Adam Levine visited the set of Live! with Kelly and Michael this morning and the hosts quickly got him talking about the baby he and wife, Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo, are expecting.
Levine confirmed the news he had shared the night before on Late Night With Jimmy Kimmel: the couple’s first child will be a girl! The dad-to-be told hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan that he was “superpumped” about fatherhood.
When the hosts asked about any cravings Behati was experiencing, The Voice judge answered, “Watermelon is the thing in our house. A lot. So much watermelon.” Kelly quipped, “I wonder why that is? Folic acid or something?” the Maroon 5 frontman replied, “Maybe she just really likes watermelon all of a sudden. I don’t know.” He did add, “It’s delicious, I’m not complaining. I’m glad it’s not something gross like pickles.”
Even before marriage, Levine and Prinsloo made it clear that they both wanted large families. And earlier this week, the rocker told ET, “I’m ready to be a dad. You’re born to be a parent, that’s what we’re here for, really. All the other s*** is great, but it’s not what we’re here for.”
The couple announced that they were expecting in March when Adam posted a photo of Behati lounging in a binkin and Laker’s hat. He captioned it, “My two favorite Lakers fans.” followed by a baby, baby bottle, and basketball emojis. Since then Prinsloo has shared a few pregnancy photos on her Instagram account. Most recently she shared her joy that she and her fellow VS model and best friend, Candice Swanepoel, are both pregnant. Posting a photo of the two friends acting silly in a hallway, she wrote: “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.”
