Happy birthday, Brooks Nader! The SI Swimsuit model is celebrating another trip around the sun while soaking up some vitamin D in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, with the SI Swimsuit team.

Nader made her SI Swimsuit debut in 2019, and this spring, she will return for her fifth consecutive appearance in the magazine. Nader, who was discovered during the brand’s Swim Search open casting call, is currently on location in the Caribbean with Katie Austin, Hailey Clauson and Camille Kostek.

For the first time ever, the SI Swimsuit team is releasing photo shoot footage in real-time, and the brand’s official IG account shared a few behind-the-scenes snaps from Nader’s photo shoot.

In the pics, Nader wore a vibrant blue and red string bikini by Los Angeles-based clothing brand SAME, as well as a high-cut magenta two-piece swimsuit by Trina Turk.

“POV: You’re looking through the lens of SI Swim as we make magic happen with today’s birthday babe @brooksnader 💫 ,” the brand wrote. “Happy birthday and welcome back for 2023 Brooks!👙.”
