Hannah leapt to a new level of fame when she was chosen to solo on the cover of the 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Many girls appear on the cover, but appearing alone is a next level higher. Rumors circulated well before the announcement that she was the girl, but the cover still made a sensation. Some minor controversy arose because of the pose she adopted on the cover, but it isn't that scandalous. Just for the record, Hannah has been in the Swimsuit Edition in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 - so far. She reportedly was pregnant while filming the 2017 cover, but wasn't showing.
Hannah grew up in Saint Thomas, in the U.S. Virgin Islands and was an athlete growing up. She got into modelling at age 14 when a family friend brought her up to IMG in New York. She was a hit right off, and soon, she says, she "started faking sicknesses and leaving school and coming up for jobs, and I've been here ever since."

Hannah was perpetually rumored to be on the verge of marrying her apparent boyfriend, New York Yankees star Derek Jeter. They kept everyone in suspense for several years. Derek Jeter finally tied the knot with Hannah Davis at Meadowood Napa Valley Resort in St. Helena, California on July 9, 2016. Hannah changed her professional name to Hannah Jeter, but everyone still knows her as Hannah Davis.
