Bret Michaels' daughter named as SI Swimsuit finalist: See photos of Raine Michaels!

Say hello to Raine Michaels!

The up-and-coming model, who also happens to be the daughter of rocker Bret Michaels, was announced as one of the six finalists in the 2019 SI Swimsuit model search competition. In other words, the 18-year-old beauty has a one in six chance of shooting a spread for this year's edition of the iconic magazine issue.

"This blonde beauty is so much more than the daughter of a rockstar," the site's description of Raine said. "Since graduating high school last summer, Raine has started classes at Belmont University, where she balances a busy schedule of music classes and modeling."

After she was announced as a finalist, Raine took to Instagram to respond to the exciting news.
