When Adam Levine announced that he was leaving The Voice back in May, the news caught most of us by surprise. After all, the Maroon 5 frontman has been a staple of the popular show for ten seasons, and was even signed for two more!

But leave he did, and as he told Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show, it had a lot to do with his desire to spend more time with his young daughters Gio Grace and Dusty Rose, ages 3 and 1 respectively.

“I really do miss it,” Levine said about The Voice. “I love the people that I met and worked with.” But according to him, the amount of work was just too much for him to juggle with his desire to spend more time with his family.

“I do miss it but I don’t miss how much I had to work. I was constantly working for so many years — very lucky, very fortunate, very bless and all that — but  to just be able to stop in this moment to spend time with my new young family and just have the greatest time ever. Now I’m a stay-at-home dad. I just stay at home and do very little.”

But don’t worry, Levine still intends to pursue his work with Maroon 5. In fact, he told Ellen there’s a new tour in sight, and we’ll be sure to give you more details as they become available!
