Tamera Mowry Tamera Mowry-Housley admits that her religious beliefs prevented her from getting intimate with a man until she was 29. The former "Sister, Sister" star did not lose her virginity until later in life and felt guilty after she did the deed.

The actress-turned-reality TV star confessed the secret during a radio interview with her "The Real" talk show co-stars.

"I don't know how to explain this. I'm religious, so I waited until I was 29 to lose my virginity. You may not understand this (but) I did it, then I felt guilty, then I became celibate until I got married," she said on HOT97NY.
In 2011, Mowry, 35, wed Fox News correspondent Adam Housley. However, since she vowed to remain celibate after her first sexual encounter she did not sleep with Housely until after the wedding. The couple has one daughter together.

"The Real" talk show stars Mowry, Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon, and Jeannie Mai.
