Adam Levine and His Family Soak in the Sun
by Karin Leperi
American singer, songwriter Adam Levine – popular coach on NBC’s reality talent show The Voice – has discovered Mexico in a big way. At the start of the year, he was seen on the beaches of Cabo with his beautiful bride Behati Prinsloo and their new daughter Dusty Rose Levine, born in September of 2016.
Turns out they were having some family time in a place where it all began for the loving couple. Now they are a family of three. Enamored with fatherhood, Levine shared with Ryan Seacrest that he wanted to have 100 kids. “I want to have more kids than would be socially responsible.”
Adam Levine was married in Cabo San Lucas on July 19, 2014 to Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo. The event took place at Flora Farms – an organic farm and was officiated by childhood friend and actor Jonah Hill. Another childhood friend, Stevie Nicks, the front woman of Fleetwood Mac, sang at the wedding.
Born Adam Noah Levine on March 18, 1979 to musical parents, the four-octave tenor is noted for his stellar vocal range as well as his incredible falsettos. Levine started his singing career in 1994, when he became lead vocalist and guitarist for Kara’s Flowers – an alternative rock band. He counts as his inspiration the Police, Beatles, Prince, and Stevie Wonder.
Nowadays, he is frontman and lead vocalist for the Los Angeles-based Maroon 5 band. The band has struck a common chord with music lovers everywhere, seducing fans with their creative fusion of pop, rock, funk, dance-pop, and blue-eyed soul. In the process, they have garnished three Grammy Awards, two Billboard Music Awards, two American Music Awards, an MTV Video Music Award and a World Music Award. In February of 2017, he was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Spurred by the success of Maroon 5 and his reality coaching job on The Voice, Levine decided to start his own record label in February 2012, calling it 222 Records. His first recording artist he signed on was a University of Southern California music student discovered through a mutual friend. This was followed by contracting with Glee actor Matthew Morrison, Mexican artist Diego Boneta, and singer Tony Lucca – The Voice season 2 contestant on Adam’s Team.
Levine has more than his musical talents and lyrical voice going for him, as he is considered by many as one of the hottest men today. Back in 2008, People’s Magazine listed him on their “Single and Sexy Men” ranking. By April 2012, Shalom Life would rank him as Number 7 on its list of “Top 50 Hottest Jewish men in the world.” Glamour went on to rank him #41 on their “Sexiest Man of 2012” list. But the top honor was when People magazine named Levine as the “Sexiest Man Alive” in November 2013. (He was the first singer and only the second non-actor ever to receive the aphrodisiac honor, in line behind John F. Kennedy, Jr.)
When Levine isn’t wearing his signature Levine fragrances, sporting his favorite color maroon, or imbibing his favorite drink tequila (though that may now change with him co-partnering with Sammy Hagar on a new distilled liquor called mezquila), he enjoys yoga, guitar, and of course, music. And when he’s not increasing awareness on ADHD or the LGBT community, he enjoys time in his favorite role – being a loving husband and dad.
