Ever since he made his shaggy-haired debut in the '90s, Adam Levine remains one of the hottest artists in music. Forgive us if we still can’t believe he’s married to someone other than us, or that he and wife Behati Prinsloo are expecting Hollywood’s next dream child. We already knew Adam is daddy-qualified (for many reasons!) and we are so happy for the two of them, but we may need another year or two to properly recover.

But today (March 18), the three-time crown-holding vocal coach on NBC’s The Voice turns 37, so we’re paying homage to the vocal powerhouse with some lesser-known facts about the star. For instance, did you know that before there was Maroon 5, Adam sang for a band called Kara’s Flowers? Or that he totally freaked out over his first kiss?

Happy 37th Birthday, Adam!
