Behati Prinsloo has 2 Kids and Almost Split From Her Husband – A Detailed Look at Adam Levine’s Wife

There is no doubt that being able to bounce back shortly after childbirth and walk on high-fashion runway shows is not a small achievement. Despite how daunting it is and almost impossible, that is what professional models do all the time, so it is little wonder that Namibian catwalk beauty, Behati Prinsloo, continues to impress fashion lovers with her hot body even after two kids.

Highly admired for her stunning looks, Behati is a top international model and one of the Angels of Victoria’s Secret. She is of African origin and was born in South Africa even though her nationality is Namibian. In the course of her career, she has appeared on the covers of big magazines all over the world and has also walked the runways of numerous famous brands including H&M. Her career has seen significant enhancements over the years, propelling her beyond modeling to become a known face in TV shows and music videos.

A Look at the Family Behati Prinsloo Hails From

Born on the 16th of May 1988, Behati is the only child of her parents. She comes from an Afrikaner family that lived in South Africa. Three years after she was birthed, the family moved back to Grootfontein, Namibia where the model spent her childhood.

Her father Louis Francois “Boet” Prinsloo is a church minister while her mother Magada runs a bread and breakfast lodging business. The family speaks Afrikaans as their native language but she received her education in English from Grootfontein Secondary School.

After Grade 9, however, she left to focus on modeling having caught an interest in it when she was discovered by a guy who wrote his number on a paper while she was vacating in Cape Town with her grandparents.

She Began Her Modelling Career With a Prada Gig

Records have it that her first job in the industry was just a shot of her feet, she pulled this off as a Prada, Miu Miu Exclusive. She went on to do her first-ever ad campaign for Marc by Marc Jacobs. Since then, Behati has become a respectable fashion influencer in the industry. Some of her feats so far include being the first Pink contract model and being named the 14th Sexiest Female model by models.com.

She currently models for Victoria’s Secret since joining the brand’s Angels in 2009. Behati Prinsloo is also the face of Australian swimwear brand, Seafolly for Summer 2012. The elite model has so far opened two of Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in succession. Also, she made history for walking nine Victora’s Secret Fashion Shows in a row, starting from 2007 to 2015.

Over the years, Behati has been a regular fixture in the front rows of big fashion brands’ runways, ranging from Nina Ricci to Nine West, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander Wang, Alexander McQueen, Calvin Klein, Givenchy, Christian Dior, Anna Sui, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Versace, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, and many others.

The supermodel has also appeared on many covers of top magazines including Vogue for different countries like Brasil, Turkey, Russia, Thailand, and much more. Likewise, she has been the face of Elle magazines for different countries as well as Marie Claire’s. Other magazines she has become a cover girl for include Telegraph, I-D magazine, V magazine, Russia magazine, 10 magazines, The Edit, Jalouse, So It Goes Magazine and L’Officiel Netherlands.

There is no doubt that Behati Prinsloo is one model many aspiring models look up to. She has done quite a lot of ad campaigns for H&M, Tommy Hilfiger, Juicy Couture Black Label, and many other popular brands.

The Model has also Thrived as an Actress

Outside the runways, the catwalk queen has spread her wings to the acting industry and has been landing more roles over the years. She guest-starred alongside fellow Victoria’s Secret Angels in an episode of CBS Hawaii Five-0 titled Ha awe Make Loa.

Her filmography now includes works like The City, Letters to Haiti, Fashion Police, Victoria’s Secret Swim Special, and Taylor Swift: The 1989 World Tour Live, a concert film. Disregarding that, she has appeared in several music videos for artists like Selena Gomez, The Virgins, and of course her husband’s Maroon 5.

The icing on the cake for her career is that she has designing skills and has designed for big brands. Some of her designs include a line of denim for THVM, accessories collection for Juicy Couture, and Behati Loves Pink swimsuit capsule collection for Victoria’s Secret.

Behati Prinsloo Met Adam Levin Through a Mutual Friend

From what we gathered, the Maroon 5 frontman was looking for someone who could pull off some action for a music video and the model was recommended for him by the mutual friend.

As Behati was described as a tomboy who would be up for some action, Adam emailed her and it marked the beginning of a friendship that morphed into a romance.

Even though Behati never got to play the role, she continued exchanging emails with Adam and according to her, they eventually fell in love over email. The model said it was love at first sight when they met a month later in LA. They had dinner, talked for hours, and their relationship was birthed.

But They Almost Didn’t Get Married

Prinsloo began dating the voice coach and Maroon 5 frontman in 2012. The duo suffered a slight break in 2013 but rekindled their love and got back together in the same year. Based on what the model disclosed, they broke up for two months after they became lovers. It was tough for them to say apart so they got back together.

Months later, Levin proposed to the top model and by early 2014 they started planning their wedding. The same year, the couple tied the knot in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; in front of many celebrity guests. Two years into their marriage, they welcomed their first bundle of joy, a daughter named Dusty Rose Levin. Currently, they are adoring parents to two lovely girls as Dusty has a sister named Gio Grace.

It has been easy for Behati to find a balance between her work and family life, thanks to her husband’s family. Adam was born and raised in LA, he has his whole family there and Behati’s kids hardly fell her absence when she is out for work.
