"[I’m] can stop at this moment with my new, young family and has the best time ever," Levine told Ellen DeGeneres. "Now I'm just a dad who stays home, I just stay home and do very little, it's great."
He admitted that his daughter Dusty is not a fan of his singing. "She does not like it that much," the father admitted. "I wish I had lied. I spent that one moment with her, [I was] played guitar and she played with things and looked at me from time to time.
