It's official -- Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley will replace Megan Fox in the Transformers franchise.

Director Michael Bay welcomed the 23-year-old Brit on his official Web site Wednesday evening.

"I would like for all you S4TE fans to welcome Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to the world of Transformers," the post reads. "As some of you might know, she's the new female lead in Transformers 3."

This isn't the first time the supermodel has teamed up with the acclaimed director -- though it will mark her acting debut. The two first worked together when Bay helmed Victoria's Secret "A Thousand Fantasies" ad in 2009.

But don't expect Fox, who starred opposite Shia LeBeouf in $1.5 billion-grossing franchise, to hold any grudges.

"Megan Fox left on her own accord," a rep for the actress, 24, told UsMagazine.com on May 19. "She wishes the franchise well."

Fox and and Bay have notoriously butted heads over the years: Fox accused the director of forcing her to model skimpy outfits and said he was a "nightmare to work for." The director responded by saying she "needs to grow up" before calling her "dumb as a brick" and "ungracious."
