It is often big, big news when it’s revealed that a celebrity is expecting a baby – obviously.
And how about if that celebrity is a famous super model… and her husband is a famous singer and TV personality?
On top of this, what if both he and she share candid shots with cute captions about each other and their growing family?
It makes for a lot of follows, a lot of likes, a large fan base, and plenty of times in the news.
In case you aren’t yet privy to all the details, as reported by USMagazine.com, “The pair, who began dating in June 2012, made their red-carpet debut as a couple the at the GQ Gentlemen’s Ball in NYC in October same year. The duo tied the knot two years later.”
Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine “have been married since 2014,” the site continues, and “welcomed their first child, daughter Dusty, in September 2016.” Their second, Gio, was born just a few months ago.
“I’ve always wanted a family, since I was a little girl, a big family. I’m an only child, so I wanted like 10 kids … for sure,” the model reportedly shared with Net-a-Porter in July 2014.
Now the world gets to watch as the famous family grows.
“I have a daughter, I have the most beautiful wife in the entire world. I am one of the luckiest people who’s ever lived, and it has nothing to do with me,” Levine said during a past public appearance.
The famous musician and dad even told Ryan Seacrest at one point, “We’re definitely going to do it. … I want to have 100 kids. I want to have more kids than would be socially responsible.”
With all this recent excitement and plenty of Instagram posts about it, Behati has gotten the Internet talking plenty of times. Here are 15 of them!
15 Pumping & Dumping At Coachella
This year’s Coachella festival saw the model posting a picture of herself that sparked quite a reaction.
“Behati Prinsloo has been mom-shamed after pumping her breast milk at Coachella and throwing it away.
The model, 28, drew criticism when she shared a snap of herself on her Instagram Story with a breast pump while at the desert festival on Friday.”
They continued, “Prinsloo, who shares two daughters with husband Adam Levine, is seen grinning at the camera in the picture as she explains she’s disposing of her breast milk while away from her two-month-old daughter Gio Grace.”
The pic was captioned, “#pumpanddump. More like cowchella lol [laugh out loud] Jamiroquai was soooo worth the pump and dump.” Canoe.com explains that she was “referencing the British funk band performing.”
The site continues, “Followers were quick to criticize the model for throwing away her breast milk.”
One commenter added, “No need to dump! Don’t waste that liquid gold! Very little alcohol gets into breast milk. Nurse away mama!”
Another commenter posted, “Why don’t you just breastfeed your baby?” Yet another decided to add, “Why dump?! Most medications are safe, and as long as you’re not sloppy drunk, your milk is good!!!”
Canoe.com also noted that fellow model Brooklyn Decker, age 31, had something else to add: “Same. Right now. Same.”
The site then noted that Behati Prinsloo and her husband, Levine, had just expanded their family by welcoming their second daughter, named Gio (many sources, including that one, misspell the name as Geo) Grace, in February. “They also have 19-month-old Dusty,” the site said.
The incident was widely reported on various parenting and celebrity new sites.
14 ‘Slender’ Post-Baby Stroll
Apparently, how a woman appears when she goes out in public after giving birth is the stuff of major news, specifically how “slender” she appears to onlookers.
Just recently, on May 7, 2018, DailyMail.com published, “They are the proud parents to children Dusty Rose and Gio. And model Behati Prinsloo and her husband Adam Levine seem to be loving the role. Over the weekend the power couple looked happy to be taking their eldest child Dusty, aged one, for a stroll in Los Angeles.”
The site continued, “Prinsloo looked slender after having welcomed Gio only two months ago. Behati looked very trim in her sweet summer dress that had thin straps and ended at the knee. She added flip flops for a very casual beach style. And the Victoria's Secret model pulled her hair up into a casual updo with little makeup on.
“Adam was just as relaxed in a Nike T-shirt and shorts with colorful sneakers. He held onto a coffee as his wife pushed the stroller. They also seemed to be with a male friend who wore black.”
