Maroon 5 didn't have to look far when casting the leads of their "Middle Ground" music video. Lead singer and former The Voice Coach (Seasons 1-16) Adam Levine simply recruited his wife, model Behati Prinsloo, and their two daughters.

How to Watch

Watch the Season 26 premiere of The Voice on Monday, September 23 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

The video shows the band jamming in an idyllic, airy home before heading into the backyard to sit around a dining table. Before long, Prinsloo, in a black dress and sunglasses, has joined her husband, high-fiving the band and laughing along with the conversation.

Prinsloo and the couple's two daughters, Dusty Rose and Gio Grace, sit on a leather couch while dad sings his heart out, and later, Prinsloo and Levine relax in a hammock before being joined by their girls.

In addition to Gio and Dusty, Levine and Prinsloo share a baby boy, born in January 2023, though he skipped the video. As the band prepared to extend their residency in Vegas, the rocker opened up about how much he loves being a family man. 

"I don't know how you can have a better life. I’m lucky enough to do what I love professionally, but also have the greatest personal life and family I could ever ask for,” he said in an interview. "And having kids and a wonderful wife, and just that life that I cling so much to. I love it so much.” He added that he gets to have the best of both worlds, explaining, “[Family] means more than my career. But at the same time, having both is just a gift. And I think you don't appreciate s--- like that until you get a little older… As the years go on, I just get sappier and more sentimental about it. I love it so damn much."

Family time is one of the reasons Levine left his post (or rather, his chair) at The Voice. “I was just constantly working for so many years — very lucky, very fortunate, very blessed and all that, but [I wanted] to be able to spend time in this moment with my new, young family, and just have the greatest time ever," Levine said on Ellen. "Now I’m just, like, a stay-at-home dad! I just stay home and do very little. It’s great.”
