Dusty and Gio Levine won’t be going from the sandbox to the stage anytime soon!
Adam Levine gave his candid thoughts to ET’s Sophie Schillaci on Monday about kids going into show business at an early age.
“I don’t know if I fully support the idea of having little kids be on TV singing,” Levine told ET when asked about judging a Voice Kids. “I never have. I think you should get to grow up a little bit, a little bit. I'm talking like a little bit before teens.”
The 39-year-old Maroon 5 rocker got his start in a high school band, and revealed what age he does feel comfortable allowing his daughters, Dusty, 1, and Gio, 2 months, to get into show business.
Noting he doesn’t want his kids to go from “the sandbox to the stage,” Levine added, “Always encourage people’s, your kids’, passions. Maybe just not throw them on TV the first chance you get.”
He added that he doesn’t want to be an “overprotective” parent, explaining, “I think maybe not literally, like, six. That's kind of where I'm thinking, where I draw the line. Maybe like 12 first.”
Levine and his wife, Behati Prinsloo, welcomed their second daughter, Gio, in February. When asked how Prinsloo, 28, felt about her husband’s racy “Wait” music video, which co-stars actress Alexandra Daddario, Levine responded, "B's cool."
“My wife, she doesn’t lack confidence or security and all that stuff,” he said of the 28-year-old supermodel.
