Adam Levine Explains His Surprise Proposal to Behati Prinsloo. Hearts Break Everywhere


Adam Levine's engagement to Victoria Secret Model Behati Prinsloo was romantic, in a tearjerker movie-kind-of-way: After dating for almost a year, the pair split, only to reunite once Levine realized how much he loved her. Less than a month later, he proposed. It's seriously the kind of thing you only see in a Rachel McAdams film, and we loved every detail.

On last night's Tonight Show With Jay Leno, the Maroon 5 frontman made us swoon for him even more (we didn't think that was possible) as he chatted about their Halloween costume and explained his sudden change of heart after the talk show host pressed him on the sudden proposal.

"I remember talking to you one time, you telling me you were never going to get married, and now you're engaged," Leno said. "Tell me what happened here."

Levine, laughing, said, "Famous last words: 'I'll never get married.' You know, I still don't think you have to get married, unless you meet someone that makes you want to marry them. And then you marry them and it's wonderful."

Well, if that's not one of the most romantic things we've heard this week, we don't know what is. Though the The Voice coach and his fiancée have yet to set a wedding date, they have a couples' Halloween costume picked out, as he shares in the video above.

"We're gonna do Eyes Wide Shut, the kind of creepy masquerade thing," Levine said, referring to Stanley Kubrick's thriller starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. "It's gonna be really creepy."

With costumes that creative, their wedding will surely be just as playful and whimsical. Can't you picture the duo getting hitched in a carnival-themed wedding similar to the one Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul had in June?

No matter the wedding style, one thing is for sure: Those will be some attractive wedding photos.
