Adam Levine’s first child
with wife Behati Prinsloo isn’t due until later this year, but the Maroon 5 frontman and Voice
coach is already prepared for fatherhood!
“I'm ready to be a dad,” Levine told ET's Sophie Schillaci at The Voice’s Karaoke for Charity event at Hyde Sunset in West Hollywood, California on Thursday. “You're born to be a parent, that's what we're here for, really. All the other s*** is great, but it’s not what we're here for.”
The singer said that, while “it’s good to get advice” from friends and family, he and his wife are doing things their own way when it comes to their baby.
“When you are doing this for the first time, everybody loves to tell you what you should be doing,” he said with a laugh. “So, we're kind of tuning a lot of it out and we're just going to do it how we do it.”
Levine’s fellow judges couldn’t help but weigh in on their friend’s impending fatherhood, especially the singer’s on-screen Voice frenemy, Blake Shelton.
“I'm looking forward to Adam actually having to wake up before noon or one o'clock for the first time in his life, you know, to go change a diaper,” Shelton joked. “I think it's going to be good for him. I think the baby is going to do more for Adam than Adam is going to do for the baby, I’ll put it to you that way. I'm very happy for him.”
Pharrell Williams kept his advice to Levine private between the two, but did say that he thinks his friend and colleague will make “a great dad.”
“He's a really engaged type of person,” Williams explained. “So, I think he's going to be really engaged with his son or daughter...When he's into something, he's into it. And I know that he's going to be into his child, for sure.”
