Minnesota Timberwolves star Marko Jaric is "over the moon" about his new love, Victoria's Secret supermodel Adriana Lima. But don't believe celebrity gossip that he's shopping for engagement rings. At least not yet.
The couple have been dating for the last six months, but Marko Jaric says he was perplexed by recent celebrity news sites' reports talking about him checking out local jewelry stores for a rock for Adriana Lima.
"I am not shopping right now," the 29-year-old Serbian Sensation said.
"But I could start tomorrow. I am that close. I'm definitely not yet engaged, but it doesn't mean we're not thinking about it."
Marko Jaric may not hit many jump shots, but he's hitting Adriana Lima.
When the time comes, however, the entire process may come as a surprise.
"I would rather keep that my own secret," says Marko Jaric, who averages a pedestrian 7.7 points and 2.9 rebounds per game career.
"It's a life decision ... a private thing."
Jaric admits he's not normally such a romantic, but being with a Brazilian supermodel like Adriana Lima has changed him. Funny how that will do it.
"I was not the person to fall in love easily. I am a difficult person from that standpoint," he says. "Now, it's a little different situation."
Just give it time. This guy is so smitten it's not even funny. In a few months these two will be engaged just like Jamie Lynn Spears and Casey Aldridge. Watch.
