Hunter McGrady is filled with gratitude after her "life-changing" Sports Illustrated shoot.
The 27-year-old plus-size model is featured in the magazine's annual Swimsuit Issue, and she took to Instagram to share her joy at landing the coveted gig.
“I have been so excited for this shoot to be released,” she wrote alongside a snap from the magazine, which sees her rocking a striped bikini while posing in the sea.
“This trip was life changing and was so special to experience with the most special team. Sports Illustrated has given me so much and created so many incredible opportunities for me and I will forever be grateful. Every time the magazine comes out it is a ‘pinch me’ moment," Hunter added, before heaping praise on the editor of the Swimsuit Issue, MJ Day.
"Thank you @mj_day for consistently being a catalyst in the way our industry is changing. Thank you to the entire team for always making me feel my best on set, and always rooting for me in every endeavour.”
This is the fourth time the model has appeared in the annual magazine, and she sweetly recalled the "magical" photo shoot which took place in Bali, Indonesia.
“One of my favorite shots from this shoot. Magical place, magical team, magical time,” she captioned another shot, featuring her wearing a black cut-out swimsuit.
