In regards to expanding their family, Prinsloo told Entertainment Tonight in 2021, "I was just seeing [Dusty and Gio] together, I'm like, 'Maybe we should have a third just to have more kids,' because it was so sweet to see [them together]. But then I don't know. Never say never."
In September, during Prinsloo's pregnancy, a 23-year-old model, Summer Stroh, said in a TikTok video that Levine had cheated on his wife with her. Stroh shared screenshots of their Instagram conversations and claimed the musician even offered to name the couple's baby after her. Levine later admitted in a statement that he "crossed the line" by flirting with Stroh but he denied having an affair.
"My wife and my family is all I care about in this world. To be this naive and stupid enough to risk the only thing that truly matters to me was the greatest mistake I could ever make," he wrote. "I will never make it again. I take full responsibility. We will get through it and we will get through it together."
Following the allegations, a source told People, "Their focus right now is just on being the best parents possible [to Dusty and Gio]. [Prinsloo] is hurt and upset, but she is holding back because of the kids."
