Before Adam Levine met Behati Prinsloo, his dating life often appeared on the news. He was once knowns as one of the biggest bachelors, but this changed in 2014 as he got married in 2014 and became a father two years later.
Being a dad is something that Levine has really embraced. It was also something that had “always been part of the plan” for his life, and he feels as though he was born to be a parent. He is hands-on and extremely dedicated to raising his girls (he doesn’t shy away from diaper duties either), and it’s clear that family is his No. 1 priority. Levine has spoken about the love he has for his two daughters on numerous occasions, and when fans are able to get a rare glimpse into his home life or see a paparazzi snap of the proud dad with his little ones, it doesn’t take a lot to make people swoon. Below are 20 of those photos.
20. ADAM LEVINE REALLY LOVES BEING A FATHER TO GIRLS (HE SAYS THEY ARE BETTER THAN BOYS)
Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo first became parents in 2016, two years after their marriage. Their first child was a daughter they named Dusty Rose, and in 2018, she would become a big sister to another girl, Gio Grace.
Levine loves being a father, but he especially loves that he is a father to two girls, even admitting that raising girls is better. “Girls are better than boys,” he said during an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “I didn’t think I was going to [love fathering daughters,] but I love it. I always knew it was going to be the way — I knew I was having girls.”
19. HIS WIFE HAS CELEBRATED HIM FOR BEING A FANTASTIC DAD
Adam Levine’s daughters may be the apple of his eye, but there is another woman who shares his heart, and that woman is his wife, Behati Prinsloo. The couple appears to be completely dedicated to each other, and Prinsloo feels that she couldn’t have chosen a better man to start a family with.
She shared these thoughts on social media ahead of Father’s Day in 2018. “Our girls are so lucky to call you dad and I’m so lucky to have you as a husband… and a friend,” she wrote, while sharing a photo of Levine and Gio Grace. “We love you. Life is better with you,” she added.
18. HE FEELS SO STRONGLY ABOUT BEING A PARENT THAT HE THINKS IT’S WHAT HE WAS BORN FOR
Most people feel as though they have a calling, something they were destined to achieve or be. For Adam Levine, that calling is fatherhood. Even before the birth of his first daughter, he shared with Entertainment Tonight that being a father was not only something he was “ready” for, it was something he was born to be.
“You’re born to be a parent, that’s what we’re here for, really,” he explained, adding that while everything else was great, “it’s not what we’re here for.” In the years that have followed, Levine’s comments with regards to his dedication and love for his children prove that he still believes his earlier statement.
17. THE FAMILY ROLE REALLY SUITS BEHATI AND ADAM
Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo’s lives have no doubt changed since becoming parents — Blake Shelton even joked to Entertainment Tonight that he was looking forward to Levine “actually having to wake up before noon or one o’clock for the first time in his life, you know, to go change a diaper.” But this change in their lifestyle is one that the couple has embraced, and being parents suits them.
In an interview with People, Prinsloo admitted that since becoming a mom she had experienced “sleep deprivation,” but later added, “It’s always worth it when you see her face smiling back at you.”
16. HIS LIFE HAS CHANGED SO MUCH THAT NOW, MINNIE MOUSE EVEN TRAVELS WITH HIM ON PRIVATE JETS
Everyone always tells expectant parents that their lives are going to change dramatically, but also that they will experience a completely new level of love. Behati Prinsloo summed up these feelings perfectly in an interview with People, saying, “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 Levine no doubt feels the same way, and instead of models and friends traveling on private jets with him these days, he now has a giant Minnie Mouse toy (which we can only assume belongs to one of his daughters).
15. HIS FAMILY IS HIS NO. 1 PRIORITY, AND ADAM LOVES WATCHING HIS KIDS GROW UP
Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine love speaking about their family, and they have the nicest things to say. According to People, Levine has stated, “Being a dad’s the most fun thing on the planet.”
And despite having achieved success in his profession, it seems that family is Levine’s first priority, and his wife feels the same way. “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,” she told People. “[Levine]’s such an incredible dad, and so excited to see her [their daughter] grow up. It’s so awesome.”
