When host Jimmy Fallon asked if Levine’s first child has started saying words, the Maroon 5 frontman revealed that it’s a point of contention in his house.

“I've been working 'dada' hard. You work on it really hard and you do slip it into every single thing you say. If she's being cute, you're like, 'Oh my god, Look at how cute you are! Dada!'” he quipped. “We've gotten some 'dada-esque' sounds but nothing concrete but I'm working super hard at it. And my wife is working 'mama,' so it's a battle to the finish.”

The Voice coach is thrilled to be a first-time parent, saying, “It’s so fun. They do new stuff all the time and it’s constantly entertaining. It’s the best thing in the world.”

The couple has been enjoying their time with their daughter. In early February, the little girl made her public debut at Levine’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star ceremony.

During the event, Levine gushed about his beautiful family, saying, "I quickly realized all the self-belief in the world doesn't really matter -- you have people loving you, supporting you, and always kind of telling you it was going to be alright, and that is how you succeed. And I have a daughter, I have the most beautiful wife in the entire world. I am the luckiest person who has ever lived, and it has nothing to do with me, it has to do with the people who love me."
