Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo's Relationship Timeline: From Love at First Sight to a Red Carpet United Front

The couple, who tied the knot in 2014, have three children together.

Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo have welcomed their third child together! On Jan. 30, ET confirmed that the couple welcomed the new addition to their family. 

While their relationship has been filled with babies and blossoming businesses, the couple was recently rocked by scandal when Levine admitted to having "crossed the line" with model Sumner Stroh, who accused him of having an affair with her.

The 43-year-old Maroon 5 frontman responded to the allegations in a statement released on his Instagram Stories.

"A lot is being said about me right now and I want to clear the air," the father of two began. "I used poor judgement in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner. I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period of my life."

Levine added that "in certain instances it became inappropriate." 

The musician also spoke about handling the fallout from the scandal with Prinsloo, who is currently pregnant with the couple's third child

"I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family," he wrote. "My wife and my family is all I care about in this world. To be this naive and stupid enough to risk the only thing that truly matters to me was my greatest mistake I could ever make. I will never make it again. I take full responsibility. We will get through it and we will get through it together."

From sparking romance rumors in 2012, following Levine's breakup from Prinsloo's fellow Victoria's Secret model, Anne Vyalitsyna, to splitting just a year later and rekindling their relationship, ET is looking back at the couple's romance, their marriage, the sweet things they've said about one another, their plans for growing their family, and Levine's recent misstep that came just months before they welcomed baby No. 3.