14. IT’S REALLY RARE FOR THEM TO SHARE A FAMILY PHOTO, BUT THEY ARE SO THANKFUL FOR THEIR LIVES
Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine may not be shy about sharing their love for their children and their family, and they have given multiple interviews about becoming parents, since 2016. But the couple is more reluctant to post photos of their home life, so when they do, it’s something that fans really cherish. This rare photo was posted by Prinsloo, who decided to caption it with one word that summed up her feelings: “Thankful.”
The photo shows the proud parents, both smiling broadly, pushing their daughters on a swing set, and although we cannot see the girl’s faces, we can see just how happy their parents are.
13. HE WANTS MORE KIDS, A LOT MORE (ENOUGH TO MAKE ANOTHER MAROON 5)
He’s now a father to two children, but if you think that Adam Levine is content with the size of his family, well, then you’d be wrong! He has previously told Ryan Seacrest he wanted to have “100 kids,” adding, “I want to have more kids than is socially responsible.”
Obviously, a 100 is an exaggeration, but Levine would love to have around five — he could form his own little band. During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (via People), he hinted that more kids are in his future. “At this rate, I think I’m going to definitely let my wife be in control of the timing of the next child,” he said. “We want, like, a lot. At least [five].”
12. HE THINKS BEING A PARENT IS A ‘BEAUTIFUL EXPERIENCE’
Becoming a father is something that has had a profound effect on Adam Levine, and although he may never get to become a father to 100 children, he is doing his best to raise the children he does have. It’s also been a learning curve, and he shared this in a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest (via Us Weekly), not long after Dusty Rose was born.
“I’ve been a parent for three weeks; what do I know? I don’t know anything, but it’s kind of part of the beauty of it, honestly,” he explained. “There are a lot of instincts, a lot of things that kind of kick in and switch on. It’s a beautiful experience.”
11. AND WHO SAYS MEN CAN’T MULTITASK? ADAM TAKES HIS KID WITH HIM ON COFFEE RUNS
There is a common misconception that men are not able to multitask, at least, not on the same level that women can. Well, if you want to find out the true answer to that question, simply ask new dads because, like Adam Levine, they are able to do it all. Just look at him here, including his daughter in his coffee run (and balancing both perfectly).
Levine is a really hands-on dad, and when it comes to parenting, he takes his role seriously. “As soon as I can be a parent at any time during the day I do it,” Levine told E! News, adding, “And that’s kind of like as a dad too, you gotta be there, that’s a big thing, being around all the time.”
10. HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A DAD MORE DEDICATED TO HIS DAUGHTER? HE’S TOTALLY IN LOVE
There is no denying that Adam Levine is dedicated to his children. He often speaks about them in the media, and he has been photographed with one, or both of his daughters, as he goes about his errands. But he also doesn’t have to parent alone, because he and his wife are what he likes to call the “A-Team.”
He explained his approach to parenting in an interview with E! News, telling the publication all about the A-Team and what they stand for. “A-Team has to be fresh, functional, relaxed and happy to deal with the B-Team, which is your children,” he said, adding that if they’re not ready for their children, then “we have problems, no one’s going to have any fun.”
9. ADAM IS SO PROUD TO BE A DAD THAT HE’S APPEARED IN A SUPER-CUTE PAMPERS COMMERCIAL
New parents experience a lot of changes, some are wonderful, others are less pleasant, like the lack of sleep, and the many times a day a diaper has to be changed. In an interview with People, Adam Levine’s wife said he is “an incredible dad” and “very hands-on.” But if you do not think that extends to diaper duty, then we refer you to the Pampers Super Bowl ad he was involved in, which featured Levine, and fellow singer and father, John Legend.
The adorable campaign celebrates fathers and shows two very high-profile dads tackling diaper duty (in a hilarious and adorable way). Levine even took to social media to mention how diaper duty was a “right of passage” for all dads.
8. HIS MISSION WAS TO GET HIS DAUGHTER’S FIRST WORD TO BE ‘DADA’
There are many milestones to celebrate when raising a child, and one of the earliest is when they first learn to speak. These first words bring great joy to parents, especially if that first word is in honor of them.
Most parents don’t really mind what their child’s first word is, but, of course, it would mean a lot of it was “Mama” or “Dada.” And Adam Levine was on a mission to ensure that his daughter Dusty Rose’s first word was going to be “Dada.” According to Entertainment Tonight, during his appearance on The Tonight Show, he told Jimmy Fallon, “I’ve been working Dada, like hard.” But there’s no word on whether Dusty actually did say “Dada” first.
