Behati Prinsloo has denied she is pregnant with her third child.

The model, who is married to Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine, posted a blurry black-and-white photo without a caption on her Instagram page on Monday.

Soon, fans began to interpret it as a close-up image of a sonogram, with many of them asking for confirmation that she’s expecting or offering up congratulations in the comments.

But Behati later returned to the site and added a caption in which she explained that the blurry snap was taken by her three-year-old daughter Dusty Rose and it depicts her sweatpants.

“Guys. This is not an ultrasound lol (laugh out loud),” she wrote. “Dusty got hold of my phone and somehow posted this picture from my photo library I thought it was weird and cool and left it up (sic). But everyone is now congratulating me on my 3rd pregnancy (crying with laughter emoji). It’s a close up of my black and white splatter sweat pants!”

The 31-year-old also shared the updated post on her Instagram Stories with the message, “Wow this picture that was accidentally posted by my three-year-old today got a lot of attention haha.”

Although the recent snap sparked the most speculation, followers started wondering if Behati was pregnant again following her appearance at the Vanity Fair Oscars party in February and once more on International Women’s Day earlier in March when she posted a nude photo of her clutching her baby bump in front of a background that reads, “Men shouldn’t be making laws about women’s bodies”.

The catwalk beauty married Adam after two years of dating in 2014. They also have a two-year-old daughter named Gio Grace.

Jessica Biel has shared a no make-up selfie to support Kate Upton’s new self-love campaign.

The model/actress recently launched the social media campaign, dubbed #ShareStrong, with the aim of encouraging women to discuss how they find strength when faced with difficult situations.

Within hours of Upton unveiling the initiative, Biel, 37, took to Instagram and shared a beautiful, natural selfie with no filters.

“Spreading some self-love today with zero filters and zero make-up for my girl @KateUpton,” the mother-of-one wrote. “She’s on a mission to encourage everyone to feel strong and love themselves *as they are*… and I’m so honoured to help spread that message.”

Biel’s husband Justin Timberlake later commented on her post, and sweetly wrote: “I like you better with no make-up on.”

Regarding the inspiration behind the campaign, Upton explained that she wanted to help women “empower one another, and radiate positivity”.

“I want to open the conversation and give all people a platform to talk about all the struggles and strengths we experience,” she added.

And in a post on Twitter, the 27-year-old shared her own #ShareStrong moment and revealed her nine-month-old daughter Genevieve is her motivation in life.

“I’m strong for my daughter,” Upton wrote. “I realise that starts with me. Now I encourage you to join the conversation and share why you’re strong. #ShareStrong.”

Behati Prinsloo also showed support for her fellow model and posted a rare photo showing her with her two daughters, Dusty, two, and Gio, 17 months.

“Here’s to the sleepless nights, bleeding nipples, crying, laughing, the highest of highs and lowest of lows and everything in between. I won’t change a single thing. Being a mom to Dusty and Gio keeps me strong, motivated and empowered. This is my #sharestrong thanks @kateupton for starting this,” the 31-year-old gushed.

Behati Prinsloo reflects on impact of social media on modelling industry

Behati Prinsloo can’t imagine what it would be like to launch a modelling career in the age of social media.

The Namibian model was discovered as a teenager while vacationing in Cape Town, South Africa with her grandparents, and has since gone on to land contracts with the likes of Victoria’s Secret and denim brand 7 For All Mankind.

Even though Behati has garnered ongoing success in the industry, she shared in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar that she is hesitant to give young models career advice, as she rose to prominence prior to Facebook and Instagram.

“It’s difficult now, I think the industry has changed so much with social media that it would be hard for me to even imagine what I would tell a young girl starting out; when I began my career, there was none of that,” she told the publication. “We had much more freedom and creativity.”

Behati now boasts 5.8 million followers on Instagram and regularly uploads posts about her modelling gigs and vacations. However, she rarely shares insights into her home life with her Maroon 5 frontman husband Adam Levine and their daughters, Dusty, two, and Gio, 16 months.