Does this put quite an emphasis on how a woman looks soon after giving birth to a child?
The model has frequently posted images of herself on Instagram wearing swimsuits and baring her midsection, both before and after the birth of her babies.
13 Hubs Wants A Family Band
Even whether or not the model and her famous hubs are even thinking about having another baby is the stuff of entire articles on major news sites.
The smallest comment can spark an entire discussion.
On May 7, 2018, People.com reported, “Adam Levine is letting his wife Behati Prinsloo take the reins in their family’s expansion. On Monday, the Maroon 5 rocker visited Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime talk show to chat about his upcoming tour, plus give a few sweet details about the spouses’ life with their daughters Gio Grace, 11 weeks, and Dusty Rose, 19 months.”
Levine reportedly said,
“At this rate, I think I’m going to definitely let my wife be in control of the timing of the next child. … We want, like, a lot. At least [five].”
DeGeneres then reportedly joked, “Like Maroon 5.”
Levine then replied, “Maroon 5. We have to have a band of children.” People.com reported that he kidded “that the more little ones they have, the more it’s an ‘insurance policy for your future.’”
The site continued, “Dusty is already a huge fan of her ‘so cute’ baby sister. As her dad explains of his older daughter, ‘She’s obsessed with Gio. Every morning when she wakes up, the first thing she says is, “Gio, Gio, Gio, Gio!” And runs into her room. It’s really cute,’ adds The Voice coach. ‘Totally in love with her. She’s a little rough with her ’cause she doesn’t understand [being gentler] yet, so she’ll get in her face and do crazy stuff.’ Admits the father of two, ‘But it’s just so much fun. Being a dad’s the most fun thing on the planet.’”
12 Suiting Up 2 Weeks Postpartum

Guess what else is major news? When the model posts a picture wearing… A BATHING SUIT!
People.com covered this one thusly:
“Two weeks after the birth of her second daughter, Behati Prinsloo is back in a bathing suit.
The Victoria’s Secret Angel, 28, showed off her post-baby body in a black and white one-piece for a selfie video on her Instagram Story Thursday.
“Prinsloo posed in her bathroom, turning to show off the one piece and her physique from the front and side. She and husband Adam Levine announced the Feb. 15 arrival of their baby, Gio Grace Levine, six days later on Feb. 21. Gio is the couple’s second daughter as they are also parents to 16-month-old daughter Dusty Rose, whom they welcomed in September 2016.
“The model has used her social media to announce all her big news about the baby as she shared the first photo of Gio Grace six days on Instagram and previously announced her pregnancy back in September.
“Prinsloo has also used social media to give fans updates on her baby bumps and to share special moments after her children’s arrivals. With two babies under the age of 2, the model told PEOPLE about the most surprising aspect of being a mom.”
She reportedly told the mag, “I think the fact that you could love a person more than you ever thought. … 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.”
USMagazine.com noted the details, too: “She went without makeup and kept her blonde locks up in a ponytail.”
11 Bares Her Bump Before The Birth
Do you know of any people in your own life who have entire news articles written about them because they – get this – posted a picture of themselves pregnant with a big of bump showing?
I still laugh at the Friends plot involving Rachel insisting on wearing a belly-baring tank while pregnant and being more than a little irked with Ross at suggesting that she cover up before leaving the house.
USMagazine.com had this to say about Behati posting the picture in question: “Some chocolates from her sweet! Adam Levine treated Behati Prinsloo while celebrating Valentine’s Day as they continue to await the arrival of their second baby girl. The Maroon 5 frontman, 38, shared an adorable pic of pregnant Prinsloo, 28, showing off her bare baby bump in bed. ‘My maniac,’ he captioned via Instagram, along with several heart emojis.”
The celebrity news site continued, “The model adorably grinned as she sprawled out next to a box of chocolates. She kept comfy in a white top, black sweatpants and stayed warm with a leopard-print blanket. The couple — who are already parents of 16-month-old daughter Dusty Rose — announced in September 2017 that they are expanding their family. And according to Levine, Prinsloo is about to give birth at any moment.”
