Musician Bret Michaels‘ daughter is coming into her own. In an Instagram post on Tuesday, 18-year-old Raine Michaels announced that she has made it into the top six of Sports Illustrated‘s competition to find models for its next swimsuit issue. “Feeling so many emotions right now as I announce that I am moving onto the Top 6 of the #siswimsearch and will officially be apart of the 2019 @si_swimsuit issue that comes out this May,” she wrote. She also said it had been her “dream to be a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model” since she was 13 years old.

Michaels joins five other women, including Veronica Pomee, the first Polynesian woman to appear in an issue of SI Swimsuit, in the final round of SI‘s open-call auditions that began with over 10,000 audition tapes. This is only the second time that SI Swimsuit has hosted an open casting call for its famous swimsuit edition that comes out annually. Michaels’ initial audition was a video she posted on her Instagram page, after which she was called in for an in-person interview and subsequently made it into the top 67, the top 16, and, ultimately, the final six.

Michaels’ rocker father expressed pride for his daughter in an interview with People. “My oldest daughter Raine works hard and is a kind, humble soul,” he said. “She was really excited to be involved with Sports Illustrated.”

Michaels is currently a student at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn., where she is studying music while modeling on the side. She also made a brief cameo appearance in 2018’s The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time.
