Adam Levine has revealed before he proposed to fiancee Behati Prinsloo, he sought her father's permission.

The Maroon 5 star is engaged to the Victoria's Secret model, but told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS FM radio show about his nerves asking Behati's dad for his daughter's hand in marriage.

Adam said: "I did ask his permission. I don't want to talk about it, you know how I am, but yes, of course I did. I had to. And it was extremely nerve-wracking."

The Voice coach popped the question last summer.

The 35-year-old musician also talked to Ryan about his lack of success with the ladies when he was a teenager.

He joked: "We were freshmen in high school, no girls would talk to us. "I had pimples all over my face. I was not cool, really, at all. And that's when all of this started, and we're still doing it. It blows my mind."
