Adriana Lima Getting Married

Men (and some women) around the world may want to take a personal day of mourning today: Adriana Lima, one of the world's hottest women and object of many fantasies, is officially off the market. The Brazilian supermodel is engaged to basketball player Marko Jaric, one of the star players on the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Marko popped the question last night—Adriana's birthday—his rep told People. "He asked and she said yes. They are both incredibly happy and couldn't be more in love," says publicist James Weir.

Until now, both 27-year-old Adriana (who used to date Lenny Kravitz) and 29-year-old Marko have been known to keep their hearts on lockdown. "I was not the person to fall in love easily. I am a difficult person from that standpoint," Marko told People last March. "Now, it's a little different situation." Adriana, who is a devout Catholic, echoed his sentiments during a recent interview with GQ: "I believe love just happens once. You can be mistaken, you can think you are in love, but after a while you discover that you're really not. Real love is different."

It doesn't seem too long ago that Adriana professed to being a virgin—and staying that way until she was married. Maybe the urge to be naughty had something to do with Marko's surprise proposal? Hey, at least Adriana will have something to keep her occupied during those long Minnesota winters...
