There’s a lot of girl power in Adam Levine’s life and the Maroon 5 frontman isn’t complaining!
The doting dad, who has two daughters with his wife, model Behati Prinsloo, talked to ET’s Sophie Schillaci at Monday’s top 10 live episode of The Voice, where he opened up about his preference for daughters and how The Voice prepared him for becoming a father.
“I wasn't a parent before I did [The Voice,]” he said, when asked if working closely with the NBC show’s contestants had awakened his paternal instincts. “I didn't have a wife. I was just a loose cannon, living in L.A., being crazy. I think The Voice was one of the first times that I had a platform where I could help people out or play a role [as] a mentor. So, it did help me, indirectly, in what inevitably became being a parent, for sure.”
“You realize you have things you can share with other people,” Levine continued. “It's not so much paternal, [but] you realize your whole life you've lived up to this point, you now have things you can reflect on and help people. That's cool. I think that helps with parenting, somehow.”
After pressing ET’s mom-to-be Schillaci on the gender of her own baby -- a wee girl -- Levine then gushed about why he loves having daughters.
“Awesome. Girls are better than boys,” he responded. “I didn't think I was going to [love fathering daughters,] but I love it. I always knew it was going to be the way -- I knew I was having girls.”
“I've been saying it for 20 years because, you know, past lives and transgressions,” he humorously added. “I'm going to have to work through that. I'm a dead man in 15, 16 years, it's over for me. So, that's my fate.”
