Adam Levine & Behati Prinsloo welcome their first child, baby Dusty Rose


I once referred to Behati Prinsloo as “the winner winner chicken dinner of Which Supermodel Wants to Marry A Douche?” I stand by it! Although I’m offering Behati and her douche husband Adam Levine my congratulations this week! After a seemingly low-drama, brief and beautiful pregnancy, Behati has given birth to a baby girl. This is the first child for both Behati and Adam, and the birth comes about six months and one week after they announced the pregnancy. So… drumroll, please… what’s the baby name?

A huge congratulations are in order as we exclusively confirmed Adam Levine and his wife Behati Prinsloo have welcomed a baby girl into the world! Now, a rep for the Maroon 5 singer has revealed to E! News their bundle of joy’s unique and beautiful name…Dusty Rose Levine!

The pair had a lot of time to think of the trendy name as news of the pair’s pregnancy was announced in March, and just a month later, E! News confirmed they were expecting a little girl. “She knows what she’s having and she’s very excited,” a source told us at the time.

[From E! News]

My first thought was “stripper name,” but that’s only because I love showtunes and Gypsy is one of my favorite Natalie Wood movies, and she played Gypsy Rose Lee. So, that was my first reference, from Dusty Rose to Gypsy Rose. But honestly, I don’t think strippers would go for the name Dusty? It doesn’t seem like an “en vogue” stripper name. So the second reference would be… Dusty Springfield, the wonderful soul singer. And if that was the reference Adam specifically wanted to make, I’m fine with that. There are absolutely worse things than naming your baby after Dusty Springfield. The combo of Dusty + Rose though… it sounds like a Laura Ashley print.

    I think I have a blush called Dusty Rose.

  2. Trixie says:

    Dusty Rose sounds way too close to Dusty Rhodes for me.

  3. Moxie Remon says:

    Lol. That’s all I got to say about this name.

  4. juice says:

    she sounds like she’s been named after a favourite colour.

  5. detritus says:

    Look how she’s slouching to be his height in the first pic.
    S’all good Behati, own Your height.

    • susiecue says:

      I was going to say. Does he wear lifts on the red carpet? Because she is way taller than him in the candid shot.

  6. Blaire Carter says:

    Why not name her pollen?

  7. Snowpea says:

    I thought this story would disappear in amongst the Brangelina tsunami.

    I can’t stand him – ultimate knob jockey – but I wish them all the best.

  8. Sally says:

    I never knew dusty was a name. I associate it with a state of uncleanliness such as dusty shelves.

    • thaliasghost says:

      Yes, that is where my thoughts went first as well. I love Dusty Springfield but my very first thought was…”dusty”? As in needs to be cleaned?

    • Brittney B. says:

      I went to school with a girl named Dusty. She was the only girl in a big family of boys, and the name fit, I guess. But she had very light curly blonde hair, and I could never break my mental association with dusty shelves, toys, etc. Her hair always just reminded me of dust. Because she was dusty.

    • Yup, Me says:

      Every time I hear “dusty” I think of this clip from Scared Straight:

      • Evie says:

        omg, me too! When I hear “dusty” I think of the insult, so when I heard her name, I burst out laughing.

        But congrats to the both of them!

    • Veronica says:

      I think of it more as a nickname, honestly. Not sure I’d use it as a name by itself. I’d always feel the need to tack on the Rose bit.

  9. Ayra. says:

    Dusty Rose sounds like a shade of pink that you paint a room with then change your mind later on.
    but Dusty by itself? c’mon now. All I’m seeing is a cowboy in a plaid cut out shirt with boots and a missing tooth. I CANT, I’M SORRY.

  10. Heat says:

    When I hear “Dusty Rose”, all I can think of is the paint colour for Grammas’ kitchens around the world.

  11. Azurea says:

    I like Dusty okay, and I like Rose (it’s my middle name,) but Dusty Rose brings up thoughts of terrible 80’s/90’s decorating colours.

  12. Kitkatk8 says:

    I swear Dusty Rose is that off brand pink liquor they sell by the registers in gas stations

  13. Bex says:

    Dusty Rose is the shade of pink of the hideous bridesmaid dress my aunt made me wear when I was 6.

