JUST like her husband, Adriana Caleta-Car is used to stopping men in their tracks.
On transfer deadline day, Southampton added giant Croatian defender Duje Caleta-Car to bolster their squad for the Premier League campaign ahead.
Waiting to join him on the South Coast is his stunning wife, who hails from Dubrovnik and studied law.
Adriana, 30, reportedly met the 6ft4in ace, who is said to have cost the Saints around £13m, in 2017 and began a relationship as his career at Red Bull Salzburg began taking shape.
She then followed him to Marseille, where she spent her time between the French city and her hometown.
They share a one-year-old son called Mauro.

Going the distance
Five years into their romance, Adriana – who admitted they have a long-distance relationship at times – revealed that they've still managed to keep their love alive over that time.
"Despite the fact that we have been living together for a long time, the romance has not been lost,"Adriana told Dubrovnik Daily.
"We don't know how either, I guess we both pay attention to the little things that make the other happy. However, I think I'm a bit more romantic. A woman is still a woman."

At the 2018 World Cup, Adriana joined Croatia's gorgeous Wags in cheering on their country to the final, where they were eventually beaten by France.
But before she became a footballers' wife – she had her own life too.
Forgetting a nine-to-five
In her early 20s, Adriana worked as a model.
Alongside photoshoots, she worked as an intern in a law office after graduating from the Faculty of Law in Split.
However, when she had Mauro – family life came first.
She said: "I never thought about my dream job, the only thing I want in life is to be satisfied and happy to go to work, and not to feel uncomfortable when I wake up in the morning, and to have time for my family in addition to my work, and not everything boils down to work, work and work."
That will give Adriana plenty of time to visit St Mary's and cheer Caleta-Car on. And what a welcome addition to our shores she will be.
