Adam Levine just got engaged to his ex-girlfriend Behati Prinsloo: what the what?

Adam Levine is engaged! To Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo! This was NOT supposed to happen. I’m genuinely surprised that this is happening. From what I remember – and feel free to correct me – Adam Levine pretty much got dumped by Anne V in April 2012. He LOVED Anne V. Anne was his girl. And she dumped him and he was heartbroken. So heartbroken that he drowned himself in Vicky’s Secret vadge, trying to date all of Anne’s friends and co-workers. He eventually settled on Behati, a 24-year-old Namibian model and (of course) former friend of Anne V. The whole thing said revenge/rebound relationship.

So, Adam and Behati were dating since June of last year, although back in May of this year, there were widespread reports that Adam and Behati were over. Us Weekly’s sources claimed that Adam and Behati had barely seen each other for months, and that she was “in and out” and during that same time, Adam started something up with Sports Illustrated model Nina Agdal. Nina and Adam’s relationship was described as “still new” in late May, and people saw her around the set of The Voice. And now, suddenly, not only are Adam and Behati back together (out of the blue), but they’re engaged?!

Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo have gotten back together – in a very big way!

The Voice judge, 34, and Victoria’s Secret Angel, 24 – who parted ways several months ago – are headed to the altar, Levine’s rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“Adam Levine and his girlfriend Behati Prinsloo are excited to announce they are engaged to be married,” the rep says. “The couple recently reunited and Adam proposed this weekend in Los Angeles.”

The Namibian model and Maroon 5 frontman began dating about a year ago, shortly after Levine split from another model, Anne Vyalitsyna. After Levine and Prinsloo broke up, the musician was spotted out with Sports Illustrated model Nina Agdal.

This says to me that one of two scenarios went down. Option #1: Behati gave Adam an ultimatum several months ago: propose or we’re over, and Adam didn’t want to propose so Behati ended things and wanted to move on with someone who could commit. Adam then saw what he was missing and he begged her to come back, and he proposed. Option #2: Adam wanted to fool around and he maybe thought his thing with Behati wasn’t that serious to begin with, and so he dumped her and started up with Nina. At some point, he missed Behati and, on the spur of the moment, he decided to propose for the hell of it. Or it’s some variation of both of those things, or something. I don’t know. What are the chances that Adam and Behati actually make it down the aisle?

Oooh, hidden Option #3: she’s pregnant? We already know that Adam’s birth control method is pretty awful.

    No one is going to take this engagement seriously when everyone thought he was dating another model. This is so weird.

  2. JenD says:

    I immediately thought she was pregnant when I heard about this. It’s so random and out of left field. I doubt they’ll ever make it to the wedding, though.

    • Holly says:

      Or it will be another Kerr/Bloom situation where they simply stop being in the same country for more than a few days a year, but something tells me Adam will not dote on the kid like Bloom does.

      • MileyLover says:

        I agree.. 100% another Kerr/Bloom situation

      • Frosty says:

        Adam has said in interviews that he loves and wants kids and he thinks he’d make a great dad.

        What I find interesting is that I heard somewhere (I can’t remember where) that one of the reasons Anne V broke up with him is because he wouldn’t commit.

        Should be interesting to see how all of this works out.

      • ataylor says:

        In my experience, when someone says they don’t want to EVER commit and get married it’s because of two things:

        1. They really really don’t believe in marriage or commitment.

        2. They don’t want to marry or commit to YOU and they don’t have the heart to tell you.

        That’s why I’m never surprised when relationships break up over “lack of commitment” and then 6 mo later the person who didn’t want to commit is engaged and/or married.

        Same goes with people who don’t want kids.

        1. They really really don’t want kids.
        2. They really really don’t want kids…with YOU.

        Brutal. But true.

  3. Anna says:

    This feels like a story that would come out on April 1st. But the girl is very pretty, and natural-looking.

  4. Kemper says:

    Just because they are engaged doesn’t mean they will get married. I don’t think he has that kind of commitment in him. I thought I heard him denounce marriage in an interview.

