Adriana Lima (born June 12, 1981) is a Brazilian model.


She was born in Salvador, Brazil, and is the daughter of Nelson Torres and Maria das Graças Lima, a social worker. Her father left the family when she was six months old, and Lima was raised only by her mother.

About her ethnicity, she has stated that she is an Afro-Brazilian of Portuguese, Swiss, Native Brazilian, Japanese, and West Indian ancestry (which classifies her as a Pardo Brazilian).

She speaks four languages: her native Portuguese, English, Italian, and Spanish.

Career beginningsEdit

She never thought about being a model, although she had won many beauty pageants in elementary school. However, a friend at school who wanted to enter a modeling contest and did not want to enter alone, so Lima entered with her. Both sent in pictures, and the contest sponsor soon asked Lima to come out for the competition. Soon after, at the age of 15, she entered and finished in first place in Ford's "Supermodel of Brazil" model search. She subsequently entered the 1996 Ford Models "Supermodel of the World" contest and finished in second place. Three years later, she moved to New York City and signed with Elite Model Management.

Personal lifeEdit

After dating for nine months she became engaged to Serbian NBA player Marko Jarić in June 2008. They were married on February 14, 2009, in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. On May 2, 2014, they announced their separation after five years of marriage. The divorce was finalized in March 2016. They have two daughters, Valentina (born November 15, 2009 (2009-11-15) (age 10)) and Sienna (born September 12, 2012 (2012-09-12) (age 7)).

She dated writer Metin Hara from 2017-2019.
