People often are surprised when they learn that one of the world’s top supermodels, Adriana Lima, is pro-life and pro-abstinence.

Lima, a Catholic, is well known as one of Victoria’s Secret’s longest-running models. But her devotion to abstinence and her faith also has drawn a lot of media attention her way.

“Sex is for after marriage… [Men] have to respect that this is my choice. If there’s no respect, that means they don’t want me,” she said previously.

True to her word, Lima said she waited to have sex until she married her husband, basketball player Marko Jaric, at age 27, according to the Huffington Post. Several years ago, she also told GQ that she thinks abortion is “a crime.”