  5. Holly says:

    I was halfway through this headline and thought “preggers”! There’s no question in my mind about that, only when he knocked her up and if he’s been sleeping with her as he was switching up his VS catalog order (the girls I mean)!

    The VS models typically don’t show for months, so they’ve got some time I imagine.

  6. Bubulle says:

    I think she’s pregnant. Anyway Adam is a man ho, he is no marriage material, this is not gonna end well ask Tiger Woods.

  7. Kara says:

    I’d marry Adam too if he proposed ;) yum!

  8. Katie says:

    I don’t think she’s pregnant – famous people usually wait until the woman is about to pop or the kid is already walking to get engaged.

    I think this engagement is the same as most engagements now – she wanted a ring, he wanted to shut her up. They’ll break up in a year or they’ll marry and divorce about 5-7 years from now. Relationships are such a joke these days.

  9. An says:

    I did not realise she was that pretty…she looked plain in other pictures but now I see this I don’t understand how I could have thought that.

    I think Adam is actually quite dorky and insecure from watching The Voice, certainly not a cool rock star personality. It is quite endearing actually. A bit gross that he insists in no glove though. Yuch.

  10. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Beware of unexceptionally attractive men who must date exceptionally attractive women.

  11. Cody says:

    I thought he would finally settle down with a nice Jewish girl,but I guess that is not going to happen. Even if they get married, I give it a few years. First,they have to make the front cover of People magazine with a picture of the baby and how happy he is and then they will get a divorce.

  12. Talie says:

    I heard the interview Anne and Adam did with Howard Stern over a year ago and she did not play. Now, she’s dating a Mets player, but I think she’s better off without Adam. He seems a bit too messy and controlling.

  13. Michelle says:

    These 2 will never make it to the alter.

  14. Lucy2 says:

    Pregnant is my guess too.
    She is very pretty.

  15. Quinn says:

    He seems like a guy who is still trying to make up for the geek he was in high school. Never good.

  16. Scarlettmoon says:

    I loved Adam and Anne V together! From what I’d always read, she dumped him because he wouldn’t propose. Now he’s proposed to Behati?? I almost feel like even if Behati is pregnant, would that be enough to get Adam rushing to the altar? So many celebrities these days don’t worry about marriage, babies or no. Hmmmmm…something’s definitely fishy here.

  17. savanna says:

    Anne V didn’t put up with his shit. Anne is my GIRL. He for sure fooled around on her. I think he’s still hung up on her and just settled for Next Best Victoria’s Secret Model. He may be at that “taxi” point too that they talk about in Sex and the City where a guy’s light can just be on for whatever reason.

  18. savanna says:

    Somewhere, Anne V is laughing HYSTERICALLY.

  19. Jane says:

    I simply do not understand what women see in this guy. My ex-best friend salivates when she listens to him and thinks he is the most perfect specimen of a man on the planet. No thank you!

  20. Shannon says:

    Odd that this girl would accept a ring and say yes when he was just boning some other model. I certainly wouldn’t.

  21. Mo says:

    She is stunning. Too bad she dresses like a hobo in her free time.

  22. oliveo says:

    He strikes me as someone with zero emotional intelligence.

  23. Mets fan says:

    That was suppose d to be a reply to savanna. Anne is my girl. Gorgeous, smart and doesn’t put up with this whiny douchebag.

  24. kibbles says:

    I remember him saying in an interview once that he never wanted to get married (?). This is just so random. I expected Levine to end up like Clooney and just date random models and D-list stars until his death. Could be a variety of reasons. Pregnancy, or, as someone said above, his light was on and he suddenly became ready for marriage. I have known douchebags like that whom I thought would never get married and they ended up getting married. Will it last though? Probably not.

  25. yolo112 says:

    …maybe they never really broke up to begin with and was just super busy… maybe he really loves her without there being drama or a story… I like Adam. And I don’t really care about his horn dog ways and dumping/running thru the whole Vickies catalog of vadge.

  26. Diane* says:

    How do you pronounce her name?

  27. UsedToBeLulu says:

    It never fails. As soon as a man says he’ll never get married, he does. Except for Clooney, of course.

