Her dad, Louis Francois Prinsloo, is a minister and her mom, Magda, runs a bed and breakfast. Her parents did not fully support her modelling career and her moving to London at such a young age. But, the model says they have now accepted. Belati has been residing in London since then until today. 

She has no siblings. 

Growing up, Belati loved doing gymnastics, track, riding, and field hockey. She attended Grootfontein Secondary School until Grade 9 but left school in order to pursue modelling.

Behati Prinsloo Modelling

Behati didn't always want to be a model, it was a pure coincidence that she was noticed by a photographer. 

It was during September and she was on vacation at her grandparents' home in Cape Town, where she was spotted by a photographer. The man approached her in a grocery store and asked if she was a model. 

A few weeks later, the man took her to famous model agent Sarah Doukas who has discovered the likes of Kate Moss. As the saying goes, the rest is history. 

 She then started her modelling in Cape Town where she worked for three months. She was 16 years old at the time.   After that, she was sent to London, where she made her runway debut at the spring Prada and Miu Miu shows in Milan and Paris.

 In 2008, she became the first Victoria Secret pink contract model.  The following year, she became Victoria's Secret angel. 

On working with Victoria Secret, Behati says it was a dream come true. 

" Getting the gig with Victoria Secret has been amazing. They really become your family away from home because you see them so much and you work with them so much. To know that you will go back to these people and work with them again is a nice feeling" she said in an interview on Victoria Secret YouTube video.

They both want to have more children. 

In an interview with People Magazine, Behati said: “I think the fact that you could love a person more than you ever thought... I love Adam, and when you get married and you fall in love with someone, you think that there’s no greater love than that love. And then you have a baby, and it’s just next-level love... You think there’s a limit to love — like, ‘This is the thing that I love the most’ — but honestly, I think what surprised me most is how intense that love is, and also how hard, at times, it is."

Behati Prinsloo Rhino Poaching

Behati is passionate about saving the Rhinos.

She is the global ambassador for Save The Rhino Trust Namibia

"It started in Namibia because that's where I  am from. It was an easy place that I felt passionate about. Namibia has the largest number of black Rhinos left in the wild in Africa. So, I really feel passionate to keep it that way, and I think the reasons why Rhino poaching is so sad is because it is for their horn which is made out of keratin, the same as our fingernails and hair. So, there is no additional properties," she told NBC News.

"As a Namibian, as an African, I want to be the one making the change and be part of the change," she added.
