Hollywood Actress Admits: 'I Waited Until I Was 29 to Lose My Virginity


"I did it and then I felt guilty and then I became celibate until I got married."

Actress Tamera Mowry-Housley, 35, uttered a somewhat-surprising admission on Thursday: The "Sister, Sister" and "Tia and Tamera" actress said on Hot97, a New York City radio station, that she waited until she was 29 to have sex. The star noted that her Christian beliefs were the basis of her decision to remain a virgin until such a late age.

Adam Housley, her husband, is a Fox News correspondent and the only man she has been with -- a rarity in today's world, especially among Hollywood performers.

While she did inevitably have sex before marriage, Mowry-Housley decided to then wait three more years until she tied the knot with the journalist, who was her boyfriend at the time.

"I'm religious, so I waited until I was 29 to lose my virginity and then, you may not understand this," she said of her decision, "[but] I did it and then I felt guilty and then I became celibate until I got married."

The actress married Housley in 2011 after dating him for six years. Last November, the couple had a son named Aden.

Mowry-Housley appeared on the radio program along with the co-stars of her new television talk show "The Real": Loni Love (comedian), Jeannie Mai (fashion expert) and Adrienne Bailon (Cheetah Girl).
