Who is Adam Levine’s Wife, Behati Prinsloo?

Adam Levine has been a household name for years. Not only is he a chart-topping artist with his band Maroon 5, but he is also a host on the popular show, The Voice.

As he took the Super Bowl stage on Sunday and performed much of his show shirtless, fans looked at the singer and wondered if he was in a relationship.

Sorry, ladies. Not only is Levine taken, but he’s married.

To who, you might ask? Well, Victoria Secret model Behati Prinsloo.


Prinsloo was born on May 16, 1989 in Grootfontein, Namibia. If you’ve never heard of Grootfontein, don’t worry, Prinsloo says its a very small town.

“My dad’s a minister and my mom runs a bed and breakfast,” she told
 Fashionista in 2009 of her hometown and growing up there. “I’m an only child and pretty much did kid stuff, gymnastics, track, riding, field hockey. I hung out on my friend’s farm a lot.”

Unlike lots of models, Prinsloo wasn’t actually trying to break into the field. In fact, she had to be discovered not once, but twice, before she actually got serious about it.

The first time she was noticed was when she was on vacation with her grandparents after a day at church. When she returned home, she spoke to her family about the offer but ultimately decided not to do anything about it.

When she was 16, she was discovered by Storm Management modeling agency founder Sarah Doukas while on vacation in Cape Town, South Africa.

People meet their significant others in a number of ways these days. From Tinder to sliding in each other’s dm’s on social media, the technological age has made it extremely easy to connect.

With so many ways to meet, it’s actually strange to think that this influencer couple would do so over something as professional as email.

But that is exactly what happened.

On Watch What Happens Live, Prinsloo said that Levine first got her information through a friend when he was looking for a model to be in one of his videos. She didn’t end up taking the job but she and the singer continued emailing for weeks.

When she went to L.A. they decided to go on a date and had an instant connection.

“It was kind of love at first sight,” she said on the show.

After that first date, the couple went to their first event together, the GQ Gentlemen’s Ball in 2012.

Levine and Prinsloo’s relationship seemed to be going well until May of 2013 when reports started circulating that Levine had broken up with the model and moved on to someone else. Levine reportedly began dating supermodel Nina Agdal shortly after he and Prinsloo called it quits.

“Behati was in and out, but they finally ended it,” an insider told US Weekly. “It wasn’t an abrupt ending.”

Just a few months later, Levine broke up with his new girlfriend and proposed to Prinsloo.

He realized he really does love her and she was the one,” a source close to Levine told the outlet. “They are in love.”

The couple was married in Los Cabos, Mexico in July of 2014. They now have two children together, Dusty Rose and Gio Grace.
