Poison frontman Bret Michaels’ daughter Raine Michaels is all grown up. The 18-year-old is gracing the latest issue of Sports Illustrated magazine. She told Too Fab,
“Being a part of the 2019 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue is beyond incredible and is still crazy to me to think that I am a part of it.
I still haven't seen the physical copy because in LA they don't get it until like 3 or 4 days after it comes out in NYC, so when I get to see the physical copy for the first time it is going to be a really emotional experience.”
Bret Michaels has already seen the pictures and thinks they are amazing. She added to the source,
“My dad has seen the photos, he thinks they are amazing. I think the direct quote from him was, “You look amazing, Kid!””
The young model, who is also a freshman at Belmont University in Nashville went on,
“It is not awkward at all for me to show him the pictures because he is really supportive and knows that I am doing it for myself and not for anyone else's approval, which is a value he has really installed in both me and my sister.
Both my parents, sister, and friends have been such amazing supporters in my journey and I could not be more grateful.”
Young Michaels had traveled to Miami, Florida to participate in annual Sports Illustrated's "Swimsuit on Location" event. She has been selected in the top 6 among thousands of young women who entered the competition.
She shared her experience,
“When I first found out that I had been chosen to move onto the Top 6 and would be featured in the magazine I was so excited and totally shocked, in a good way obviously.
I found out in my dorm room and then had to go to class after and I was just glowing and shaking the entire day, it was some of the best news I have ever received.”
Hard Work pays off
Raine Michaels also went on about how hard she has worked for a last couple of years,
“I worked out really hard, I joined a boxing gym in Nashville where the rooms are heated so it's like boxing in a hot yoga studio. I loved it. I also have been doing yoga for almost 3 years so I continue with that.
Preparation was definitely a lot of physical preparation but I would say I had to mentally prepare myself more, considering I am very new when it comes to modeling and I was going to be shooting for SI with Yu Tsai, who is so talented and experienced.”
