Megan Thee Stallion is the first rapper in history to grace the cover of the annual “Sports Illustrated” Swimsuit Issue.

But that’s not all – tennis ace Naomi Osaka has also made history as the first Black female athlete on her own, separate cover… and so has Leyna Bloom – the first trans actress/model, who’s got her own cover as well!

Stallion celebrated on Instagram sharing a pic of the cover and thanking all the “strong women in [her] life who inspired [her] to love [her] body and live [her] best hot girl life” and called the experience a “DREAM COME TRUE!”
