Sports Illustrated 2012 Swimsuit Issue cover model Kate Upton is living the dream!

Access Hollywood caught up with the 19-year-old bombshell last night at the launch party for the highly anticipated issue in New York, where she was beaming over her new gig.

“I’m enjoying every minute of it. It’s a dream come true to be on the cover,” Kate gushed.

The beauty said she didn’t mind the world seeing her in a super skimpy red-hot bikini.

“I think that’s what Sports Illustrated is all about, feeling confident in your body and I love it,” she continued. “I’m feeling very great.”

Kate’s fans might not recognize her when she appears on the big screen in the upcoming “The Three Stooges,” where she’s all covered up playing a nun.

“It was a great experience,” she said of the Farrelly brothers’ comedy. “Hopefully I can continue in acting.”
