Nearly one year after news of the birth of Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo’s third baby, the Victoria’s Secret model has finally shared some details about the new arrival. Behati appeared on The Mother Daze podcast this week and discussed motherhood and her children, including the little one she gave birth to this past January. At the time of the birth announcement, no details were known about the couple’s third baby.
Behati revealed that she and the Maroon 5 frontman welcomed a baby boy in January, and was born “10 days past” his due date. However, she did not reveal the name they chose for him. This little one is the couple’s first son. They two share daughters Dusty Rose, 7, and Gio Grace, 5.
The model went on to describe her birth experience with her son sharing, “My doctor at a certain point was like, ‘I just want to let you know, this is kind of the point, if you were going to get anything.. this is it. She was like, ‘It’s up to you… nobody’s putting pressure on you, do what you feel.’ I was like, ‘I feel really good… I think I’m… just gonna go with this feeling right now.'” She continued, “At one point they’re like, ‘Do you want to get in the water?’ and I was like, ‘Absolutely not. I cannot think about something worse right now than to be wet,’ I was like, ‘No way — no water is getting on this body!'”
Behati recalled the “rollercoaster” of emotions she was on in the moments before and after her son’s arrival. “I’m pushing and I think the hardest part for me was when he … I was so exhausted, but … I was in this state of bliss but also insane pain and bliss and pain and bliss, and I was fighting this… rollercoaster of feelings and pain…levels.” She then discussed an image she has of her experience recalling, “There’s an amazing photo that my doula showed me… I think 12 minutes before I gave birth, before he came out. She took a picture and I was laughing. And looking back at that, I was like, ‘Wow, that’s so crazy,’ because in that moment … it was tunnel vision for me. I was just … [trying to] get through this.”
As for Adam’s role in the birth, Behati described his experience as well. “It was his favorite thing to watch and to be there and to help me through it … and people telling him what to do to help me too. Like the doula… putting him there where she would have been … just really making this into such a beautiful experience for everyone.” Adam cut the umbilical cord for this son, something he’s done for all his children, but Behati shared it was a “mess” because the singer is a “leftie.”
Congratulations again to Adam and Behati on the arrival of their third baby! We hope they are continuing to enjoy life as a family of five.
