Adriana Lima Separates From Her Husband Of Five Years
It looks like there's sad news for a Victoria's Secret angel today. Adriana Lima has separated from her husband of five years, basketball player Marko Jaric. The two wish to stay private about the matter, but for now, they have said in a statement:
After long and careful consideration, we have decided to separate after five years of marriage," they said in a joint statement. "We are grateful to be the parents of two incredible young daughters that we will continue to co-parent. We would greatly appreciate your respect for our family's privacy as we begin this delicate next chapter for all members of our family.
Lima and Jaric have two daughters together, Valentina and Sienna, who are four-and-a-half and one-and-a-half, respectively.
The 32-year-old model met the 35-year-old Serbian NBA star back in 2007, and the couple eloped back in 2009, exchanging vows in a private ceremony in Jacksonhole, Wyoming on Valentine's Day. Lima seemed overwhelmed with joy, as People reports that she has previously said:
Our life, we live in a honeymoon [...] I never saw myself I never saw myself being married. But after I met him, everything changed. I knew he was the one and I could see myself married with him and with a big family.
It's sad, as Lima was obviously smitten with Jaric — she famously held onto her virginity until she married him — so it's unfortunate to hear this news. Still, the the couple seem set on making sure that even though their relationship did not last, that their children will not have any consequences.
