Samantha Hoopes first appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2014. If her recent Instagram post is any indication, she will be appearing in the magazine’s latest issue. Her update appeared to be a behind-the-scenes look at a photo shoot that featured her posing in a tiny bikini.

The geotag for Samantha’s update indicated that it was filmed in the British Virgin Islands. The clip captured the model from the front while a gorgeous view of the ocean was visible in the distance.

The 29-year-old model styled her hair parted in the middle and down in beachy waves. Her makeup application looked to include shaped brows, smoky eyeshadow, smudged eyeliner, and a coat of mascara. She also wore blush on the apples of her cheeks, along with a pink gloss on her lips.

The video began with a closeup shot of Samantha’s pretty face as she looked on directly. The camera zoomed back slowly as she showed off her figure. The camera then stopped, capturing her body from the middle of her thighs up. The beauty placed her arms over her head, showing off her amazingly flat abs. She turned her head to one side and stood with one hip cocked to the side, putting her curves on display.

The camera then zoomed back in on Samantha. She gazed into the lens with a sexy smile on her face while she held her arms above her head. As the camera moved in closer, she turned to the side, flaunting her cleavage and flat tummy. She also flashed a bit of sideboob just before she turned back and bent over slightly.

Samantha does look incredible, considering the fact that she gave birth to her son, George, last August. She seems to enjoy sharing photos of her life as a new mom with her fans. She recently showed off her son — along with her smoking-hot body — while wearing a red bikini.
