Adam Levine Marries Behati Prinsloo
Levine and Prinsloo began their romance a few months after the Maroon 5 front man split from his Victoria’s Secret Angel ex, Anne Vyalitsyna. After a brief split in 2013, Levine and Prinsloo got back together and were quickly engaged. The rest, as they say, is history.
Who Is Behati Prinsloo?
Prinsloo, 25, became a Victoria’s Secret Angel before she met Levine in 2009. Originally from a small town in Namibia, Prinsloo, the daughter of a minister, was discovered while visiting her grandparents in Cape Town. One summer, she signed with Storm founder Sarah Doukas, worked in Cape Town as a model and then left South Africa for London at the age of 16, where she lived in model apartments.
“Girls are the dirtiest people ever. For the most part the flats would be empty. But then there would be older girls – and I was like sixteen – who would bring their boyfriends home, which was strictly not allowed, and I would hear everything. Or I’d wake up in the morning and there would be like a man in his underwear on the couch. It was awful,” Prinsloo told Fashionista in 2009.
By 2009, Prinsloo had moved to New York City and earned herself a contract with Victoria’s Secret. At the time, Prinsloo dated fellow model Jamie Strachan and, when she wasn’t working for Victoria’s Secret, she walked the runways of Fashion Week for designers like Marc Jacobs and Zac Posen.
The model, who describes her style as “feminine, a little rock ’n roll, a little downtown," also has a hairless cat named Gollum, and was known early in her career for making funny YouTube videos with her model friend Coco Rocha.