  28. homegrrl says:

    When I was 35 I had a 20 yr old friend from work. It was like babysitting when she’d spout off her innocent mouth babble. It’s cute to hear the random things kids say, but to marry it? To spend the better part of a decade with an ignorant person?

    I do judge the age difference. Also serial modelizing, meh. Boring.

  29. Garrett says:

    They’re not going to make it. I give it a few months before we hear they call it off.

  30. mercy says:

    He’s not bad looking. I could’ve liked him if he wasn’t a complete tool in his interviews, tweets, photo shoots, etc.

  31. Decloo says:

    That’s a nose job, right? (on him).

  32. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    He seems a tad insecure, superficial, controlling and egotistical. Not a great storm of qualities.

  33. erika says:

    He is such a swampy dick…..the best way to cheat is to get married!! DURGH!

    i saw pics of him as a teen wow….team nerd! Got a lot of hand lotion action though

    That explains why he is such a womanizer making up for his teen wolf years

  34. Mari says:

    My guess: She’s pregnant. They’ll come out with a joint statement in a couple of months saying they are “both so excited to take this next step in our lives and in raising a child together, blah, blah, blah, thankful for a loving family and friends, more blah.” My guess is it will happen sometime in Sept. Mark your calendars!!

  35. Swtmelody says:

    I thought it was weird that they engaged too. He loved Anne V and that relationship fell apart because he couldn’t commit. Err so why not try to win her back and commit to her? I think option 3 as well. Probably preggo!

  36. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    Not fond of his voice – he sounds like a mix of Celine Dion and Robert Plant – but dude totally rocks the red striped shirt.

  37. drdoolittling says:

    Oh, she’s totally pregnant

  38. A says:

    I don’t get why women love this guy.

    1. He’s in a shitty band
    2. He looks sleezy and to me, he’s plain, not ugly but not handsome either. Plus he looks like he wears foundation (and probably does)
    3. Did I say he’s in a shitty band?
    4. Oh and he’s on the voice or whatever it’s called.

    Now if *I* were a model, I’d go for someone who’s in a band like The Strokes. Now that I think about it, none of them date models (except Albert) which is probably one of the reasons why i love them so much.

    Edit: He also has a terrible singing voice. Nasaly and awful.

  39. theoriginalbellaluna says:

    Yup, preggers.

  40. Meanchick says:

    Let’s see. A guy who picks his girlfriends from a VS catalog. Original much? Behati should okay, til the Fall catalog comes in the mail.

  41. Sue says:

    Does anyone remember him saying in an interview that he does not believe in marriage? I think that is what surprised me the most when I heard they were engaged. I could have sworn I read that he said that…

  42. Hakura says:

    After his vengeful actions toward Anne after the breakup, via trying to sleep with whatever friends & fellow models he could, I could definitely see him doing something like this, purely to be vindictive.

    If refusing to ‘commit’ (the reason given for his break-up w/Anne) meant his refusing to ‘propose’ (even after their being together for some time), seeing him ‘jump in’ w/this other girl (after not being together *near* as long, or half as consistently) would definitely be a big pair of middle fingers to Anne.

    If he was as ‘stuck on’ Anne as I’ve heard, I wouldn’t put it past him.

  43. Pandora says:


    Paid gossip rag wedding exclusive inc, which is to be followed by pregger announcement which will be punctuated by various “top secret pre birth getaway” pap pics of Gaghatty looking anorexically slim with barely there tummy and huge tits in shitty VS bikinis frolicking with the stupid pale inked thing she married on a tropical beach somewhere. This will then be followed by a paid gossip rag exclusive on her all natural birth, with breast feeding tips and ubiquitous sucky statements about how Gaghatty barely looks like she was knocked up at all, got zero stretch marks and can wait to do it all again, offspring will naturally be long pale boring and fairly stupid. She will then be crowned queen of the angels and have two weeks post birth to lose 20 pounds and shrink wrap her bits with a laser in order to walk down a runway coated in fake bake and half a can of Pam wearing a wing shaped coat hanger that has been attacked by an intern with Swarovski crystals and a glue gun, a thong and a couple of milk pads disguised as diamond pasties all while her pretend musician husband-thing “sings” a “song” as she struts down the catwalk.