“I am very selective about what I share so I don’t post many pictures of my kids – and that’s just a personal preference,” the 31-year-old commented. “For me, I am very private, but I still want people to know me as a person. They might be able to know what I do for work, but I want them to know me as well.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Behati spoke about her work with the Save the Rhino Trust, her new campaign for 7 For All Mankind, and the ways in which her signature style has changed since becoming a mother.

Behati Prinsloo: ‘It’s normal for new mums to feel helpless’

Behati Prinsloo has opened up about her experience with postpartum depression (PPD).

The Victoria’s Secret model and her husband, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, are parents to daughters Dusty, two, and Gio, 16 months.

But shortly after welcoming Dusty in 2016, Behati began to experience symptoms of PPD, or the complex mix of physical, emotional, and behavioural changes that happen in a woman after giving birth.

“I had moments of postpartum (depression) after our first baby that I felt like it was coming through. But my husband was so incredibly supportive and always got me out of it. I think it’s very normal, though, as a young mom and a new mom to feel helpless and to feel overly emotional, you know,” she said during an interview for U.S. programme Today, before going on to urge other new parents to seek out help.

“I think I got lucky not to have it to an extreme case, but you can see yourself spiralling. And I think that the message is just that it’s never too little to ask for help. So, no matter how small your feelings and stress – or whatever it is about being a new mom – there’s always help out there and support from family and friends. And I think nobody judges anyone.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Behati opened up about her childhood spent in Namibia and South Africa, her work with the Save the Rhino Trust, and the way in which she used to be teased for her long legs as a child.

And her message to other tall girls is to “own” their height.

“I think when you get older, you just get more comfortable with yourself. I would say I probably got more confident when I started doing fashion shows and catwalks when I was 16. I was like, ‘Oh, these legs get me around. They gave me work. They get me all sorts of things.’ I’m proud of them,” the 31-year-old smiled.

Some of the biggest names in fashion had a model Mother’s Day on Sunday, with the likes of Heidi Klum, Behati Prinsloo and Lily Aldridge celebrating motherhood.

Numerous fashion stars took to Instagram to add their own sweet messages over the U.S. holiday.

Heidi, who has daughter Leni, 15, from her relationship with Flavio Briatore, and Henry, 14, Johan, 12, and nine-year-old Lou with ex-husband Seal, shared a throwback home video of her breastfeeding Leni with her 6.2 million followers on Instagram.

“…and this is how it all began for me as a Mother ….day 1 with little Leni I feel soooo blessed with 4 amazing children Leni,Henry,Johan and Lou . THANK YOU #mothersday,” she gushed,

Naomi Campbell was one of the thousands to comment, writing four hearts underneath the post.

Meanwhile Behati shared an old snap of when she was pregnant. The Namibian model welcomed daughters Dusty in 2016 and Gio last year with Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.

“My biggest accomplishment is becoming a mom to my two beautiful girls who chose me. I LOVE YOU. And all the moms in my life and all around the world, Mother’s Day is everyday. THANK YOU for your strength and unconditional love,” she wrote.

Lily, who has children Dixie, six, and Winston, three months, with Kings of Leon star Caleb Followill, told her fans she was “full of gratitude for the magical journey of Motherhood”, adding that she feels so blessed to have her family.

Tess Holliday also shared a sweet post. The plus-size star welcomed her first child, son Rylee, before she found fame, and then her and husband Nick added to their brood with son Bowie in 2016.

“When I first became a Mom, I was a single, living in Mississippi, working at Walmart portrait studio making $7 an hour, & no one knew who I was or cared. When I had my second child 10 years later, I was a celebrity, had to use an alias at the hospital bc of the press following me, I had @nickhollidayco by my side, & was no longer worried about money, a roof over our head or anything else I worried about 10 years prior,” she candidly told her followers.

