Behati Prinsloo appeared to reveal the gender of her third baby with husband Adam Levine when she opened up about her birth process The Mother Daze podcast this week.
Prinsloo has previously spoken to the hosts, actresses Sarah Wright Olsen and Teresa Palmer, about her two previous births – she and Levine also share daughters Dusty Rose, 7, and Gio Grace, 5, and returned to talk about the birth of her first son, who the family welcome to January this year.
The 35-year-old model used male pronouns when describing the birth experience, which took place ten days after the baby’s due date.
“I’m pushing and I think the hardest thing for me was when he… I was in this state of bliss, but also of crazy pain and bliss and pain and bliss, and I was fighting this… roller coaster of feelings and pain,” she shared.
However, throughout the process, Prinsloo said she “felt so connected to him,” adding, “I was just so amazed by women in general.” I thought, ‘Wow, I fucking did this.
In retrospect, Prinsloo may have hinted at having a son in an earlier Instagram post. She shared a carousel in August with a video of the baby’s legs dressed in a “Beastie Boys” onesie.
Prinsloo shared that she opted against painkillers before giving birth, recalling, “My doctor at one point said, ‘I just want to let you know, this is basically the point, if you were to get anything… this is it. ‘”
“She said, ‘It’s up to you…no one is putting pressure on you, do what you feel.'” she continued. “I thought, ‘I feel really good… I guess I’ll just go with this feeling now.'”
She also opted against a water birth, joking: “I was like, ‘Absolutely not. I can’t think of anything worse than being wet right now.'”
“I thought, ‘No way, no water is getting on this body!’” she recalled.
As for Levine, Prinsloo said her husband was nothing but supportive during the birth, although she teased him during the process for being a “stress eater.”
“It was also on his brother’s birthday, so they had donuts. And Adam had about a dozen donuts, because…nervous eating,” she said, laughing.
“It was his favorite thing to watch and be there and help me through it,” she said. “Like the doula…putting him where she would have been…making this such a beautiful experience for everyone.”
However, Levine had some difficulty cutting the umbilical cord.
“He’s left-handed, so… the scissors, it’s always a mess,” she teased. “[He was] so nervous.”
It seems the couple’s third pregnancy came as a surprise, as Prinsloo revealed: “It actually took longer than expected, so we also thought maybe that was a sign. You know, maybe we’ll be fine, and then Of course I’m going to get pregnant.”
And it seems the couple aren’t ruling out expanding their family, as Prinsloo mused that she would expect another birth experience to be as unique as her first three.
“If I have a fourth, I can’t tell you what I’m going to do,” she said.