The site reported that Levine had said, “Very, very, very soon, like any minute now. Well, not any minute now, but very close,” when he recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
The baby watch was on!
10 Bares Her Bump In Beverly Hills
Wearing a T-shirt that exposes a bit of skin is also enough to get news sites and followers, alike, chatting away about the famous model and mother.
USMagazine.com reported on October 3, 2017, that Behati Prinsloo “flaunted her bare baby bump while spending time at the Beverly Hills farmers market on Sunday, October 1. The South African model, 28, cozied up in army green sweatpants and a loose-fitting white T-shirt while shopping by herself. Pinsloo also sported black shades and a simple crossbody bag as she strolled through the outdoor market.”
The site noted the details of her personal life at the time: “the Victoria’s Secret Angel is pregnant and expecting her second child with husband Adam Levine. The Namibia native announced the news via Instagram in September.”
They also note that she “slicked her hair back into a high ponytail” as she “flaunted her small pregnancy tummy at the market,” and “was seen buying freshly-squeezed orange juice, Kombucha juice, and organic steaks during her weekend outing. Prinsloo’s baby bump peeked through her top as she glanced around the market. The former PINK model beamed and wore multicolored socks… Prinsloo sipped on orange juice and carried shopping bags as she roamed about.”

You better believe the Internet was abuzz with the big news that the model and her famous guy were expecting a second child.
She took to Instagram to make the important announcement, including a picture of herself showing some serious skin.
USMagazine.com reported in September 2017, “Her family is growing! Behati Prinsloo is pregnant and expecting her second child with her husband, Adam Levine. The model announced the news on Instagram on Wednesday, September 13. In the photo, Prinsloo poses in a bikini, showing off her growing bump. She captioned the shot: ‘ROUND 2…..’”
The celebrity news site went on, “Prinsloo, 28, and Levine, 38 — who have been married since 2014 — welcomed their first child, a daughter, Dusty, in September 2016. And since welcoming their new family member, The Voice judge can’t help but gush. In November, the Maroon 5 frontman shared a sweet family photo with the SK-II spokeswoman and their little girl while taking a stroll on the beach. ‘Everything I need is right here,’ Levine captioned the adorable Instagram snap. ‘(Beach optional).’”
The site said,
“To some, Behati’s second pregnancy will not come as a surprise. Back in July 2014, the South Africa native spoke openly to Net-a-Porter of her desire to have a big family.
‘I’ve always wanted a family since I was a little girl, a big family,’ she said at the time. ‘I’m an only child so I wanted like 10 kids…for sure.’”
8 Hawking Skincare Products
Especially in the age of the Instafamous, sometimes, getting the Internet talking is exactly the intent. Okay, probably a lot of the time.
But especially if you’re a famous celebrity – who’s sponsored.
In a piece that seemed to pretty much be an add itself, USMagazine.com reported, “Dull skin got you down? Cheer up! Even if you’ve had a summer filled with busy days, exhausting travel and perhaps just a tad too much sun, you can take control of your complexion if you follow Behati Prinsloo’s advice.”
The piece continues, “The 28-year-old Namibian supermodel just signed on to be part of skincare brand SK-II’s next big media campaign, documenting her skin transformation journey as she rejoins the entertainment world after having baby Dusty Rose almost a year ago with rocker husband and coach of The Voice Adam Levine. The campaign, called #OneBottleAwayFrom, will feature Prinsloo as well as singer Choi Soo-young from K-Pop group Girls’ Generation and Chinese actress Li Qin) in YouTube films and over social media as she discovers and then uses SK-II’s iconic Facial Treatment Essence…”
They continue that the product “claims to be the ultimate skin panacea, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, refining texture, diminishing dark spots, improving firmness and even radiance and luminosity.”