Behati Prinsloo celebrated husband Adam Levine’s 40th birthday by sharing a provocative photo of the couple on her Instagram account.

The Namibian supermodel took to the site on Friday (22Mar19) to mark the Maroon 5 frontman’s milestone birthday, and left fans in no doubt that the pair’s relationship was as strong as ever.

The black and white image shows the couple laying on the sand, with Adam on top of the star, passionately kissing her.

“40 is just a number, but it looks damn good on you,” she captioned the image. “I wake up every morning more in love with you….happy birthday to my WHOLE LIFE.”

The 30-year-old continued to gush over the Moves Like Jagger hitmaker, adding, “You’re so cool you’re so cool you’re so cool @adamlevine.”

Her birthday tribute was somewhat belated as Adam actually turned 40 on 18 March.

The couple will celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary in July, and Behati recently opened up about her marriage to the rocker in a candid interview with PorterEdit, revealing that the couple fell in love over email.

The model explained she was due to appear in a music video for Maroon 5, which ultimately didn’t work out, but that she and Adam continued emailing each other and developed a natural chemistry.

“It was such a natural correspondence that we kind of fell in love over email,” she said. “A month later, I went to L.A. for a job, and that was the first time we met in person. Then he took me for dinner and we talked for hours and had the best time. It was love at first sight, it was crazy.”

The couple welcomed their first child, daughter Dusty, in September 2016, and in February last year, Behati and Adam announced the arrival of baby girl, Gio.

Behati Prinsloo showed off a new pink hairstyle during a Beverly Hills shopping trip on Sunday (10Mar19).

The 30-year-old model was accompanied by eldest daughter Dusty Rose Levine as she revealed the vibrant new look.

The Namibian beauty looked typically stylish, donning a casual T-shirt with a long-sleeve top layered underneath it. She completed the look with a pair of cropped jeans and sneakers.

Behati accessorised with narrow sunglasses and layered jewellery, as she carried her daughter in her arms.

Dusty, two, also appeared similarly chic, dressed in a polka dot blouse, overalls and red checked Vans.

Clearly showing a penchant for shopping, the youngster carried a bag from Barneys New York department store in one hand and a Minnie Mouse plush toy in the other.

Behati also has 12-month-old daughter Gio Grace with husband Adam Levine.

The Victoria’s Secret Angel married the Maroon 5 frontman in 2014 and has appeared in a number of the Moves Like Jagger band’s music videos.

Speaking to PorterEdit in January, the model revealed that her children have inherited her stylish ways.

“Dusty already has her own sense of style,” she said. “There are things I’ll try to put on her and she will be like, ‘No, Mommy, no.’ So I have to go through the whole wardrobe until she finds something she wants to wear.”

The star went on to highlight Dusty’s own personal style, suggesting that she has a preference for “a T-shirt with a tank top over it, leggings, a tutu and shoes that are too big”.

“She’s pretty wild – a real rock’n’roll baby! She keeps me on my toes,” she laughed.

Behati Prinsloo starts her morning skincare regime with an ice cube

Behati Prinsloo wakes up her skin in the morning with the help of an ice cube.

The Namibian model is best known in the fashion world as a Victoria’s Secret Angel and has walked in 10 of the brand’s annual fashion shows, while she has also worked with labels like Alexander Wang, Louis Vuitton and Versace. Now, Behati has shared the secrets to supermodel skin, which starts with a trip to your freezer.

“The first thing I usually do when I wake up is I head to my fridge and I grab an ice cube. I usually put it into tissue or cotton like this because your fingers will get really freezing if you don’t have this,” she explained in a video for Vogue Australia as she rubbed the cube over her face. “The ice really wakes me up, and it’s all natural.”

