Adam Levine is feeling the sting of rejection.
The Maroon 5 frontman came face-to-face with a young fan on Friday’s “Ellen,” only to discover his admirer was already “over it.”
Host Ellen DeGeneres welcomed 3-year-old Mila and her mom to the show to discuss a viral video in which the toddler doesn’t take kindly to the news of Adam’s wedding.
The comedienne gifted Mila with an Adam-themed outfit, and
asked if the 36-year-old singer is her “boyfriend.” Adorably, Mila
confirmed she and Adam are indeed a couple – despite the two having never

Ellen then told Mila she should “wait a little bit” to tie
the knot – “like 7 or 8,” she suggested – before introducing Adam as
a surprise guest.
The “Voice” coach got down on one knee to say hi
to Mila, presenting her with a single rose and a hug.

However, the shy youngster seemed a bit too overwhelmed to
give Adam her full attention and quickly reached for her mother instead.
“She’s clearly transfixed,” he joked, as Mila
keeps her back turned toward him throughout most of the appearance.
“It’s a lot to meet the love of your life all of a
sudden,” Ellen replied.
Adam took the dismissal in stride, saying he found Mila’s
story “so cute.”

“Every single person I know in my entire life sent it
to me,” Adam said of the clip, which features a distraught Mila breaking
down in tears after learning her celebrity crush is off the market.
Adam married model Behati Prinsloo in July 2014, but Mila didn’t
find out until much later. Her outburst was uploaded to YouTube on Sept. 30,
and has since generated nearly six million views.
