You won’t find Adam Levine complaining about the ol’ ball and chain.

During an interview with Ryan Seacrest Friday morning, the Maroon 5 frontman opened up about his six-week-old marriage to supermodel Behati Prinsloo, saying wedded bliss has changed him forever.

“The relationship doesn’t change,” Levine, 35, told Seacrest, but he himself had – “in a great way.”

Marriage, he said, makes you feel “slightly more masculine.”

“If it’s the right marriage, if it’s the right person, the guy feels a little bit more like a man,” The Voice coach explained.

Seacrest, himself thinking about settling down, also asked Levine the infamous “kids question.”

“I want to have 100 kids,” Levine joked. “I want to have more kids than is socially responsible. We can’t do it right now, but it’s in the works.”

As he starts a family, PEOPLE’s reigning Sexiest Man Alive says that his work with Maroon 5 may slow down.

“We want to tour, to a certain degree, forever,” he said, “but at which point does this start to interfere with other things in life that you want to do? There’s probably a day when I’m working a lot less and enjoying my job a little more.”

The veteran rock band will release its fifth album, V, on Sept. 2. Levine told Seacrest that fans should expect “more depth.”

“This one has hits that mean a little more,” he said.
