10 Phenomenal Photos of Seven-Time SI Swimsuit Model Samantha Hoopes in Curaçao
Australian model Samantha Hoopes is an SI Swimsuit veteran. She made her debut in 2014 and returned for a total of seven consecutive features.
“My first year, I came in—I don’t like to use the word lost—but at 22, you’re still kind of finding yourself, figuring out what you like and don’t like,” she said at the time of her most recent appearance in 2020, less than one year after she gave birth to her son in August 2019. “Seven years later, it’s a big difference. I’m a woman. I have a baby.”
Today, the 32-year-old is a mom to 3-year-old son George and 1-year-old daughter Kennedy, whom she shares with her husband, Salvatore Palella.
