Who is Adam Levine’s wife?

When you’ve won multiple Grammys, tallied billions of views on YouTube, and performed at the Super Bowl halftime show, it’s safe to say you’re a superstar. Such is the case for Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine, who can get a single song stuck in your head with just the mention of one of his songs. If you’re now humming “Sugar,” “Girls Like You,” or “Moves Like Jagger,” we’re sorry, not sorry. 

This Sexiest Man Alive might be known for his full-body tattoos, rock star personality, and signature falsetto notes, but he was also one of the original coaches on NBC’s The Voice, is currently an executive producer for NBC’s Songland, and, most importantly, he’s a family man to his wife and two daughters. 

Levine was born and raised in the City of Angels (aka Los Angeles, California) so it only makes sense that he eventually married an Angel of his own. The story of how he met his wife is almost as noteworthy as their individual careers. It might even sound like something you saw on the Hallmark Channel.

Levine’s wife is none other than Behati Prinsloo, the Victoria Secret’s fashion model from Namibia, South Africa. She’s known for her work as the face of the Victoria’s Secret “Pink” campaign and perhaps most notably as an Angel for the brand since 2009. Her illustrious career began with Prada and she has since walked runways for brands like Versace, Alexander McQueen, and Alexander Wang, to name a few. If that wasn’t enough, she’s also walked nine consecutive runways for the Victoria Secret’s Fashion Shows, and that was all before she was 30.

Somehow, in addition to her packed work schedule, Prinsloo found a way to squeeze in a love life. How she met the Maroon 5 lead singer definitely resembles something out of a modern-day Hallmark movie.

It was love at first sight ⏤ well, email. 

In need of an actress for his newest music video, “Girls Like You,” Levine was put in touch with Prinsloo through a mutual friend. The two started talking over email, and as Prinsloo put it, “It was such a natural correspondence that we kind of fell in love over email.”

The Victoria’s Secret model didn’t end up doing the “Girls Like You” music video, but she did fly out to Los Angeles for a job, and, while there, met up with the Maroon 5 lead singer. “It was love at first sight, it was crazy,” she said. Like all good love stories, though, it wasn’t all smooth sailing. The two broke up for a couple of months, but naturally realized the error of their ways and got back together shortly thereafter. 

The subsequent two years saw them get engaged, married, and then pregnant. They welcomed their first daughter, Dusty Rose, in 2016, and then their second daughter, Gio Grace, in 2018. “It was a wild ride!” Prinsloo said. 

It makes sense why, in 2019, Levine made the decision to leave The Voice after 16 seasons as a coach and Prinsloo took a three-year break from work. Now that their kids are older, though, and they can devote more attention to their careers, they’ve added their names to the list of celebrities investing in tequila. In association with the Real family, Levine and Prinsloo have developed Calirosa Tequila.

If their past is any indication of what they’re capable of, who knows what the happy couple will achieve next.
