Everyone's favorite Brazillian beauty is back! That's right, Anne de Paula is now officially a three-time Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model.

Anne was the winner of our 2017 SI Swimsuit model search, which earned her a spot in the 2018 rookie class. And she's been a part of the family ever since!

"It’s something I really wanted when I started modeling," she said in an interview with "It’s amazing to finally say I’m able to be an SI model. When I started modeling, I would show people SI photos that I wanted to recreate on the beach in Rio. I wasn’t expecting it all."

Although Anne started modeling at just the age 13, she never dreamed that any of this would happen.

"I really wanted to be a doctor because all of my family works with health," she continued. "I was a tomboy … I used to play soccer on the team of my city. I used to be a goalkeeper and that was my number one thing."

We for one are so glad Anne chose to pursue modeling...although it would've been fun to watch her on the pitch, too!
