Alexis Ren is making major career moves. The one-time SI Swimsuit model has signed with WME for representation. She announced the exciting news on Instagram on April 17, along with a screenshot of an exclusive article with Deadline.

“very honored and grateful to have signed with @wme for this new chapter of my career!” Ren wrote in her caption. “Thank you ❤️ so excited for what’s ahead!”

The 26-year-old media personality and actress was featured in the 2018 SI Swimsuit Issue after she posed for photographer Yu Tsai in Aruba. Ren was then named Rookie of the Year.

Last year, Ren was featured alongside Antonio Banderas and Kate Bosworth in The Enforcer. She’s also set to star in the forthcoming thriller Latency.

Outside of her work as a model and actress, Ren is also an entrepreneur. She’s the founder of We Are Warriors, an online platform that provides users with educational mental health and wellness content.

“I’m SO happy for you!! You deserve every good thing — and it’s ALL happening. Sending love. Always! And, miss your face 💋,” Monique Coleman commented on Ren’s statement.

“Congratulations! I am so happy for you! ❤️,” Jacqueline Saturn gushed.

Several fans wrote that they initially misread Ren’s announcement in a major way.

“I thought this said WWE,” one person admitted. “I was like oh you about to be a wrestler? 🤣.”

“I most definitely need glasses, I thought that said WWE,” someone else quipped.
