Olivia Dunne at the SI Swimsuit Party Will Make a Grown Man Cry for Joy

Olivia Dunne was out celebrating her new Sports Illustrated Swimsuit appearance at the official launch party, and she looked amazing, as always. Did you expect anything less? You know what I find comforting, though? When Dunne found out she was going to be in Sports Illustrated's coveted issue, she broke her privacy agreement to tell one person: her mom. I would totally do the same thing! "As soon as I got off the phone, I was jumping up and down," Dunne said in a video interview with SI Swim. "I called my mom, even though you’re not supposed to tell anyone right away. I had to tell my mom." It doesn't seem like Sports Illustrated was upset with Dunne telling her mom. They've done a few stories about it, so they think it's cute, like I do. Dunne and her mom were able to stay hush-hush until the issue was announced on April 27. Then, she took to her massive social channels to spread the world. Did you know that she has more than 11 million social media followers? She has more than 4.1 million followers on Instagram and more than 7.4 million TikTok followers, so you do the math. Check out photos of Dunne at the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit launch party below!
