Tyra Banks says she’s ‘proud’ she crashed the Sports Illustrated website when she posed in a yellow bikini at 45… as she prepares for DWTS hosting job

Tyra Banks feels ‘proud’ that her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue shoot managed to crash the magazine’s website.

The 46-year-old beauty has starred on the cover three times during her career – in 1996, 1997 and 2019 – and Tyra was especially pleased to see the impact of her latest shoot for the magazine.

‘I was on it, again, last year,’ began the supermodel turned TV host. ‘And for the first time in the history of the Sports Illustrated having a website – not Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition website, the Sports Illustrated website – it crashed.’

Speaking to NPR, Tyra added: ‘I’m proud of that.’

Tyra has recently replaced Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews as the new host of ‘Dancing with the Stars’, and the model has confessed she’s looking forward to the challenge.

The TV star also admitted she’s nervous about ‘stepping into [their] shoes’ on the series.

She explained: ‘I think the challenge is stepping into shoes. I mean, you know, Tom Bergeron and Erin. They lead the show, this is one of the top-rated shows in the world. So [I’m] respecting the stage that they have set and then adding my icing to that.

‘I feel confident about that, but of course, it’s a challenge, but I don’t back away from challenges.’

And although she’s hoping the live shows go off without a hitch, Tyra admitted she isn’t too worried about making mistakes.

She said: ‘I love when something wrong happens because the world can see, like, the imperfection. I always say, ‘Show the mishaps and the malfunctions and the mistakes.”

Last week Tyra said to UsWeekly: ‘My goal is for a 12-year-old to be sitting on the couch with their parents and grandparents and everybody can relate personally to what they see on that screen.

‘That’s a hint. Not giving up the goods. You’ll have to tune in!’ 

Tyra has been dating 45-year-old Canadian businessman Louis Bélanger-Martin since August 2018.

They were seen getting ice cream together last week in LA 

In August she seemed to have on a diamond ring in photos obtained by DailyMail.com. DailMail.com has reached out to Tyra’s reps for confirmation of her relationship status.  

The businessman shares a 12-year-old son with his ex-wife Valérie Martin Scraire, while Tyra has a three-year-old son named York with her ex, Norwegian photographer Erik Asla.
