Adam Levine Wins Over Behati Prinsloo’s Family

When it comes to walking down the aisle, every groom-to-be knows you’re not just marrying the future bride, you’re saying "I do" to her entire family.

So when Adam Levine was wooing Behati Prinsloo, he was also trying to win over her parents. And just like their daughter, they say yes!

"I have the greatest respect for Adam, the way he handled the whole situation, Behati as well,” Behati’s father Boet Prinsloo told Celebuzz.

“We talked to each other and he presented himself in such a way to me that I appreciate him for that."

The 24-year-old Victoria’s Secret Angel, who snagged one of Hollywood’s most perpetual bachelors, is from South Africa where her parents own a bed & breakfast in the bordering country of Namibia.

"Every choice that my daughter makes with anyone in her life we'd be happy to have them as part of the family. And we are happy to have Adam as part of the family,” he added.

And who knew the 34-year-old rocker was so traditional.

His future in-laws admitted they were aware of the proposal before female hearts were broken around the world when news made headlines that the Maroon 5 frontman’s own heart was permanently taken by the supermodel.

"We did talk before he asked her,” admitted Boet.

But surprisingly he's never met his famous future son-in-law.

"We haven' t met in person yet,” he revealed.

So will a wedding in South Africa be the perfect countryside backdrop for their nuptials and a first-time family reunion?

Actually, this proud papa thinks the “I do’s” will be better suited in the States.

"I don't think it's practically a good thing because the whole family on the other side is over there [in the U.S.] So it's best if we go there.”

Just days after the The Voice judge and his fiancee confirmed (to everyone’s surprise) that they'd reconciled and she said yes, the South African beauty was spotted showing off her new left hand bauble to friends NYC at Mercer Kitchen.

And she couldn’t hold back her enthusiasm in an interview with ET Canada, calling her diamond accessory "perfect!"

"I am so happy and excited and still can't believe it's true!" she said. "It was a one-knee thing! It was serious, it was very old school!"
