Adriana Lima Wants to Get Engaged Again for Valentine's Day

Adriana Lima Valentine's Day Ideas

Valentine’s Day is more than just a Hallmark occasion for Adriana Lima, whose anniversary with NBA star husband Marko Jaric is February 14. The new mom shared with PEOPLE recently just how she keeps the holiday special—and seriously sexy! Instead of grand gestures, the Victoria’s Secret Angel prefers to focus on the intimate details, confessing that the sexiest fragrance is, “the scent of skin” and that music by composer Michael Galasso gets her in a romantic mood. While good lingerie is paramount (she likes the Victoria’s Secret Love Balconet push up bra paired with a black lace thong), Lima is less interested in her outfit, explaining, “What’s worn on top is not important, since it won’t be on for long.” But regardless of racy rationalizations, the star is still a traditionalist. “I would love my husband to propose to marry me again,” she admits, “With a ring and everything.” And the age-old rivalry of flowers versus candy? Settled. “Both,” she says. “For me, flowers and candies should always go together.” We love a woman who knows what she wants.

I’m sure it’s a stretch for a Victoria’s Secret model to be sexy for her husband!

I guess the more money you have…the more you want..I’m not well off, we do ok….we are comfortable…but all I care about is that my husband gets me a simple heartfelt card…One thing I do agree with…sexy lingerie is really kind of a waste!! It doesn’t stay on more than a few minutes!

Awww, that’s nice to hear, I hope that happens?

Ok, how does she go from:
“Instead of grand gestures, the Victoria’s Secret Angel prefers to focus on the intimate details”
then to:
“I would love my husband to propose to marry me again”
Seriously!?!? A second engagement ring is not a ‘grand gesture’…!?!?

Spoiled brat – a 2nd time, really?! Some of us dream of just once from our man let along twice! And a proposal is not a minor gesture, but rather grand…

Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder because if you see a picture of Adriana’s husband, Marko Jaric, you would likely be begging him NOT to propose again.

The use of “NBA star” describe Marko Jaric has always been laughable, and now it’s not even remotely correct, as he’s out of the NBA and playing in an Italian professional league.

@Kyle Rohde..He played in the NBA for several years,and he won lots of titles with the Serbian national team..however to me they are so sweet..
