Lais announced her engagement to her sportsman partner Joakim Noah on Instagram at the weekend after he popped the question at Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert.

The model posted a picture of the moment she said ‘I do’, appearing to be topless as she hugged her new fiancé inside a tent. 

She wrote in the caption: ‘I’m a bit late for Burning Man pics and of course I didn’t touch my phone for 5 days and I don’t have a single pic. But thanks to my Bff @jeromeduran he captured one of the best moments in my life!

‘@stickity13 [Joakim] surprised me at my fav place in the world and proposed. And I couldn’t be happier! We are getting married guys.’ (sic)

Prior to that, Lais was in a relationship with basketball player Jared Homan, 36, for three years. 

The model has a son Alexandre, 11, from a previous relationship, who was born a year before her catwalk career kicked off.  

Lais has previously documented her life as a single mother, admitting balancing parenting and modelling is ‘so hard’.

She said in an interview with Parents magazine: ‘I try to be very professional but at the same time, I try to be there for my kid and sometimes it’s hard because we travel a lot. 

So sweet: The basketball star said proposing to the model was the 'easiest decision of his life' and promised the couple's wedding is 'about to be lit'

‘With the help of my mom and sometimes my sister comes to help me, I just try to be there for Alexandre. Somehow I am doing it. I used to live with my mom, after she left I told her I had no idea this was so hard.  

‘I have the same responsibilities as a mom, which come before I do my glam or whatever it is. People sometimes don’t realise it’s so hard.’

Lais was training to be a nurse before entering the modelling world, walking runways for the likes of Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, and Marc Jacobs.

Her Victoria’s Secret career kicked off in 2010, and she became an Angel for the lingerie brand in 2015.
