One of the perks of being a pro athlete? The paycheck. At least, to those of us who don't play professional sports, making $5 million a year to play football seems like a pretty okay gig.

Another perk of that job? The athletes would probably say it's the hot wives and girlfriends.

Until they find out that their wives and girlfriends make more money than they do. 

But some guys, like Hank Baskett and Gerard Pique don't seem to care that their wives are bringing home the bacon. They're all... enlightened or something.

(Or they just like the money and don't care who makes it. That's probably it.)

Here are 9 athletes who make LESS money than their wives or girlfriends:

Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima and NBA player Marko Jaric announced today that they've reached a mutual decision to split up.

"After long and careful consideration, we have decided to separate after five years of marriage," reads a joint statement issued by Adriana and Marko to People magazine. 

Adriana and Marko married in 2009 after just nine months of dating.

Adriana became pregnant with the couples' first child shortly after their wedding, and she gave birth to a second daughter in 2012.

The press release from the couple emphasizes that the health and happiness of their two children continues to be Jaric and Lima's top priority:

Victoria's Secret angel Adriana Lima now has one of her own. She and her husband, NBA player Marko Jaric, welcomed a daughter on Sunday in New York.

"Adriana and Marko are thrilled to announce they had a baby girl, Valentina Lima Jaric," a rep for Lima said. "Mother, father and baby are all doing well."

Lima met the Memphis Grizzlies player in 2006 and got engaged two years later on her birthday. The pair eloped on Valentine's Day this year in Wyoming.

Soon after the honeymoon, Lima learned she was expecting: "We are so excited!" she said at the time. "We wanted this. We were absolutely ready."

"Even in my wildest days I knew that I wanted to be the ultimate family man," Jaric, who averaged 2.6 points per game for Memphis last year, but is probably the most popular guy on the bench because he sees Adriana Lima nude, said.

"We're very ready to settle down."

Congratulations to the couple!

It's official:

Marko Jaric has seen Adriana Lima nude at least once.

Worth a Lot

A spokesperson for the super, super model and her professional basketball-playing husband has confirmed that Lima is knocked up:

“Adriana and Marko are overjoyed that they are expecting their first child together and are excited to share the happy news and start their family together.”

We wish nothing but the best to this cute couple!

Marko Jaric has shot and scored... a gorgeous wife!

The mediocre Memphis Grizzlies shooting guard eloped with super duper model Adriana Lima on Valentine's Day in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It was a small, private civil ceremony.

"We are so excited about our future together," said Lima. "And we are really looking forward to a big romantic wedding this summer with all of our friends and family."

What is the world coming to?

Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr and Brandon Davis - yes, the racist, loathsome Greasy Bear! - were spotted hooking up. Unbelievable.

On a similarly weird, if less oily note, mediocre NBA player Marko Jaric somehow got supermodel Adriana Lima to sign him to a lifetime deal.

Greasy and Miranda - who just dumped Orlando Bloom - have actually been linked more than once. The latter was seen last night at the ESPYs.

We don't know which pair is more shocking:

How do dudes like Marko Jaric (left) and Brandon Davis score Adriana Lima and Miranda Kerr (right)? That's not a rhetorical question, we really don't know.

The Boston Celtics may have enjoyed an historic comeback victory over the Los Angeles Lakers in Game Four of the NBA Finals last night - but the happiest player in the NBA right now doesn't wear green.

Indeed, Marko Jaric surprised super model Adriana Lima on her birthday yesterday with a proposal.

Worth a Lot

"He asked and she said yes. They are both incredibly happy and couldn't be more in love," said publicist James Weir.

Marko Jaric will be seeing Adriana Lima nude for the rest of his life. Now, if you'll excuse us, we need to work on our jump shot.

This odd pairing has been together for about nine months, as the Serbian star admitted in March that Lima had captured his heart.

"I was not the person to fall in love easily. I am a difficult person from that standpoint," he said at the time. "Now, it's a little different situation."

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.

Marco Jaric averages 9.3 points per game for the worst team in the NBA. But the random Minnesota Timberwolves guard is among the leaders for MVP voting now that his relationship with Victoria's Secret goddess, Adriana Lima, has been made public.

While teammate Mark Madsen wouldn't comment on whether or not anything he's seen on Marko Jaric in the shower might have led to this impressive conquest, he did say that Lima has helped Jaric's mediocre basketball skills:

Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, and Adriana Lima

"Ever since he started dating Adriana Lima, he's a new man. He's flying all over the court. He dunked! I've never seen him dunk."

Take this, Tony Romo! Marko Jaric is one-upping your tanging of Jessica Simpson (and Alli Sims, and Sophia Bush, and Carrie Underwood...) with Adriana Lima.
