Danielle Herrington is so excited about her Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover!

The 24-year-old Compton-bred model became the third African-American model in the magazine’s history to grace the cover of their annual swimsuit issue.

“I am over the moon. I am so happy to follow in [Beyonce and Tyra Banks'] footsteps. I am so overwhelmed by it. I can’t wait to be a business woman like them,” Danielle said during an appearance on Good Morning America on Tuesday (February 13).

She also revealed to ABC News that she cried when she found out she was selected!

“I was in tears. I was bawling…I worked so hard for this. To see my hard work pay off, I reached my dream.”

Tyra also surprised Danielle with a special message on GMA: “Do you really understand what’s going down right now? Do you really understand how your life is going to change? So many little girls are looking at you, ‘OMG, that could be me one day,” she said.
