Adam Levine has finally confirmed his wife Behati Prinlsoo’s pregnancy.
Nearly one month after Us Weekly reported on Adam Levine’s baby news on March 10 (the magazine revealed she was three to four months along at the time), the Maroon 5 singer and longtime coach of The Voice took to Instagram, where he shared a photo of his wife in a bikini, telling fans that she and their baby were his two favorite Laker fans.
“My two favorite laker fans,” Adam Levine wrote on April 2, along with a few emojis, including a baby, a bottle, and a basketball.

A couple of days prior, Prinsloo shared a photo of a sketch of a pregnant woman, but didn’t give any details about why she was posting the photo at the time.
Adam Levine also previously hinted that his wife was expecting when he took to Instagram weeks ago and announced that Maroon 5’s line of apparel would now be including baby bibs in their lineup.

Even before Adam Levine’s wife’s pregnancy was revealed, rumors swirled, claiming the singer would soon leave his role on The Voice to start a family. In fact, according to a Hollywood Life report on March 10, just hours before Us Weekly confirmed Prinsloo’s pregnancy, a Life & Style report claimed Adam Levine was planning to quit The Voice after production wrapped on Season 10.
“[Adam Levine] has had enough of The Voice,” a source close to Levine allegedly told Life & Style magazine.
Adam Levine began filming The Voice Season 10 on February 29, and after spending five years with the series, he was said to be ready to “go out on a high note” and “make this his final season.”
The source went on to claim Adam Levine and Prinsloo “really want to start a family,” which wasn’t exactly breaking news since Adam Levine had said in 2015 that a baby with Prinsloo would be arriving “soon.” However, the magazine insider claimed his plans for a family with Prinsloo weren’t the only thing that had convinced him to consider making his way off of the NBC series. According to the report, Adam Levine didn’t want to be a part of the show once it began to lose its appeal.
“[Adam Levine] doesn’t want to stick around until the show is in decline,” the source told Life & Style.
That said, the source also noted that he was “open to revisiting the show in a couple of years as a mentor.”
A short time later, a source spoke directly to Hollywood Life, claiming that Adam Levine was planning to remain on the series whether Prinsloo was pregnant or not.
“Adam would stay with The Voice and will stay with The Voice even if he becomes a father,” an insider told the outlet. “The amount of time he would have to be away really wouldn’t be that much. He could easily do both. The Voice schedule would offer no neglect to family duties and he would be able to do it because The Voice would be accommodating to all of his needs. They would all be able to work out a proper schedule to make it all work out.”
