Read on for the facts on Behati Prinsloo, her rocky road to the altar with The Voice judge Adam Levine and more.
1. Prinsloo Totally Changed Levine’s Views on Marriage
When Adam Levine proposed to Behati Prinsloo, he got down on both knees. He revealed:
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!
Levine never really believed in marriage, but, between Behati and growing up, he has a whole new perspective. The two tied the knot over the summer and now Levine can’t stop saying the word “wife.” He told Ellen DeGeneres:
I never really thought I would adore it. It’s so trippy. I’m a child. How did this happen? I use that word [wife] right now a lot. I say it for no reason. I say it a lot — ‘Wife wife wife,’ I love it. I even changed her number in my phone to ‘Wife.’
At the couple’s wedding, Prinsloo donned a blush pink Marchesa dress and Hollywood Life writes:
The model selected a custom-made, blush pink creation for the nuptials, which took place on July 19 at Flora Farms in Los Cabos, Mexico, in front of their families and their famous friends.
Celebrities including model Candice Swanepoel, Jason Segel, and Jonah Hill were guests. Guitarist James Valentine performed at the ceremony.

3. Her Father Is a Minister
Prinsloo was born in Grootfontein, South-West Africa, which is now known as Namibia. Her father, Boet, was actually a church minister and still is today. Meanwhile, her mother runs a bed and breakfast. She grew up speaking Afrikaans and was educated in the English language. When Levine wanted to propose to Prinsloo, he stayed traditional and asked her father for permission. Levine revealed to Ryan Seacrest:
I did ask his permission. I don’t want to talk about it, you know how I am, but yes, of course I did. I had to. And it was extremely nerve-wracking.
4. Prinsloo Is an Angel
You may have seen Behati Prinsloo walking down the runway as an angel for Victoria’s Secret at their epic fashion show. In 2008, she became the face of the Victoria’s Secret sub-brand Pink and later became a Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2009. This past year, when Prinsloo walked the catwalk, a giddy Adam Levine couldn’t sit still in his seat over the excitement he had watching his woman on the runway. At one point, Prinsloo even blew a kiss to her love.
In order to maintain her model figure, Prinsloo participates in water games, swimming, and tries to keep a 1400 calorie organic diet.
5. Before Getting Married, Prinsloo and Levine Briefly Called It Quits
Prior to tying the knot and getting engaged, Prinsloo and Levine broke up a couple times. While apart, Levine actually dated another model – Nina Agdal, who he reportedly broke up with via text message. During his first break-up with Prinsloo, Levine is reported to have dated model Amanda Setton for about about two months starting March 2013. When they split, Levine allegedly rekindled his romance with Prinsloo, but ended it for the second time in May 2013. That’s when he dated Agdal.
Reportedly, Levine missed Prinsloo too much to be without her and he realized she was the one for him.
