Hailey Clauson received exciting news on Saturday night at the big reveal of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. She learned she was one of three models chosen to grace the highly anticipated cover.

The model, who is often compared to Brigette Bardot, is in excellent company. Ronda Rousey and Ashley Graham were chosen as cover models, too.

Hailey Clauson loves modeling, but she also loves her boyfriend and her dog. Clauson is dating fellow model Julian Herrera. He is a personal trainer and boxing coach.

It's Hailey Clauson's dog, Mahala, and not Herrera, however, that is prominently featured her Instagram account. The rescued pit bull is her pride and joy.

“My beautiful pit bull, Mahala (who is a rescue) is the most incredible animal (I think she’s a person), everyone should rescue if your looking for a dog or a cat,” she captioned this photo. “Pit bulls always need homes and they are honestly the most loyal and sweet creatures.”

The honor of scoring a Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition cover is expected to raise Hailey Clauson to new heights within the modeling industry.

In fact, People magazine expects she will soon become a household name.

Hailey Clauson--as well as Ashley Graham and Ronda Rousey--can be seen on the sexy Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition covers when the issues hit news stands on Monday.
