While the big news to hit the internet today was that everyone’s favorite 19-year-old model, Kate Upton will be on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s annual Swimsuit Issue, there was other, sports-related news as well. Apparently Alex Morgan, the young, rising star of the U.S. Women’s soccer team, has posed in the 2012 issue in just body paint.
The first image of Morgan’s shoot to go public is after the jump.
Welcome to the world Ms. Morgan!
Apparently she took a cue from her U.S. national team buddy Hope Solo and just decided to toss her body out there for the world to see. Here at Rumors and Rants, we welcome that kind of dedication to your fans.
That said, don’t be expecting to see a Rumors and Rants Swimsuit or Body Paint Issue any time soon. That’s for your benefit as well as ours.
Here’s a picture of Ms. Morgan during the preparation phase of the process.
So yes, we welcome Alex Morgan’s foray into modeling. She’s young, incredibly talented, attractive and actually seems cool. We enjoy those traits in famous women.
UPDATE: And here are the rest of Morgan’s body paint pictures.
