June 13, 2008: "Marko Jaric And Adriana Lima Engaged"
supermodel Adriana Lima received an engagement ring Thursday night from basketball star Marko Jaric, his rep tells PEOPLE.
"He asked and she said yes. They are both incredibly happy and couldn't be more in love," says publicist James Weir.
Adriana Lima and Jaric have been dating for about nine months.
The normally stoic Serb sports star has admitted he fell hard for the Victoria's Secret beauty.
"I was not the person to fall in love easily. I am a difficult person from that standpoint," he told PEOPLE in March. "Now, it's a little different situation."

Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima is largely recognized as the face of Victoria's Secret. The 5'10" model was born in 1982 in Salvador, Brazil, and has a mix of French, Portuguese, Native American and Caribbean roots. Lima was discovered at a mall when she was just 13 years old. Two years later she received a first place award in a "Ford Supermodel of Brazil" model search. In 1996 she finished second place in a "Ford Supermodel of the World" contest.
Shortly after, Lima decided to advance her career by moving to New York City and signing on with Elite Model Management. She appeared in international editions of Vogue and Marie Claire magazines in 1997-98 and did some runway work. But her big break occurred when she was featured in her underwear in a billboard for Vassarette in Times Square. She then became a Guess? model and graced the covers of Harper's Bazaar and Elle. Lima's foray into Victoria's Secret began with runway work in 2000. She was also the show opener for the 2003 fashion show.
In her spare time, the supermodel focuses on the Caminos Da Luz orphanage in Bahia, her native hometown in Brazil. To stay fit, Lima practices Capoeira, a Brazilian martial art that combines dance, music, and choreographed fighting.
