The Sugar hitmaker and the Namibian model started dating in June 2012, and announced their engagement in July 2013. In July 2014, the couple tied the knot at Flora Farms in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

In August 2014, during a KIIS FM radio interview with Ryan Seacrest, Levine revealed he is eager to start a family. He said: "We're definitely going to do it. I want to have 100 kids. I want to have more kids than would be socially responsible."

The 26-year-old model had recently opened up about her desire to have children with Levine, during an interview with The Lowdown with Diana Madison. She said: "I've always wanted a family since I was a little girl, a big family... I'm an only child so I wanted like 10 kids... for sure."

Prinsloo also revealed how the two make time for each other. She said: "Just not overthinking it. We call each other every night and we FaceTime... that's such a huge thing, I think that's helped everyone in the world."
