Season after season, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton gained fame for their adorable bromance on The Voice. Although Adam, in his role as Maroon 5 frontman, didn’t seem to have a lot in common with the country crooner, Levine seemed to have a way with words that provided endless amusement for his bro. But then the news broke that Adam’s wife, Behati Prinsloo, is pregnant. And to his bromance partner, there’s only one way to celebrate: Have an over-the-top baby shower for Levine and Behati, a source told Hollywood Life.
At 36, Adam has never been a daddy before, and while Blake, 39, has gotten some experience with his girlfriend Gwen Stefani’s sons, he’s never experienced being a father first-hand either. But that’s not stopping the country music superstar from doing justice to 26-year-old Prinsloo and Levine’s exciting baby announcement with help from his 46-year-old girlfriend, who does have experience on her side from raising three little boys (Kington, 9, Zuma, 7, and 2-year-old Apollo).
“Blake…wants to throw a baby shower [for Adam] with Gwen. He was half-joking, but he seems like he wants to be involved and be there for Adam, all jokes aside,” revealed the source.
As for Levine, it’s clear that his bromance buddy will remain in his life after the baby arrives.
“Blake has already volunteered to be the Godfather, so he can show their little one the ropes,” added the source.
But will Adam need to find a different way to stay in touch with the country crooner once this season of The Voice ends? A new report indicates that Levine plans to quit The Voice because of the responsibilities involved in becoming a daddy for the first time.
OK! Magazine cites a source claiming that Adam is so determined to become involved in raising his first child with wife Behati that he’s going to walk away from The Voice.
As a first-time father, Levine plans to stay close to Prinsloo and their child, and the busy shooting schedule required for his role as a coach on the TV singing competition would make that goal challenging. Moreover, pointed out the source, Adam has been part of The Voice since those big red coaches’ chairs first swiveled around. And after 10 seasons, Levine feels it’s the perfect time to make a graceful exit from the show.
“Adam’s been there since the very beginning and feels like it’s time to move on,” explained the insider.
Although Levine has enjoyed his role as a coach on The Voice, Adam also remains dedicated to his own musical career. Add on the duties expected of a first-time daddy, and Levine has made the decision to choose music and family over the TV singing competition.
“[Adam] wants to concentrate on his music and start a family with his wife,” emphasized the source.
But that doesn’t mean Levine will never set foot on The Voice again. For example, Stefani was a coach last season, and now she’s returned as a mentor for her boyfriend’s team. Adam conceivably could return in a mentor role, which takes less time but still allows him to contribute to the singing competition that enhanced his fame. But when it comes to the responsibilities required of a full-time coach on The Voice, Levine feels it’s the ideal time to exit the show, added the source.
“Adam really wants to leave on a high note. He doesn’t want to see the show jump the shark. He’s totally open to coming back in the future as a mentor, but deep down he knows it’s the right time to say goodbye,” explained the source.