7 Battling Over Baby’s 1st Word
When Behati and her man talk to the public about their kids, it’s big news, even something cute and simple like trying to influence their firstborn’s first word.
“No pressure, Dusty! Adam Levine joked that he and his wife, model Behati Prinsloo, are currently in a ‘battle’ over what their daughter’s first word will be during a Tuesday, March 14, appearance on The Tonight Show.”
They continue, “Levine, 37, told show host Jimmy Fallon that he and Prinsloo, 27, are both not-so-subtly trying to get their 5-month-old to say their word of choice first.
“I’ve been working ‘dada’ hard,” he said. “You do slip it into every single thing you say. Like if she’s being cute, you’re like, ‘Oh, my God. Look how cute you are. Dada.’… We’ve gotten some ‘dada’-esque sounds, but nothing concrete,” Levine said. “But I’m working super hard on it. And my wife is working ‘mama,’ so it’s a battle to the finish, but we’ll see.”
USMagazine.com continued, “Regardless of which parent Dusty Rose decides to side with, however, it’s clear that Levine is already head over heels for her. During a February interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Levine noted that he’s crazy about his daughter. ‘She’s unbelievable,’ the Voice coach responded. ‘I’m so in love with her. It’s crazy.’”
6 When Ellen Kinda Named Her Kid
So clearly, what celebrities choose to name their children – and the reasons behind these names – are heavily reported on and speculated about.
Just check out what was reported within an entire article at USMagazine.com devoted to where Behati’s first child’s name came from:
“Aunt Ellen has a nice ring to it! Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo had a lot of help choosing a name for their baby girl. The Maroon 5 frontman, 37, revealed that none other than Ellen DeGeneres thought of ‘Dusty’ while the two friends texted one day.”
The site says, “Levine and the comedian, 58, retold the cute story during her daytime talk show on Thursday, November 3. He recalled how he originally was going to go with another name — not uttered on air — but DeGeneres didn't approve.”
"The name game is a tough game," Levine reportedly said. "And I think I had a great name, and I texted Ellen and I was like, 'What do you think?' And she's like, 'I hate it. I think it's a terrible name.' And I was like, 'Uh, cool.'"
USMagazine.com continues, “DeGeneres didn't leave him hanging, though. She then gave him five names ‘to think about,’ and ‘Dusty’ happened to be one of them. ‘So, you basically named my kid,’ Levine joked.”
5 When She Stepped Out As ‘Pretty Woman’ Right After Giving Birth
Ah, the Halloween costume. When celebrities go all out, fans and followers take notice.
USMagazine.com reported on November 1, 2016, “Have to go shopping now! Behati Prinsloo stepped out in a sizzling Pretty Woman costume for Halloween Monday, October 31, one month after giving birth to her daughter, Dusty Rose.”
The site continued, “The first-time mom, 27, wore a short blonde wig, hoop earrings, thigh-high black latex boots and a replica of the cutout dress Julia Roberts wore to play Vivian, the hooker with a heart of gold, in the 1990s rom-com. Prinsloo was accompanied by her husband, Adam Levine, who dressed as Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant.”
The celebrity news site said that following the birth of her first child, “Prinsloo was ready to return to her social life. The stunner documented her first post-baby girls’ night out on Instagram October 16.
‘After 3 weeks of breastfeeding every 3 hours, no sleep and nursing my [chest] back to life lol, I left the house to see my girls for dinner. Life is so beautiful, can't believe how lucky i got,’
she captioned a mirror selfie before leaving the house.”
The website described that the mom and model and Adam Levine were seen arriving at the annual Maroon 5 Halloween party, for which they were sporting the costumes in question.
4 When She Flaunted Her Man’s Tats
Just sharing an image of her guy on social media was enough to inspire stories and coverage on multiple news sites.
One photo Behati shared of Levine’s back got 223,678 likes on Instagram and many, many comments from fans adding hashtags or tagging friends.
