The magazine released a few of the photos on Wednesday, and they're just as stunning as we imagined! Teigen sports a bright purple bikini in one of the snaps, seductively gazing into the camera while showing off her fit figure and gorgeous beach waves.

Another sexy pic features Teigen topless, wearing barely-there bikini bottoms that highlight her seemingly flawless backside and toned legs.

But in a behind-the-scenes clip from her photo shoot, the brunette beauty confessed she was a little hesitant to say 'yes' to the gig so soon after giving birth.

"It's been a while since I've done anything swimsuit," she said at the time. "I haven't shot since baby. But of course you know that [SI Swimsuit editor] MJ [Day] and everybody at Sports Illustrated in general is going to embrace your body no matter what's happening and embrace the changes."

In the same clip, Day explained that Teigen showed up to the shoot originally requesting to only wear one pieces and "a blanket over the top" to cover her up.

"I think she surprised herself on this trip," she said. "Because I don't think she was seeing herself quite the way we were seeing her."

"I told her she has to have a baby every year, because I've never seen her look so good and move so great and take such amazing pictures," Day continued. "Everyone thinks models are just so effortlessly walking around naked all the time, but you have to really prepare mentally for something like that and trust the people that you work with, and [Chrissy] does that."
