Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, February 18) — Filipino-American Victoria's Secret model Kelsey Merritt added another prestigious title to her name. She was revealed as the newest member of American magazine 'Sports Illustrated Swimsuit' 2019 Rookie.


Merritt was photographed by LA photographer Laretta Houston for her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit spread. In the photos shared on her official page on Monday, she stunned in blush and tan swimsuits while basking under the sun of Exhuma in the Bahamas.

"@kelseymerritt may be an #SISwim rookie, but her SNEAK PEEK from @larettahouston shows she's already a STAR," the magazine wrote on its official Instagram page.


Her fellow Victoria's Secret model Winnie Harlow was also named a rookie.

In the previous years, Sports Illustrated rookies competed for the coveted title of Rookie of the Year. The spread will be out in May.
