Brooklyn Decker is smokin’ hot on the cover of the 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.
The sizzling cover was first revealed Feb. 8 on the Late Show with David Letterman. Decker, 22, is ecstatic about landing the coveted SI cover.
“I burst into tears like a child,” she said Feb. 6 on the Today show. “It’s really exciting. It’s just now hitting me, so I am really happy.”
Decker’s husband, 27-year-old tennis star Andy Roddick, was also thrilled. He tweeted: “So happy/proud of my wife… the new cover for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue!!! Unreal… so excited!!!!!”
The 5’9″ blue-eyed blonde says being fit and healthy is a top priority.
“Mind/body wellness is incredibly important to me,” Decker told Elle. “Not only is my career based on it, but it really is important in my day-to-day life.”
VARYING WORKOUTS —> BIG RESULTS
Brooklyn, who recently released a workout DVD series, says varying her workout keeps her fit and toned.
While she’s not obsessive about exercise, Decker regularly does yoga, cardio workouts and calisthenics.
“I always knew that variation was key in getting the results that you wanted,” says Brooklyn. “I got to see my body transform before my eyes and THAT was what made all of my hard work worth it.”

As for diet, Decker enjoys eating healthy foods. “My number one favorite superfood is blueberries,” she gushes. “Oh my goodness, I could eat those things every single day if I had to. They are so delicious and full of antioxidants.”
BROOKLYN’S DIET IS CLEAN AND LEAN
Another favorite food is eggs. “Eggs are such a power food and don’t have to be boring,” she says.
She adds: “Oh, and I can’t forget coffee. I was thrilled to hear that coffee was a superfood (although, I think I abuse it and drink way over my recommended daily limit, but I figure I am allowed one vice).”
Decker says sweets are her weakness. “I crave [candy] like a 12 year old,” she says.
She adds: “Sour Patch Kids, Swedish Fish, that stuff makes my mouth water. I could live without pizza or fried foods for the rest of my life…. but candy — no way!”
Other supermodels who have graced the cover of the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue over the years include Christie Brinkley, Elle Macpherson, Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, and Marisa Miller.
