A big mazel tov to Adam Levine on his recent engagement to brand-new fiancée and Victoria’s Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo. The couple had dated earlier this year, but took a break in spring while Levine dated Sports Illustrated model Nina Agdal – not be confused with other SI model, Anne Vyalitsyna, who broke up with Levine in 2012 after almost two years together.

“Adam Levine and his girlfriend Behati Prinsloo are excited to announce they are engaged to be married,” Levine’s rep told People magazine. “The couple recently reunited, and Adam proposed this weekend in Los Angeles.”
Neither “The Voice” mentor nor the Namibian model has directly addressed the announcement of their engagement to social media. However, the Maroon 5 front man recently tweeted “Love is my religion.”
Levine has Jewish heritage on both sides of his family (his father and maternal grandfather were both Jewish) and considers himself Jewish. He chose not to have a bar mitzvah as a child, explaining:
“I felt as though a lot of kids were trying to cash in. They were trying to make a bunch of money, and that’s fine. I just don’t think it’s the most respectful way to deal with G-d and beliefs and years and years and years of cultural heritage.”
Either way, congratulations to the happy couple!
