Machine Gun Kelly is a supportive fiancé and he has one specific word to describe Megan Fox’s 2023 SI Swimsuit Issue cover photo: “hot.”

The actress walked the red carpet alone during the magazine’s launch party on May 18 at the Hard Rock Hotel in New York City, but the rapper made a quick appearance by her side to celebrate the publication’s release. Fox was photographed by Greg Swales in the Dominican Republic.

The couple, who got engaged in January 2022 after dating for two years, arrived at the event separately and shared a quick hug on the carpet before the 37-year-old dashed inside to let the 33-year-old model have her moment. Kelly interrupted Fox’s interview with Entertainment Tonight for a second to ask her to take a photo together.

“What did you think of that cover, MGK?” a reporter asked the “my ex’s best friend” singer as he began to walk away.

“Hot,” he replied without hesitation.

“What was your first reaction when SI called you to say, ‘We want you to be one of our cover gals?’” the reporter asked the Jennifer’s Body star.

“I think I had sort of manifested it a little bit earlier, a few weeks earlier,” the mom of three revealed. “I had been like, ‘I really think I should do the cover of Sports Illustrated. I’ve never done it. I’ve been in Hollywood for a long time.’ And then a few weeks later, they called.”
