In true rock-star fashion, Adam Levine married a Victoria’s Secret model.
An Angel for the coveted lingerie brand, Behati Prinsloo became the Maroon 5 frontman’s bride in July.
Here’s what you need to know about the newlyweds’ love story.
1. She Made Him Believe in Marriage
They started dating in May of 2012 and tied the knot in July of 2014 at Flora Farms in Los Cabos, Mexico.
In an interview with Jay Leno, shown above, he said:
Famous last words: ‘I’ll never get married.’ You know, I still don’t think you have to get married, unless you meet someone that makes you want to marry them. And then you marry them and it’s wonderful.
2. He Doesn’t Date Models
Although he dated three Victoria’s Secret models in five years, he claims he doesn’t care about their work at all.
Levine actually dated model Anne Vyalitsyna for two years and split with her right before he took up with Prinsloo.
“Behati always had a crush on Adam. And she was a little jealous of Anne,” an insider told Us Weekly.
He told GQ that professions don’t matter when it comes to dating:
I don’t date what the person does. I date the f**king person. You know what I mean? I could have been a zitty teenager and walked into a Tower Records, and we would have talked about Pearl Jam, and we would have fallen in love when we were 15. And that’s when you know. It’s like, oh, my God, game over.
3. They Briefly Split
Their short breakup gave Levine time to date another model, Nina Agdal. However, he missed Prinsloo too much to be without her.
An insider told Us, “After Adam broke up with Behati, he couldn’t stop thinking about her. He realized he really loved her and wanted to be with her.”

4. Adam Posted This Honeymoon Selfie
“There is a strong situation going on here,” was the caption.
The couple made the news, with the Daily Mail saying, “honeymoon’s over,” when Levine’s Mercedes-Benz ran out of gas on Sunset Strip.
TMZ reported that news in early August.
5. He Proposed on Both Knees
On the Live With Kelly and Michael segment below, he revealed how he proposed- by getting down on both knees.
It doesn’t matter how certain you think you are, you still get down on that knee and you just get woozy and you’re like, ‘I’m doing this, oh my God.’ You can’t be confident about it! It’s almost like it’s impossible — I’m a confident person, but I got on that knee and everything changed immediately. I lost my equilibrium…I had to get on the other one!
He continued, saying, “But the one thing I will say is that, at one point, I was like, ‘Look — I got on both knees!’ And it didn’t sound charming. Both knees. She was like, ‘What?’ and I was like, ‘Never mind that!’”
