But who is Lais Ribeiro dating? Find out all about the lucky man who gets to call himself Lais Ribeiro’s boyfriend in 2017, right here.
So, Who’s the Lucky Guy?
His name is Jared William Homan and there’s no denying many men would like to be in his shoes. Not only because he’s an accomplished basketball player, but also because he’s Lais Ribeiro’s boyfriend! The Iowa native played for the Maccabi Ashdod in the Israeli Premier League.
The Iowa State graduate is not as famous back home, but has caught the eye of NBA scouts. Known to play as a power forward and occasionally a center, Homan built a reputation for putting his entire body into the game. He’s famous for rugged and physical play during games.
Homan started his professional career playing for the Greek club, Maroussi, in 2009. The following year, he signed with Virtus Bologna, but was waived off for allegedly punching the coach.
In 2011, Homan signed with Bayern Munich and then with Spartak Saint Petersburg in 2013. He then played for the Turkish team, Eskişehir Basket, a year later.
The 34-year-old is also a member of the senior men’s Bulgarian national team.
Homan doesn’t shy away from showing his love for his girlfriend on Instagram, either. And really, who can blame the guy! After all, she is Lais Ribeiro!
He’s ecstatic about Ribeiro being chosen for the highest honor an Angel could get. His Instagram post after the big announcement shows how proud he is of his girlfriend.
Ribeiro’s Dating Timeline
Before Homan, Ribeiro dated supermodel, Adrian Cardoso. The Spanish hunk has been published in magazines like GQ, Esquire, and L’Officiel Hommes all over the world, and modeled for brands like Hugo Boss and Diesel, among many others.
The 27-year-old dated Cardoso for three years from 2012 to 2015. He’s reportedly a year younger than her. Shortly after their breakup, she earned her wings and became an official VS model in 2015.
Mothers are “Angels”
Perhaps no other male can have as much precedence in her life than her son, Alexandre Ribeiro. The model was 19 when she gave birth to him. His father is not known, and it appears that she’s raising him by herself.
Soon after Alexandre was born, a friend encouraged Ribeiro to model. And soon enough, she was walking on the biggest runways in the world!
Being a mother doesn’t stop this supermodel! If anything, her son is her biggest motivation.
“My son motivates me a lot. Because I don’t want to wake up and he just jumps on me and I have to be up,” said Ribeiro.
Lais Ribeiro is a doting mom, and little Alexandre often gets to hang out with her at photoshoots.
The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air on November 28 at 10:00 p.m. EST on CBS!
