Born in South Africa and raised in Grootfontein, Namibia, she was just three years old when her family moved back to Namibia.
Her family are Afrikaners and she grew up speaking Afrikaans as her native language while she was educated in English.
She attended Grootfontein Secondary School and left after Grade 9 to pursue modelling.
Her modeling career began when she was discovered while vacationing in Cape Town with her grandparents when a scout approached her and wrote his number on the back of a piece of paper.
This 10,376 square foot home includes five bedrooms and twelve bathrooms spread out across a three-story main house and a semi-detached guesthouse.

Upgrades to the home include the home’s large, eat-in family kitchen, stainless steel appliances for the mansion’s second catering kitchen and a fresh coat of white paint over the home’s exterior.
Other features include a formal dining room seating 12 people, adjacent wet bar, 2000-square-foot master suite, home gym and a one-bedroom, one-bathroom guesthouse with its own private terrace.
Outside there is a large garden with pool and a lighted tennis court sits to the rear of the property.
Behati Prinsloo likes her sleek motors and she has been linked with several cars over the last few years.
Some of these include the Porsche 911 Targa, a Cadillac Escalade, Skoda Octavia Wagon and the more modest Scion IQ.
Her father Louis Francois “Boet” Prinsloo, is a church minister, and her mother, Magda (née Rossouw), runs a bed and breakfast.
Prinsloo married Maroon 5 front-man Adam Levine in Mexico on 19 July 2014 and the couple have two daughters named Dusty Rose and Gio Grace.
She is close friends with fellow models Candice Swanepoel and Lily Aldridge and has also been linked with fellow models Jacquelyn Jablonski and Jasmine Tookes.
She has been on the covers of several major magazines including Marie Claire South Africa, Vogue Spain, Vogue Turkey, Vogue Brasil and Elle France.
During her down-time she enjoys gymnastics, track, riding and field hockey.
As with most modeling work, some luxury destinations are on the cards that also double as holiday destinations including a lavish beach vacation in Mexico.