The 29-year-old went on to insist that hydration was one of the key parts of her skincare regime, especially when she wakes up early or hasn’t had a good night’s sleep. Her next step is a spritz of the Mid-Day Essence face mist by SKII, which she recommends keeping in the fridge so it’s extra “refreshing”, before mixing multiple serums to make her complexion glow while also boosting it with antioxidants.

“If my lips feel dry, I use these lip masks and they’re so fun!” she smiled, applying one of one of Pilaten’s bright pink collagen masks before patting an eye cream under her eyes.

And the fashion icon, who is married to Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, is adamant that sunblock is non-negotiable.

“My mum used to be crazy about sunblock to the point as a kid I would get so annoyed and was so over it, but now I thank her,” Behati added.

Behati Prinsloo struggled with postpartum depression after she gave birth to her first child.

The Namibian model and her Maroon 5 frontman husband Adam Levine are parents to two daughters – Dusty Rose, two, and 10-month-old Gio Grace.

Now, in a new interview with PorterEdit, Behati has opened up about pregnancy and motherhood, and shared that she experienced a rough patch following the birth of Dusty in 2016.

“After my first baby, I had a little postpartum depression and it was difficult to get back into normal life, but after the second one everything felt so much easier; it was easier for me to workout, breastfeeding was easier,” she said.

Behati went on to explain that she “really liked” being pregnant and put no pressure on herself to dive straight back into work following the birth of each of her girls.

But she was thrilled to be invited to walk in the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in New York last November (18) and was amazed by how confident she felt on the catwalk at the lingerie spectacle.

“I did the Victoria’s Secret show eight months after I had Gio. I felt so empowered. I was like, ‘I can do this, I have two kids.’ It was a beautiful journey,” the 30-year-old commented.

Elsewhere in the chat, Behati spoke about how she has received support from her Victoria’s Secret pals, especially the models who are mothers.

She even has a group chat with Candice Swanepoel, who has two small boys, and Lily Aldridge, who shares six-year-old daughter Dixie with Kings of Leon rocker husband Caleb Followill, and is currently expecting her second child.

“I have a WhatsApp group with my best friends Candice Swanepoel and Lily Aldridge. Lily is pregnant at the moment, so me and Candice are constantly telling her what products to get… It’s so fun to have that friendship where you totally understand each other’s job, but you never talk about work,” she smiled. “It’s a mom thread!”

Ashley Graham insists ‘beauty is beyond size’ amid Victoria’s Secret controversy

Ashley Graham has weighed in on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show controversy, insisting that for her, “beauty has always been beyond size”.

The lingerie brand came under fire for their lack of diversity in their annual show, with many models calling them out for not including any curvy models in the runway extravaganza.

Ashley, arguably the world’s most famous plus-size models, had her say as the Fashion Show aired on U.S. television on Sunday night (02Dec18), sharing a series of pictures from her Ashley Graham for Addition Elle lingerie catwalk show on her Instagram page alongside the caption “#BeautyBeyondSize”.

Explaining why she decided to make the public statement, Ashley told People: “For me beauty has always been beyond size. This is about using women who look different because we all look different and we need to praise that difference about us. That is what is beautiful, it’s that we’re all not created the same. So I am just so happy that I actually make lingerie for women who want to feel sexy and who want to feel accepted.

“I can’t speak to what anybody else wants to do except for myself and the fact that I will always have an inclusive runway show.”

Victoria’s Secret have also come under fire after chief executive Ed Razek commented in an interview with U.S. Vogue that he had opted against including transgender models in the show. He later apologised for being insensitive, but was slammed by stars including Halsey, who had performed at the annual show in November.

Behati Prinsloo was one of the models who walked in the runway presentation, and defended Victoria’s Secret in a chat with Elle magazine, telling the publication: “There’s a lot of talk about everything but I think people need to also understand that it’s a show. It’s not saying negative or positive about any body type, it’s ‘this is who they are’.

“We’re strong, we’re confident, and I think any woman is a Victoria’s Secret woman. But people also need to understand that it’s just a show.”
