Name: Behati Prinsloo

Birthdate: May 16, 1989

Birthplace: Grootfontein, Namibia

Claim to fame: She’s one of the most successful and well-known Victoria Secret Models. But, lets be honest, she’s also known for being Mrs. Levine.

Where we can see her next: Prinsloo, along with a bunch of her other Victoria Secret Model friends, will be appearing in a commercial for the lingerie company’s upcoming Valentine’s campaign, that will run during the Super Bowl on Sunday. The Victoria Secret ad-spot will run right at the two-minute warning mark of the fourth quarter. 

Interesting fact: Sarah Doukas, the founder of Storm Model Management, as well as the woman who discovered Kate Moss, discovered her at the age of 16 while in South Africa on vacation. 

Adam Levine quote about his wife: “She makes me the best person I can be. She’s the best in the world.” — Adam Levine giving a very cliché quote about his wife’s awesomeness.

Why we love her: Behati Prinsloo (or Mrs. Levine) takes the spot this week as our WCW. Lets be honest, first and foremost, she’s a lingerie model who is insanely attractive. She also managed to tie down one of the world’s serial modellers, Adam Levine. That feat alone is right up there with Amal Allamudin’s epic capture of George Clooney. But Prinsloo is much more than Adam Levine’s trophy wife. A woman has to be pretty special, in many ways, to manage to tie down the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’. 

So for those of us who don’t read ‘US Weekly’ or ‘People Magazine’ on a weekly basis, who is Behati Prinsloo?

Well she’s a stunning 25-year-old, 5 ft. 10 inch. model from Namibia, South-West Africa, who has managed to become one of Victoria Secret’s most prominent models. She became an angel in 2009 and has walked in shows for brands such as Chanel, Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Lacoste. So for those who know nothing about fashion, she’s a pretty big deal.

Some of you also may have noticed all those Victoria Secret pictures popping around the Internet as of late, of Prinsloo, and her other model friends, dressed in football gear. Well, that was for a 90-minute online video created for the Super Bowl this Sunday, which is an interesting video to say the least. Also in the midst of this Super Bowel madness, Victoria Secret will be running an ad-spot right at the two-minute warning mark of the fourth quarter for their upcoming Valentine’s campaign. In it, you will see Prinsloo and other Victoria Secret models such as Candice Swanpoel, Lily Aldridge, Adriana Lima, Karlie Kloss, and Doutzen Kroes appearing in some of their finest lingerie. That is not something you will want to miss, no matter what if the game is a nail-biter or not.

Behati Prinsloo is that gorgeous model who has now been thrown even further into the spotlight after taking down one of Hollywood’s notorious bachelors. So I guess we have Adam Levine to thank this week for putting his wife on our radar.

Victoria Secret released the commerical early through a large social media campaign, in order to negate the risk that audiences didn’t watch their ad, as it appears right at the end of the game. Which is a big win for us on this week’s post!

Here’s the Super Bowl ad:

 

And, here is the one featuring the models “playing football”:
