Adam Levine, Maroon 5 frontman and ‘The Voice’ judge, with his Namibian Victoria’s Secret model wife, Behati Prinsloo, is giving us all a big case of relationship envy. They have been happily married for almost four years now. The 28-year-old supermodel and her hubby, who is 10 years her senior, met when Adam was performing at the 2011 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. The two started dating in 2012 just off the heels of a bad breakup since Adam was dating another ‘Angel’. The dynamic duo officially tied the knot in a super-secret Los Cabos, Mexico wedding in 2014 where celebrity guests included Candice Swanepoel and Erin Heatherton.
They welcomed the birth of their second child, less than a year-and-a-half after the birth of their first. There appears to be no trouble in paradise for this happy couple who love spending time with each other and their two baby girls, Dusty Rose and Geo Grace. Adam reportedly has even considered taking some time off from ‘The Voice’ to be able to spend even more time with his wife and girls. Unlike many of today’s celebrity couples who want to end their marriage and quickly head to their divorce lawyers, Adam and Behati are headed in a completely opposite direction and here are 15 reasons why.
15 You Really Have To Be Committed To Get Matching Tattoos
I guess if you have a pretty traditional wedding ceremony you have to follow it up with something a little more noteworthy to memorialize the special occasion. What would be more fitting than matching tattoos? The Victoria’s Secret model in an interview with Entertainment Tonight told them that the tattoos that both she and Adam both have read,"you're so cool, you're so cool, you're so cool" and it is inked on her side and on Adam’s right bicep.
Behati’s side tattoo is not the only one she and Adam have in common. They have ring finger tattoos and her's consists of three dots. Bahati also said, "It means being one with the earth. And I just wanted it on my ring finger. When I take it off, it's still there. I wanted a ring, but everybody does the ring, so I did three dots."
14 He Indulges Her In Little Ways That Count Big Time
Just a few weeks ago, and days before the arrival of their second child, Adam had a very special gift for his wife on Valentine’s Day. The couple celebrated quietly at home and Adam shared a cute photo of his supermodel wife boasting her baby bump. Sprawled out on a comfy bed lying with her leopard print blanket and a heart-shaped box full of yummy chocolates, Behati had a bit of a mischievous look on her face and Adam wrote in the caption, “My maniac.”
Behati also added her own adorable Instagram post a few months before, that showed their beautiful daughter Dusty standing with her daddy, both with no clothes on and their backs turned towards the camera with their behinds covered up with a peach emoji. Behati’s caption reads, “Same butt different”. What an indulgent husband Adam she can take that shot and post it.
13 He Gives His Family Constant Praise
Last year Adam received his star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame and the two most important people in the world to him were right by his side. The three of them made a very stylish family debut at the ceremony and it was quite the buzz for some time. Adam made a very touching speech crediting the ‘girls’ in his life for his success and said, “I have a daughter. I have the most beautiful wife in the entire world. I am one of the luckiest people who’s ever lived and it has nothing to do with me. It has to do with the people who love me the most and so, I thank all of those people.” Then while appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Adam wanted the whole world to know what a proud father and husband he is and that he takes the role as both very seriously. He said, “Dusty’s so unbelievable. I’m so in love with her. It’s great.”
12 He Wants To Be A Family Man In A Duggar-Kind-Of Way
After being married for only just one month, Adam did an interview with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show and told him that he wanted to have lots of kids with his gorgeous new wife. He said, "We’re definitely going to do it," when asked if kids were a possibility on the horizon. He jokingly added, "I want to have 100 kids. I want to have more kids than would be socially responsible. I don’t know when we’re going to do it. We can’t do it right now. I think it’s absolutely in the works for some future date." Behati also told Net-A-Porter’s The Edit, even before they were married, that she and Adam had “definite” plans to have kids, so they were certainly on the same page in that regard. Fast forward to today and Adam and Behati are on a roll with already two kids under their belt in just 4 years. Watch out Duggars!
11 Their Daughters Dusty & Geo Will Have A Sweet Life
The experience of being new parents for the first time together, then being parents again for the second time has made the couple extremely happy and feeling very blessed. With the birth of their two beautiful baby girls, there is no doubt that they will be loved!
People asked Behati what was surprising to her about becoming a mom and she said, “I love Adam, and when you get married and you fall in love with someone, you think that there’s no greater love than that love. And then you have a baby, and it’s just next-level love.” Adam told them, “It’s so fun. I do new stuff all the time. It’s constantly entertaining. It’s the greatest thing in the world.” There is no doubt that these little girls will grow up being loved and adorned by their parents and will most certainly have the world as their oyster.
10 Behati Is Adam’s ‘True Love’
I guess since her name has too many letters in it, Adam was forced to just get the two four-letter words ‘True Love’ put onto his knuckles to show Behati just how permanent his feelings are for her. Both are no strangers to showing how much they love each other by getting tattoos that are symbolic to them, but Adam took it up a notch with his inked-up knuckles.
On model mom Behati’s Instagram page she posted a sweet black and white photo capturing Adam holding his fists close together to reveal the body art across his knuckles reading “True Love”. She captioned the shot “The truest..." Again, Adam upped the ante because when he debuted his new art for the first time to his Instagram followers he posted a shot of his hands grabbing his wife’s bare bottom and captioned it with, “It’s worth holding onto."
9 They Make The Time To Enjoy Each Other's Company
From sitting court side at the Staples Center and cheering on the Los Angeles Lakers, to stepping out together for a romantic baby free lunch date at the exclusive Little Beach House in Malibu, California, Adam and Behati make sure to find a way to spend some quality time together. They have found a balance in their relationship for making things work out just right. They both realize that life cannot be all work and have set time aside to work together against all the chaos of the world. By taking the time to have a ‘date night’ they get to focus on connecting with each other and strengthen their teammate-like partnership. They are both proactive in managing the time they spend on each other and being a family unit.
8 She Supports His Career
Going out on a cold winter New York night to watch her husband perform at a Maroon 5 concert in Madison Square Garden is only one of the ways the beautiful Victoria’s Secret Angel supports her man. With style not being one of her highest goals for the evening, she went out completely makeup free, with her hair a bit disheveled, donning a pair of iconic grunge Dr. Martens boots. Behati braved the elements to stand by her man as she left the hotel and hopped into a town car to head out for the concert.
She also gave Adam the idea for his album cover ‘Red Pill Blues’ because according to James Valentine, the band’s lead guitarist, “He just trades Snaps with his wife all day when we’re out on tour. They send each other those funny face filters, so just through that he had the idea and said hey, this would actually be a funny record cover.”
7 He’s An ‘Angel’ For Supporting Her Career
It must be extremely difficult for Adam to have to attend all of those Victoria’s Secret Fashion shows and sit in the front row and be up close and personal to all those Angels that go strutting by. I’m pretty sure that every man on the planet would love to be in his shoes when he needs to support his wife by being present at the show front row and center. Seriously though, at one show he did give her a standing ovation and blew kisses to her as she walked down the catwalk in her white wings. Behati has been in nine consecutive VS Fashion shows starting from 2007 all the way up to 2015. She has had to skip the last two years because of the births of her children but she is still there in spirit and Adam is right by her side.
6 They Are Competitive With Each Other
When you have a beautifully hot mom like Behati Prinsloo and a gorgeously hot dad like Adam Levine the only possibility for Dusty Rose Levine’s first word to be is “hot” right? Of course! The genetically blessed little girl has created a bit of a competition amongst her parents as to what her first word will actually be. Adam told Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show that Behati wants Dusty Rose to say “mama” first and Adam wants her to say “dada”. Adam added, “I've been working 'dada' hard. You work on it really hard and you slip it into every single thing you say. Like, if she's being cute, you're like, 'Oh, my God! Look at how cute you are! Dada! We've gotten some dada-esque sounds, but nothing concrete. My wife is working 'mama,' so it's like, it's a battle to the finish."
5 Learning The Whole Parenthood Thing Together
Both Behati and Adam got to experience the whole first-time parenthood thing with the birth of their first child Dusty Rose, and now they get to do it again for a second-time with their newborn daughter Geo. Not knowing everything right off the bat was something they had to contend with, but now they are on the path to becoming seasoned veterans. Adam told People, "I don't know anything, but it's kind of part of the beauty of it, honestly. There are a lot of instincts, a lot of things that kind of kick in and switch on. It's a beautiful experience." On how Adam is as a dad, Behati also told them, “I think for both of us, we’re just so obsessed with being a family and having a family — seeing this next step in our life. He’s such an incredible dad. It’s so awesome.”
4 She Wouldn’t Want To Return That Ring
‘Vintage beauty for a modern beauty’ is probably what Adam was thinking when he decided to propose and give his wife to be an engagement ring. The incredible ring is truly vintage and dates back to the 1930’s. It has a beautiful round cut center diamond held in place by four prongs and boasts intricate scrollwork on the band. The delicate setting showcases the diamond beautifully and the gallery being so elevated allows for maximum sparkle value. Made of white gold with the scrolled design adds an incredible amount of interest to this piece. Celebrity jewelry analysis experts (yup you read that right) have described Behati’s ring as being romantic, classic and incredibly beautiful. They also state that it is very, very special even though it is much smaller than the average piece of Hollywood jewelry because it is a one-of-a-kind piece dating back to the 1930’s. The diamond is estimated to be a just over a carat but the exact weight has not been confirmed.
3 They Have Undeniable Chemistry Together
A psychologist, Laurie Betito, made a statement about arranged marriages working because "a spark can build based on what you have in common. You can grow into love, but you grow out of lust." Well, Behati and Adam don’t really need to worry too much about building a spark, instead, they should worry about putting out the fire. They have undeniable chemistry and are always seen being very affectionate towards each other whether it be in public or private places. They are constantly sharing photos on Instagram or Snapchat proving they just can’t keep their hands off each other. And if the couple is not sharing the photos with their millions of followers, the paparazzi always seem to capture an image of the lovebirds doing what they do best - loving each other.
2 They Are Both Successful And Career Oriented
Behati’s impressive modelling career is proof that she has a hard work ethic and an incredible drive. It only makes sense that the 28-year-old mom has a net worth of $3 million dollars, which is so impressive for someone who is so young and has worked her way up to the top, especially since coming from a modest upbringing. With her career being a bit on hold at the moment, and being a mom on the forefront, the world is Behati’s oyster.
And as for Adam, as of March 2017, he has a net worth of $60 million dollars. We all know Adam has an incredible drive and a hard work ethic as well, which is why his net worth is so sky-high. With his music career and being on ‘The Voice’ since its debut, Adam has accomplished what most people only dream of. With this combination of super-stardom, the couple can only continue to grow as a super-pair.
1 They Both Love To Post On Social Media
Adam and Behati both love to post about their love for life and each other on their social media sites. The number of people who follow them on these various sites is nothing short of staggering. Adam, has almost 11 million followers on Instagram, almost 9 million on Twitter, and a mind-blowing 35 million for ‘Maroon Five’ on Facebook. Behati has far fewer than Adam, but her numbers are still quite impressive. She has more than 5 million on Instagram, and a bit more than half a million each on Twitter and Facebook.
With the reach they have from all of their followers you can see why they love to post on their social media sites to inform everyone of their love for each other.
