The supermodel is also a supermom

What surprised her most about motherhood? “I think the fact that you could love a person more than you ever thought,” she said. “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.”

Prinsloo and Levine already seem to have a next-level love — based on their frequent lovey-dovey, total #CoupleGoals Instagram posts. You guys.

But Prinsloo says she's amazed by how much more she can love now that Dusty Rose is in the picture.

“Honestly, I think what surprised me most is how intense that love is, and also how hard, at times, it is," she said.

Prinsloo also admitted that she's a victim of complete sleep deprivation. But she ain't mad.

“It’s always worth it when you see [Dusty's] face smiling back at you," she said.

Workwise, Prinsloo is primed for her return to modeling as SK-II's latest campaign star. Her modeling pedigree is top-notch, with a résumé that includes runway strolls for Marc Jacobs, Versace and most famously, Victoria's Secret.

Dusty Rose will have the best dress-up wardrobe in town, as her mom has started saving clothes for her, like her wedding dress and designer dresses (because what 10-month-old doesn't want vintage Gucci in her costume corner?).

“I started keeping all the backstage VS robes for her, and thought it’s such a cool thing,” Prinsloo shared. “Like, ‘Look, Dusty, your mom walked in 10 Victoria’s Secret shows! Wow!’”

As for Dusty, she's mastered the runway crawl, if not the runway walk. She's working on saying, "Dada and Mama," is eating everything and is almost there when it comes to standing up.

And how's reformed bad-boy Maroon 5 lead singer Levine rocking fatherhood?

“He’s such an incredible dad, and so excited to see her grow up. It’s so awesome.” Prinsloo said. “I think for both of us, we’re just so obsessed with being a family and having a family — seeing this next step in our life."

Again: You guys! We're feeling all the love too.
