Adriana Lima and Marko Jaric have called it quits.

The Victoria's Secret model, 32, and the former NBA star, 35, ended their five-year marriage and released a joint statement to People Magazine.

“After long and careful consideration, we have decided to separate after five years of marriage,” the statement read. “We are grateful to be the parents of two incredibly young daughters that we will continue to co-parent. We would greatly appreciate your respect for our family’s privacy as we begin this delicate next chapter for all members of our family.”

The Brazilian beauty and basketball player met at a party in Los Angeles in 2006 and got engaged two years later. They eloped on Valentine’s Day in 2009 in a private civil ceremony in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

“I never saw myself being married. But after I met him, everything changed,” Lima told People shortly after they married. “I knew he was the one and I could see myself married with him and with a big family.

The couple has two daughters Valentina, 4, and Sienna, 19 months.

The split comes eight months after fellow Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr and actor Orlando Bloom announced their separation after three years of marriage.
