Adam Levine seems to be taking a refreshingly relaxed approach to parenthood.
“I like to think that parenting is something that we were literally put on this earth to do,” the Maroon 5 frontman said on Thursday on “On Air With Ryan Seacrest“.
The singer, 37, and wife Behati Prinsloo, 27, welcomed their first child, daughter Dusty Rose, on Sept. 22.
“I’ve been a parent for three weeks, what do I know?” he joked. “I don’t know anything. But it’s kind of part of the beauty of it, honestly. There are a lot of instincts, a lot of things that kind of kick in and switch on. It’s a beautiful experience.”
Levine’s mentality doesn’t seem to have changed much from an April interview with ET, when the “Voice“ coach said he was “ready to be a dad.”
“You’re born to be a parent, that’s what we’re here for, really,” he said. “All the other s**t is great, but it’s not what we’re here for.”
Meanwhile, Levine released a brand new Maroon 5 single featuring Kendrick Lamar earlier this week. The catchy song, “Don’t Wanna Know,” follows a lovelorn ex through the world of social media.
“Certain songs are just about other narratives in people’s relationships,” Levine said on Thursday. “‘She Will Be Loved’ is a lot more about someone else in their own situation. So you kind of have to start reflecting on things and kind of play a character to keep yourself sane.”
“You get to a point where you’re like, ‘If I don’t have a crappy relationship, I’m completely screwed!'” he joked. Levine and Prinsloo have been happily wed for two years. Earlier this year, Levine told ET that he is “a fan of heavily shrouded metaphor” with his songwriting. “I like to keep it to myself and let people interpret it for what you want,” he said. “I think it’s more fun that way because then I can kinda exist behind it and it’s like, a little more mysterious.”