USMagazine.com reported, on October 7, 2016, “Baby (daddy)’s got back! Behati Prinsloo showed off Adam Levine’s heavily tattooed back in a sexy post to Instagram on Thursday, October 6, just two weeks after giving birth to daughter Dusty Rose. ‘Baby daddy,’ the Namibian-born model, 27, captioned Travis Schneider's black-and-white snapshot, which shows Levine, 37, striding through an underground hallway sans shirt, his fully tattooed back on display.”
Images of the famous singer’s famously tattooed back have been shared on Instagram on other occasions, as well.
With so many pictures out there of the musician without a shirt and the model without, well, clothes, perhaps it is no surprise that the couple is so well known and followed by so many fans online these days.
Throw in a touring band, sponsorships for various products, pregnancies and new babies heavily documented and shared about on Instagram, and public appearances galore, and you’ve got a family full of stars.
3 When (Shirtless) Hubs Adam Levine Was ‘Pregnant Too’
I can’t even tell you how many times I have seen a particular shot of Behati Prinsloo and her famous hubs come up in my line of work, which is quite often, these days, writing about pregnancy, babies, and parenting.
It was impossible for me to not quickly learn who this new mother was.
The shot I’m referring to was written about in so many places online after it was posted, and featured Prinsloo and Levine posing partially clad in front of a mirror with their stomachs bared.
It was back before the couple had actually had their first child together, during the famous pregnancy.
USMagazine.com covered the news of the post, too: “Burger — and baby! Adam Levine joked around with his pregnant wife, Behati Prinsloo, on Tuesday, May 3, posting a shirtless photo of his protruding belly next to his wife’s baby bump. ‘Week 20 and I'm finally popping! #impregnanttoo,’ The Voice coach, 37, jokingly captioned the black-and-white mirror selfie on Instagram.”
Interestingly (and hilariously?) the trend of expectant dads sharing photos of themselves showing off “bumps” is an entire thing on the ole Internet. There’s even such a thing as a man-ternity photoshoot – swear! You can look it up.
2 A Newborn Announcement
Considering how much of their life together the famous couple of Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine have shared online, I wonder if their fans were just waiting for them to share a picture of their second little one together.
If so, they sure didn’t have to wait all that long!
As reported o USMagazine.com back on February 21, 2018,
“Oh, baby! Behati Prinsloo shared an adorable first photo of her newborn baby with Adam Levine on Wednesday, February 21 — and also revealed the correct spelling of the child’s name! ‘Gio Grace Levine 2/15/18,’
the model captioned the Instagram photo of her daughter’s feet. ‘She’s got her dads toes’”
A little angel emoji was included in the caption for the picture, too, which attracted 782,166 likes on Instagram along with 11,655 comments.
This was all just a few months ago from the time of writing this article, and the famous mom has of course already been in the media many times again.
Having a newborn has not stopped the mama from posting pictures and updates about her life, with many of her posts attracting so much attention that entire articles are written about them.
Awwww, baby toes… That’s what I have to say about it.
1 Baby #2 Born
After all of those posts about the relationship and pregnancy, the actual birth of the couple’s second baby was of course highly anticipated by fans.
USMagazine.com reported on February 16, 2018, that “Congratulations are in order for Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine. The couple welcomed their second child, a daughter named Geo Grace Levine [which the site later noted was actually spelled Gio, with an I, after the mom herself, posted the child’s name and birthday on Instagram, along with a shot of her baby feet], E! News reports. She joins big sister Dusty Rose, 17 months.”
The second child of the famous couple had been born at last.
USMagazine.com also reported that a source told them during the pregnancy that “Adam and Behati cannot wait for their second child. … Adam is literally the happiest ever.”
With cuteness like that abounding, a husband that’s been famous for his singing and hosting career for many years, and a form that’s been featured in print and on runways wearing nothing but lingerie and bikinis, is it any wonder that Behati is so often in the news?
If we keep our eyes open, I wonder what other announcements, photos, and professions of love we’ll witness as we follow the lives of this young woman and her growing family…
