Ever wonder what a swimsuit model’s parents think about their child baring it all for millions to gawk over? If the answer is yes, Canadian tennis star Genie Bouchard provided some insight by sharing a text conversation she had with her father, Michel.
Mr. Bouchard was a little weirded out, but admitted the photos are tastefully done — basically he was a good sport about the whole thing:
Genie, of course, is part of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit for the second year in a row so maybe Mr. Bouchard isn’t as shellshocked this time around. She told SI she was more comfortable this time around in an interview:
“It was definitely easier! I was much less nervous this time around. I felt I had experience from my first SI shoot which helped me for this second one. I actually asked MJ to ‘go for it’ more in this shoot because I felt so comfortable.”
