Kim Kardashian has confidently posed in a bikini from her own brand SKIMS as she opened up about hopes to become "more private".
The 41 year old mum-of-four dons a nude bikini with matching sheer gloves as she perches on rocks around the Lagoon in the confident snaps.
Her long dark hair is slicked back as she gazes at the camera with the stunning scenery of the Dominican Republic behind her.
Kim's sister Kylie Jenner was quick to respond to Kim's snap on Instagram, posting a love heart face with many of her fans and friends commenting with flame emojis to compliment the star.
Kim is clearly delighted to be on the cover of Sports Illustrated, captioning her post on Instagram: "OMG I’m a Sports Illustrated cover girl!!!! We shot this back in January and it’s been so hard to keep this cover a secret!
"For the location we went back to one of my favourite places in the world, the Dominican Republic!
"It’s such an honour and a dream to be on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Bucket List goals!!!!"
In her interview with the magazine, she opened up on the difficult times she's faced recently, penning it in the form of a letter to her younger self.
She shared that she wants to become a "more private person" and learn to put her family first, while reminding herself to "ignore the criticism" and to focus on "helping other people" instead.
"It's easy to say to just ignore the criticism, but another thing you'll learn is that at some point it will click in your head that it's not about you anymore," Kim wrote in the emotional letter.
The Kardashians star continued: "It's about family. It's about helping other people. For years you'll be putting yourself out there… But you're going to become a more private person and you're going to come to realize that the way to get your story out there – the actual narrative, the truth – isn't by engaging but by doing.
"But know this. When you get here, to May 2022, you're not going to be content. You're still going to be looking for that next "it" And when you find it, you're going to do it – we're going to do it – like we always do: to the fullest."
