News of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue’s 2011 cover has leaked early thanks to a gaffe in New York City.
The annual cover, featuring soccer stud Cristiano Ronaldo’s Russian girlfriend Irina Shayk, was supposed to be unveiled at midnight New York time on The Late Show with David Letterman, but a test run for the show exposed the cover shot for the eagle-eyed when a massive billboard of the iconic cover was briefly unveiled on Monday afternoon.

Shayk, 25, has featured in the past five SI Swimsuit Issues but she has never appeared on the cover.
