in 1964.

But for the first time in the history of “Sports Illustrated” a model is now shown with a clearly recognizable caesarean scar. The pictures will appear on May 19th.

Hughes already gives an insight on her Instagram profile. In the caption, she mentions how grateful she is: “I’m speechless. I’m so honored to be the first woman to reveal her cesarean scar in magazine history!”
