In fact, Chrissy "cried like a baby" when she saw the reveal, hubby John Legend said Friday on Good Morning America. "She was so excited, and it was a surprise because you never know who's going to be on the cover. These are all beautiful women."
"She's been in the issue for several years now, and every year it's been someone else," said John. "And this year it's her. We're very excited about it."
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH #SISWIM50? christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) February 14, 2014
As they should be! Naturally, Chrissy shared her excitement on Twitter, writing, "I mean what else is there to say. I just cannot believe it. What an honor. Never, ever, ever have felt this kind of pure joy. Crazy crazy."
Lily expressed her happiness about the cover too, tweeting, "Feeling so blessed to be on this iconic @si_swimsuit Sports illustrated cover with these beauties."
Nina was in disbelief of the ladies' cover, tweeting Friday, "I just woke up. Its real. Wow."
Clearly, all three ladies are honored and excited! But if they had to say who this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover really belonged to, who would it be? "All of us," Lily told Sports Illustrated's Swim Daily blog.
But Chrissy saw things differently, explaining, "If I were to pick . . . I would have to say our butts won it."
Can't argue there!
