Namibia-born Victoria’s Secret model, Behati Prinsloo, is set to give her first birth soon and is said to be in her last days of her pregnancy. In an interview with Hollywoodtake sources say that Behati and Maroon 5 front man, Adam Levine, will welcome their little girl on September 20. Our Staff Reporter follows up the story from Windhoek.
Adam and the Namibian beauty tied the knot in July 2014 after becoming engaged one year prior. Then, this March, the couple confirmed they were expecting their first child. Although Levine hinted at the news on Instagram weeks prior to the announcement with a photo of a collection of Maroon 5 bibs, it wasn’t until late in March, following an Us Weekly news report, that he shared the first photo of his wife’s baby bump.
In one of Behati’s latest Instagram posts, the Victoria’s Secret model showcased her baby bump (and her feet) in the bathtub. A few months ago, she was seen with fellow pregnant South African model Candace Swanepoel. “Still can’t believe me and my African sis are expecting at the same time…So many good times together and so many more to come. LOVE YOU,” Behati wrote in the caption of the photo.
And while Behati and Levine are taking some parenting advice ahead of their little one’s arrival, they want to do things their own way. “When you are doing this for the first time, everybody loves to tell you what you should be doing,” Adam told Entertainment Tonight. “So, we’re kind of tuning a lot of it out and we’re just going to do it how we do it.”
Adam and Behati are also reportedly looking for a new home before due date. They recently put their New York City apartment on the market. And they have been looking for a bigger house in L.A.’s Pacific Palisades neighborhood to raise their family in. Prinsloo, meanwhile, recently told online magazine Obsev’s The Lowdown: “You know, I’ve always, since a little girl always wanted a family, a big family. I’m an only child so I wanted like, ten kids for sure.”
Behati was 15 when she was discovered by a fashion scout while on vacation in Cape Town, South Africa in 2005. She signed with the Storm modeling agency, and before the year was out she had modeled in Paris and London and appeared in Vogue magazine in Italy. Round-faced, red-cheeked, hazel-eyed and athletic, Behati was young enough to pose as a lip-chewing schoolgirl in early advertisements before moving on to more mature roles as she posed for brands ranging from Chanel and Hugo Boss to Juicy Couture fragrance. She began modeling for Victoria’s Secret in 2007, becoming in particular the face of the company’s “Pink” line of casual clothing for many years. She married Adam in 2014. Behatu was born on May 16 in 1989 in Grootfontein, a small town in the Otjozondjupa region, Namibia, to church minister Boet and bed-and-breakfast provider, Magda.
Adam is a Grammy Award-winner frontman and is known for such pop hits as “This Love” and “Moves like Jagger.” He has also appeared as a judge/coach on The Voice. Compiled from/Sources: hellomagazine.com; hollywoodtake.com; dailymail.com; eonline.com
