One of the most interesting stories about every model is how their parents react when they’re careers take off. And, as you might expect, it’s the father who usually has the strongest reaction.

Georgia Gibbs recently made her debut in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and despite being very supportive of his daughter, Gibbs’ police officer father is apparently hiding the magazine from his co-workers.

“Honestly, my dad is my best friend. He is the most supportive, incredible man. He’s actually fine with the attention I’m getting and super proud,” Gibbs said. “I think it’s more at work, he’ll be hiding the issue from many of his colleagues,” the beautiful blonde said with a laugh.
