“I don’t know how to explain this, but I’m religious … So I waited ’til I was 29 to lose my virginity,” she said. “And then — you may not understand this — I did it and then I felt guilty, and then I became celibate until I got married.”
The devout Christian actress married Adam Housley, a FOX News correspondent, in 2011 after six years of dating. According to Mowry, her husband is the only man she’s ever slept with and the couple only moved in together once they wed.
“We decided, it was both of our decision, not to live together for religious reasons,” she said in a 2011 interview. “I’m being very honest. We actually didn’t wait before we got married to be intimate … but we did wait 3 years.”
“I wanted to do what felt right for me. I became re-virginized. It’s something that just felt right for me. It was just a personal choice. And even after being intimate, we decided as a couple to be celibate until the wedding.”
Mowry, 35, and Housley, 41, welcomed son Aden last November.
