When Behati Prinsloo officially took People’s Sexiest Man Alive off the market this summer, she became one of the most enviable women in the world. On top of her hot body and even hotter career, the Namibian-born model married Adam Levine in a secret ceremony in Mexico in July. Photos from the couple’s nuptials are still under wraps but her huge engagement ring and diamond wedding band are usually out in the open for anyone to see. So when I asked the 25-year-old for a flash of her rock, I was surprised to see an empty ring finger.
Coming straight from a fitting for the upcoming Victoria’s Secret fashion show, which will air on CBS on Dec. 9, Prinsloo took her sparkler off to protect it from harm. But the Angel reveals that she got a tattoo so the significance of saying “I do” to the Maroon 5 rocker is always with her. “It means being one with the earth,” she tells Yahoo Style. “And I just wanted it on my ring finger so when I take it off, it’s still there!”
Prinsloo joins other celebs marking their love permanently in ink. Beyoncé has the roman numerals IV (the number 4) in red on her wedding ring finger. Actor Dax Sheppard got a bell tattoo for his wife, Kristen Bell, instead of going the traditional ring route. And Kelly Rowland, who recently gave birth to her first child, has a simple line design on her left hand.
But Prinsloo chose a design to make her stand out from the pack. “I wanted a ring but everybody does the ring so I got the three dots.”
