Behati Prinsloo was born May 16, 1989 in Grootfontein, Otjozondjupa, Namibia, Africa. She is best known as Victoria’s Secret Angel but also appears regularly in British and Italian Vogue publications as well as international fashion editorials and catalogs. Prinsloo was raised by church minister Lois Francois “Boet” Prinsloo and Magda Rossouw (bed-and-breakfast owner) before moving back with her family back home at age 9.
Prinsloo made her international modeling debut after being discovered at a Johannesburg grocery store by the same talent scout who discovered Kate Moss, making her international modeling debut at Prada and Miu Miu shows in 2005. Soon thereafter she secured jobs in both British and Italian editions of Vogue; later becoming Nina Ricci and Nine West’s face before appearing at Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show every year.
Prinsloo began modeling for Victoria’s Secret in 2007, making an immediate impression with their Pink line of swimsuits, before going on to become an official Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2014. She has also appeared in campaigns for Tommy Hilfiger, Gap, Seafolly, and Pepe Jeans among many others, appearing in international fashion editorials as well as covering American Vogue – even appearing on its cover! Her profile received another boost when she began dating Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine whom she currently dates and with whom she shares two children!
Prinsloo and Levine announced their marriage in July 2014 and welcomed Dusty Rose in September 2016, followed by Gio Grace two months later in February 2018. Recently celebrating their third anniversary together, Prinsloo posted an adorable post-announcing post with herself and all three kids on Instagram to commemorate this momentous event.
