When Will Adam Levine and His Wife Have Kids?

Adam Levine and his wife, Behati Prinsloo, plan to start a family, but he's vague about when that will actually happen. In an interview with E! News, The Voice coach discloses, "Yeah, we're gonna do it at some point in the not-so-distant-slash-undisclosed-slash-I-really-have-no-idea-big-question-mark future." "Is that ambiguous enough for you?" he added. Adam was equally as mysterious when asked how many kids he wants. He said, "Like, 17. Is that reasonable?" He continued, "I love kids so much, though. I love seeing kids on the set, too." Adam and Behati tied the knot in Mexico last July.
