Behati Prinsloo is a Namibian model with a net worth of $3 million. She was born on May 16, 1989 in Namibia. Her father is a minister and her mother runs a bed and breakfast. She was not born speaking English, and it is actually her second language. She was raised to speak Afrikaans, and she is fluent in both that and English at the moment. As a teen, she was on vacation with her family in Cape Town, South Africa. While there, she was discovered by a modeling agent who owns a company called Storm Model Management. The owner of the company saw her while they were on vacation and asked her to model for them.
Since she became a famous model, Behati Prinsloo has worked for most every famous fashion designer in the world. She has walked the runway for designers such as Chanel and Louis Vuitton. Her modeling career also includes working for companies and designers such as Alexander McQueen, Lacoste, Miu Miu, Zac Posen, and Max Mara. In addition to modeling on the runway, too, she’s also a supermodel who does campaigns for major brands and designers. Some of her most famous campaigns that made her a household name and a very famous face include H&M, Hugo Boss, Marc Jacobs, Nina Ricci, Tommy Hilfiger, GAP, and even Nine West. Her career has allowed her to also grace the cover of a number of magazines over the past several years.
She is best known, however, for her work with Victoria’s Secret. She is a model for the company, and she walks the fashion shows as an Angel. This is what makes a model a super model in modern times; being able to wear VS clothing and undergarments on the runway. She’s been ranked one of the world’s top 12 models by models.com, and she is friends with some of the most famous models in the world. Her time with Victoria’s Secret has made her quite famous, but it’s actually her marriage that has made her more famous than ever before. Back in 2012, it was announced that Behati Prinsloo and Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine were seeing one another. Their relationship went to another level in 2013 when he proposed to the supermodel. The couple wed in 2014 and they announced in 2016 that they are expecting their first baby together. They announced in April 2016 that the baby they are having is a little girl.
As she is pregnant, it seems that Behati Prinsloo will put her modeling on hold for a bit, but she expects to come back to the business after she gives birth. It is not unheard of, and she is still very young. What this means is that she still has years of modeling ahead of her and that she still has a lot of money to make in the business. She’s one of the world’s most famous models right now, and she very likely is not willing to give that up.
