The best part about being four months pregnant? For supermodel Adriana Lima, it's being able to eat dessert without guilt. "Now she has an excuse: 'It's not me; it's the baby,'" says her husband, NBA star Marko Jaric, smiling at Lima as he rubs her tiny bump in their midtown Manhattan apartment. "I say, 'Maybe the baby needs some salad,' but I guess the baby is only craving chocolate!"
The couple—who quietly married on Valentine's Day in Wyoming's Jackson Hole Country, with Lima wearing a black vintage sheath—is also of two minds when it comes to where they'll raise the "large family" Lima, 28, says she wants. "She's pulling for [her native] Brazil, but I'm pulling for Europe," says the Serbian-born Jaric, 30. One thing's for sure: Although Lima will keep modeling after the baby arrives in December, she's skipping this fall's Victoria's Secret runway show. "Unless," she says, "I can be dressed as Santa Claus!"
