Adriana Lima, the longest-running Victoria Secret Angel can also add ultimate NFL wag. It seems the 35-year-old actress and model has found love with a New England Patriot! Famous for her Super Bowl Ads, Lima and WR Julian Edelman were pictured holding hands in broad daylight.
According to TMZ, the new lovebirds where seen taking a stroll at Straight Wharf in Nantucket over the weekend. The site says Lima and Julian were introduced by mutual friends in early July, while in Miami and have been seeing each other ever since.
The stunning, divorced and hot mom of two, Lima has been linked to a number of men in the past including former husband Marko Jaric and Joe Thomas. But, it was about time she dated someone as equally hot as she is! Having said that, a new relationship with a famous and successful athlete like Julian Edelman, makes perfect sense. She is five-years-older than her alleged beau, Julian Edelman but is no biggie.
Edelman was born on May 22, 1986 in Redwood City, California. The 30-year-old is currently in his 8th season.
The wide receiver made his NFL debut in 2009 for the New England Patriots and helped the team win Super Bowl XLIX in 2015.
He played one year of college football at College of San Mateo, and three years at Kent State University. In college he was a quarterback, but after being selected in the 7th round of the 2009 NFL draft, he converted to wide receiver.
He was re-signed by the New England Patriots as an unrestricted free agent on March 18, 2014. He was originally drafted by New England in the seventh round (232nd overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft and re-signed by New England as an unrestricted free agent.
In 2010 Edelman, set a franchise record for the highest punt return average in a single-season with a 15.3-yard average, which led the AFC and finished second in the NFL behind Chicago’s Devin Hester. Also had a 15.5-yard return average in 2012 but was limited due to injury to 17 punt returns in nine games. The following year, he set a franchise record with a 94-yard punt return for a touchdown vs. Miami.
Lima’s new man has totaled 142 punt returns for 1,697 yards during his career, a 12.0 average, tying the best in Patriots history and seventh in NFL history. He currently holds the team record with four punt return touchdowns.
Edelman earned his first career Pro Bowl invitation in 2014 after finishing eighth in the NFL with 92 receptions.
Adriana –who was married for five-years to NBA player Marko Jaric –is also the mother of two children, Valentina and Sienna Lima, both born from her marriage to Jaric. She and the Serbian player tied the knot in 2009 but were divorced in 2014.
Does her new relationship to Julian Edelman means she is not an NBA fan anymore? Who knows, what we do know is that the Brazilian stunner and hunky Edelman looked pretty into each other.
Julian has also done some modeling and according to his page, he is a smoothie “connoisseur”; basically he is also a model who likes to eat healthy, who better partner for Adriana Lima.
