Behati Prinsloo: biography
Behati Prinsloo is a supermodel from Namibia, famous for being one of a Victoria's Secret Angel.
The model was born and raised in Namibia, although Behati is not African by nationality. The girl's father, Boet Prinsloo, worked as a church minister. Her mother, Magda, run a cheap bed and breakfast.
Behati studied both the local dialect and English at school. But at the same time, Prinsloo was a tomboy and could not calm down even in the church. When the parishioners told her to be more quiet, Behati cried that this was her father's church, and she could do whatever she wanted.
When Behati was a teenager, she loved sports: gymnastics, athletics, and even field hockey. The girl didn’t become a professional athlete, but it helped her to form a beautiful body.
When the girl was 15, she went to Cape Town, South Africa with her grandmother. During their trip, the famous scout and the director of the modeling agency Sarah Doukas noticed Behati. This woman once opened Kate Moss to the world of the modeling business. Behati was invited to the photo shooting. Firstly, she didn’t like this proposal, primarily because she expected a negative reaction from her father.
But Boet, on the contrary, supported this idea. The model's father confessed many years later that he realized that this was the only way to give the daughter the opportunity to see the world. So Prinsloo signed a contract with a modeling agency and a few months later she participated in the photo shoot in London.
For her modeling career, Behati Prinsloo advertised the products such famous brands as Chanel, Versace, Lacoste, Christian Dior, Dolce & Gabbana and others. Since 2007, Behati works with Victoria's Secret and appears at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

When Behati Prinsloo was 16 years old, the girl met and began dating the British model Jamie Strachan. Their relations lasted seven years, but then the couple broke up. Jamie found a new girlfriend, the actress Dakota Fanning. Behati met a musician and singer, the soloist of "Maroon 5", Adam Levine. This relationship was stormy and bright, and the love story of the stars was full of both romantic moments and scandals.
Prinsloo even broke off the relationship with her lover, but later the young people made up. On July 19, 2014, the couple got married.
