Maroon 5’s Adam Levine is about to become a daddy.
As reported by Billboard, Maroon 5 canceled their Hartford, Connecticut, concert due to the upcoming birth of Adam Levine’s son. Maroon 5 was scheduled to perform on Monday, but as they posted to their Twitter account, Adam’s wife Behati Prinsloo is ready to deliver.
Whether or not Prinsloo is actually delivering the baby as we speak is unknown, but according to Entertainment Tonight, her due date of September 20 is fast approaching. The fact that the band waited until a week before said due date in order to cancel the show suggests she could have begun the birthing process.
Earlier in the month, Levine took to Instagram to announce several re-scheduled dates from their current tour.
“Due to the upcoming birth of my child, we’ve had to move around 7 dates,” Levine captioned the video. “We’re very sorry for the inconvenience and I look forward to seeing you all very soon.”
He also elaborated further within the video itself, appearing apologetic.
“Sadly, it’s par for the course with having a baby soon. It’s life, and it’s beautiful, but it can be complicated, and I apologize for any convenience.”

And while his band mates in Maroon 5 are probably excited for Adam, it does mean even less time on the road for them. This type of inactivity drives guitarist James Valentine crazy, as he mentioned in a recent interview with Go Knoxville.
“I start to get a little antsy when I’m home for too long,” Valentine revealed as he discussed Levine’s role on NBC’s The Voice and how it took time away from the band’s touring. “That’s been a little bit of adjustment. We still tour a lot. We were on the road for 10 years pretty much all the time when we weren’t making a record. I love being on the road. I love the routine. I love waking up in a new city and it’s great feeling being on stage. Once you get that buzz from being on stage it never goes away.”
But he was also quick to point out the advantages to having the leader of Maroon 5 on national TV every week.
“Adam joining up on The Voice (in 2011), we really had no idea that would be such a positive for the band. We thought that was maybe an awful idea! But that helped people connect the dots. We had all those songs out there, but I think as people got to know Adam as a person they started to connect as, ‘Oh, that’s the guy from that band and they sing this song and this song and this song.’ It was kind of a multiplier effect.”
It also helps that the band has had a multitude of hit songs across their career. Valentine credits the band’s openness to changing their sounds and welcoming collaboration from outside writers as the reason.
“We were down to try something completely different,” Valentine said. “We felt like we were in a creative rut at that point, which happens with bands. Bands go through natural creative cycles. After our third record we needed to try something different.”
But in a different interview, this time with the Huffington Post, Valentine has suggested that Maroon 5 may return to its Songs About Jane roots when discussing the possibility of a new album.
Valentine said the band has spoken about going toward a more “organic, back to a Songs About Jane sort of approach.”
“But we’ll have to see,” Valentine said. “We don’t ever really know until we get into the studio and we kind of just have to follow what everybody’s interested in.”
And right now for Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine, his interest is solely on Behati Prinsloo and their soon-to-be born son.
