Fans of the Namibian model, who is married to Adam Levine of Maroon 5, are very interested in learning more about her background, particularly her professional accomplishments and wealth. We’ve got you covered, fortunately.
Childhood And Family Background
Behati Prinsloo was born on May 16, 1988, in Grootfontein, South Africa. (Now Namibia.) Boet, her father, is a minister, and Magda, her mother, runs a bed and breakfast. Behati learned to speak English when she was younger, despite the fact that it was not her first language.
Prinsloo left Grootfontein Secondary School after finishing Grade 9 to pursue a career in modeling. On a trip to Cape Town with her grandparents when she was 16 years old, she was discovered at a grocery store.
“This man approached me and asked whether I was a model before writing down his number on a piece of paper,” Behati said. “My grandfather thought this was very shady.
We went home and didn’t do anything more after informing my folks about it. The next time she was in Cape Town, Noelle Doukas, the daughter of Storm Agency founder Sarah Doukas, allegedly approached her and convinced her to join the company, leading to Behati’s recruitment.
