Bruce Jenner has landed an upcoming cover for Vanity Fair, the first print photo shoot and interview since the former Olympian revealed plans to transition from male to female.

People magazine reports that Annie Leibovitz will shoot Jenner as a woman — a first for a celebrity athlete who has posed for his share of magazine covers over the years, from Sports Illustrated to GQ.

Reps for Vanity Fair, Liebovitz, and Jenner have not yet responded to requests for comment.

Jenner’s Vanity Fair pictorial is expected to hit stands this summer.

During a recent “Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce” special, taped earlier this year, Jenner told stepdaughter Khloé Kardashian he was planning to fully transition “Probably in the spring.”

Jenner will chronicle his new life as a woman in an eight-part docuseries premiering in July on E!

If Jenner indeed reveals himself as female for the first time, it could net record-breaking newsstand sales for the Conde Nast title — whose best-selling cover, in September 2005, featured Jennifer Aniston‘s first interview after separating from Brad Pitt

Leibovitz, a veteran photographer, most recently photographed the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” cast for Vanity Fair’s June cover and has chronicled the world’s biggest celebrities over her 40-plus year career, including Michael Jackson, George Clooney, Queen Elizabeth II, Johnny Depp and Lady Gaga.