  14. InVain says:

    Dusty (rose) curtains that don’t let enough light in. That’s all I’ve got. This color just makes think of bed pans – you know those plastic, dusty rose colored ones.

  15. JudyK says:

    Beautiful couple–can’t wait to see pics of the baby–and I think Dusty Rose is a sweet, gentle name. Congratulations to them.

  16. Who ARE These People? says:

    I like it, and kids have been named a lot stranger things.

    • Adele Dazeem says:

      Agreed. Pilot Inspector, Apple, Zuma. I’ll take Dusty Rose over all those.

      • Veronica says:

        At least “Zuma” is derived from an Aztec emperor, so I can see why somebody with, say, Latin American heritage might utilize it. Pilot Inpector and Apple are jus weird for the sake of being weird, though. (Although, I guess Mr. Rochester’s dog was named Pilot?)

  17. Claudia says:

    My first thought was Dusty Springfield. And yeah, combined with Rose it sounds like a lipstick or a blush, but I like it. Dusty Levine – sounds good!

  18. Elaine says:

    oooh, SO close to Vanilla Ice and his daughter’s name, Douche-Levine. She’s ‘Dusti Rain’ to your ‘Dusty Rose’. Maybe just go hole hog and give it a ‘Dustee Rose heart star twinkle’?

    I don’t know, what should a future President of the ‘My parents don’t take me seriously’ club be named?

  19. Alldamnday says:

    Their next kids will be twin boys named Ethan Allen and Benjamin Moore.

  20. LaraK says:

    He always was a douche, but I think he’s calmed down since his marriage. I honestly wish them both well.

    The name is…. well… more like the name of a Levine / Shelton baby, but whatever. As long as she’s healthy it’s all good. They both seem much more low key and family oriented since they announced the pregnancy, so it looks like this will be a well loved and cared for baby.

    Good for them. Even douches are allowed to grow up and be good dads.

  21. Prairiegirl says:

    “Madam Supreme Court Justice Dusty Rose Levine”

    Nope nope nope. Name fail. That’s the test.

    • Kitkatk8 says:

      Haha omg! I’ve never heard anyone else say that!!! The Supreme Court justice test is what my parents used for me and in turn my husband and I used to name our daughter! So funny!

  22. Jayna says:

    I’ve always liked Adam.

    Dusty Springfield has a great ring to it. Dusty Levine? Not so much. But it is far better than a lot of celebrity’s children’s names. I bet they are over the moon.

  23. Eden75 says:

    I have a cousin named Dusty, so I can’t really say anything about that. I’m used to hearing it as a name and I don’t mind it. Although, he is a he not a she, so he’s not an 80’s interior design colour.

    Congrats to them on a healthy, happy little one. That’s all that matters in the end.

  24. Lucy says:

    Congrats to both of them. Hopefully this little girl will teach Adam a thing or two about how to treat women (although I wish it didn’t take her birth for that to happen).

  25. I'm With The Band says:

    When the baby name books just aren’t cutting it, refer to the Behr color charts.

  26. Zuzus Girl says:

    It’s a little stripperish but I like the name.

  27. Amelie says:

    I kept wondering why I associated this name with clothing. Googled and was reminded there is a women’s clothing boutique near my hometown called Dusty Rose.

  28. Ash says:

    I hope Adam has quit cheating on his wife, but I won’t hold my breath. He’s a jerk.

  29. Babs says:

    I was expecting better from an Adam and a Behati. Oh well. Welcome to Dusty Rose, may she elevate that father of hers.

  30. DesertReal says:

    Sounds like a really bad perfume….that smells like dusty dried rose petals and rubbing alcohol.

    Just sayin’

  31. LA says:

    It reminds me of something my brothers might say when walking by and farting… “here’s a dusty rose for you” 😂

  32. Melody says:

    The expressions in the top pic are exactly the expressions they’ll show to the next groupie invited onto the bus…

  33. Kassie says:

    Lol I just painted my bedroom wall dusty rose -.-

  34. Nans says:

    100% sure i heard about a stripper with that name. No. just no.

  35. childofthecorn says:

    Dusty Rose isn’t a name that will age well. Dusty sits by her bedroom window, eating her mashed peas and waiting for someone, anyone to visit her in the old folks home. Maybe not, but my point is that there comes a time in one’s life when it’s inopportune to be named Dusty.
