Alex Bregman's model fiancee Reagan Howard took to Instagram on Monday and made her pitch to Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. Part of her pitch was the fact that she faced a ton of rejection for the size of her body.
Apparently her blonde hair and lean body hindered her modeling career. Who knew? Reagan also revealed that it's been a dream of hers since she was 15 to appear in Sports Illustrated's swimsuit edition.
Alex Bregman’s fiancee Reagan Howard has had a Sports Illustrated swimsuit modeling dream since she was 15 and now Reagan is throwing her swimsuit into the ring and applying to live out her dream to be a Sports Illustrated model. Let’s be honest here, this can’t be about making a few dollars because Bregman’s under contract for $87,000,000 from 2021-2024 on top of the nearly $15M he’s made over his first four years in Major League Baseball.
Something tells me they’ll live comfortably after tying the knot, so this is 100% about Reagan doing something that’s on the bucket list and her dream was clearly spelled out during a Monday Instagram video.

I’ve always been told not to “be too much” or “try too hard.” I was pressured to believe that my identity could rest solely in one thing. Life is WAY too short to let anyone put you in a box & not pursue all of your dreams with all you’ve got 👊🏼 When I was 17, I faced a lot of rejection in the modeling industry for being too big. Although I pursued a different career, I still love modeling to this day. Here’s to breaking molds and being you, no matter how many different things that may be. 👩🏼💻🏋🏼♀️👩🏼🎓🏄🏼♀️👩🏼🎨👰🏼💃🏼 #feelgoodfuel #siswimsuit #siswimsearch #strongissexy #nerdherd @si_swimsuit @si_swimsearch @mj_day

My first job was as a busgirl. I’ve hosted financial literacy workshops in Panama, been a full time cold-caller, worked with gaming companies to migrate cloud workloads & become a machine learning enthusiast. I’ve had many jobs and each one has taught me something I needed to be where I’m at today. When I was 15, I saw @barrefaeli on the cover of Sports Illustrated and remember being so inspired and dreaming of that being me one day. @si_swimsuit is creating a space for women to break stereotypes and it’s a movement I couldn’t be more pumped about 👏🏼😝 I am SO EXCITED to say that this is my official SI Submission Video! ♥ I’m freaking out!!!! Thank you to everyone for all your support on my last post. I’m so thankful for women like @camillekostek @ashleygraham @haleyybaylee & so many more that inspire me everyday ✨ #siswimsearch #feelgoodfuel #siswimsuit #nerdherd
Good luck, Reagan.
If being the future wife of an Astros third baseman isn't enough to help you get your foot in the door, maybe Alex can help you cheat to get in. He is very good at that.
Don't get me wrong, she's got my vote!