7. FOR ADAM LEVINE, FATHERHOOD IS REALLY ‘FUN’ (AND JUST LOOK AT HIS SMILE)
In the same interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Adam Levine admitted that he was really enjoying being a dad. “[Fatherhood is] so fun. I do new stuff all the time, and it’s constantly entertaining. It’s the greatest thing in the world,” he said.
This is not the first time he has spoken about the joy that fatherhood has brought him, and his wife has also acknowledged how excited Levine has been about being a father. She told People, “It’s so exciting to see your partner — you don’t know how they’re going to be as a parent and you two together, and it’s amazing to see him really taking the role and loving it, especially with two girls.”
6. HE ALWAYS WANTED TO HAVE KIDS, AND IT WAS PART OF HIS PLAN
Not everyone envisions having children. Some would prefer not to have, for others, it sort of happens unexpectedly, and then there are those, like Adam Levine, who have always thought that being a parent was something that would one day be in the cards.
There was a time when Levine was considered one of the world’s most eligible bachelors, but his life has changed in many ways since marrying Behati Prinsloo. Not long after the birth of their first daughter in 2016, Levine told Jimmy Fallon (via Hola!) that being a dad had “always been part of the plan” and that he was incredibly happy now that it was a reality.
5. NOT ONLY IS ADAM A GREAT DAD, BUT HE ALSO HAS THE GREATEST WOMAN TO RAISE HIS CHILDREN WITH
Adam Levine may be a wonderful, hands-on father, who is dedicated to raising his daughters, but without Behati Prinsloo, this “beautiful experience,” as he calls it, would not have been a reality for Levine (at least, not in the same way).
Levine has publicly shown his appreciation for his wife in a social media post in honor of her 30th birthday, in 2018. Calling her his “queen” and a “legend,” Levine went on to say, “I wake up every morning thankful that it wasn’t all a dream. Here’s to a thousand more years. I love you…”
4. HE FEELS LIKE HE IS ONE OF THE LUCKIEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD
Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo are a team, and they are completely dedicated to raising their children. And to do this properly, they need to love and appreciate each other, and they really do!
When Levine received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, he used the speech as an opportunity to thank his wife. “I have a daughter, I have the most beautiful wife in the entire world,” he told People (via Yahoo Sports). “I am one of the luckiest people who has ever lived and it has nothing to do with me. It has to do with the people who love me the most.”
3. ADAM HAS CALLED HIS DAUGHTER HARD TO BELIEVE
When Adam Levine became a dad in 2016, he didn’t waste time in expressing his feelings of complete adoration for his daughter. He has spoken about how fun fatherhood has been, how he has embraced the experience, how he has the most incredible wife to share this journey with, and also, just how amazing his child is.
During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, when Dusty Rose was only a few months old, he told the host, Ellen Degeneres (via InStyle), that she was quite incredible. He went on the express his feelings, saying, “I’m so in love with her. It’s crazy.”
2. HIS WIFE MAKES HIM LAUGH SO MUCH, AND THEY HAVE SUCH A HAPPY HOUSEHOLD
Raising children in a positive environment is important, and while we cannot know everything that goes on in Adam Levine’s household, what we do know is that he and his wife get on extremely well. They have spoken publicly about their love for each other, they post social media tributes, and the photos that have been taken of them show them looking relaxed and happy.
But they also have a lot of fun together, and this is something Levine touched on when he posted a tribute to his wife on social media. “In just a few years we have laughed and loved harder than most,” he wrote in a 2018 post.
1. APPARENTLY, THIS IS WHAT ADAM LEVINE LOOKS LIKE AT HOME
We know a lot about Adam Levine as a father because he has been willing to share his thoughts in interviews. Fans want to know what he’s like at home, and he wants to tell the world how much he loves Behati Prinsloo, and his daughters. It would appear his life has changed significantly since having kids, but he has also reminded us all that he is just like every other parent.
He doesn’t always look amazing or get dressed up, and he doesn’t have to post photos from professional photo shoots — well, at least in this photo. In 2017, he shared this photo, which shows him wearing a hair net (or perhaps it’s a shower cap), and wearing a T-shirt with a smiling baby’s face on it, perfectly summing up his home life.
