Celebrities Who Abstained: They Waited Or Are Waiting Until Marriage To Give Up Their V-Cards

Celebrities Who Abstained: They Waited Or Are Waiting Until Marriage To Give Up Their V-Cards

"Celine Dion"

These stars might be s*x symbols, posing in sen-sual photo shoots, shooting steamy scenes and writing lyrics that could sing the pants off anyone, but don’t be mistaken: these celebs are pretty conservative when it comes to what happens between the sheets. Here are 19 celebrities who waited til marriage or are waiting until marriage to give up his or her v-cards.


Lolo Jones

"Lolo Jones"

The American Hurdler that fell short of medals at the 2012 Olympics is still holding on tight to her V-Card. “It’s just something, a gift I want to give my husband” says 30-year old Jones, saying that abstaining from s*x has been “Harder than training for the Olympics.”


Kathie Lee Gifford

"Kathie Lee Gifford"

The Today show host kept her sacred treasure all to herself until she was 22, when she gave it up to her first husband Paul Johnson, something she reveals in her autobiography. “My lifelong self-consciousness about my body seemed, miraculously, to fade away…” Gifford says of the experience.


Lisa Kudrow

"Lisa Kudrow"

The Friends star is nothing like the free-loving hippie she played on the show. Lisa kept her v-card until she was 31, a decision she explained while promoting her 1999 film The Opposite of S*x. “My virg*nity was something I’d decided was very precious…an honor I was bestowing on a young man.” That young man turned out to be her husband, Michael Stern.


Kevin Jonas

"Kevin Jonas"

At the age of 22, the oldest Jonas Brother wore a “purity ring” until 2007, when he married Danielle Deleasa (the co-star on the new reality show Married to Jonas.)


Celine Dion

"Celine Dion"

Celine didn’t quite wait until marriage, but she waited until she met the man she knew she’d marry. Celine recounts her adorable story of “the first time” in her book “My Story, My Dream.” At age 20, the singing sensation first seduced her now-husband Rene Angelil, 26 years her senior. Rene at first ran out of the room but then he called Celine to say, “If you really want to, I’ll be the first,” to which Celine responded, “You’ll be the first. And the only.”


Tim Tebow

 "Tim Tebow"

The New York Jets quarterback has turned his virginity into a business. After he announced that he was still a V-card holder in 2009, the dating site AshleyMadison.com offered $1 million to any lady who could prove she’d been in Tim’s bed, and VA Airways offered the football star free flights so long as he still had that V-card. To this day, Tim says he has stayed firm by his decision to wait.


Rebecca St. James

"Rebecca St. James"

Rebecca made a career for herself off of waiting. She’s been writing books and hit songs inspiring Christians to wait until after marriage since she was 13.


Adriana Lima

"Adriana Lima"

The term “Angel” applies to this Victoria’s Secret Model in more ways than one. She announced in 2006 that she’d be holding onto her V-card until marriage. At the age of 29, this devout catholic married Serbian basketball player Marko Jarvic. Lucky guy.


Lakita Garth0Wright

"Lakita Garth Wright"

The motivational speaker and author is by no means naive, having appeared on the edgy Bill Maher show various times. However, after touring the country for almost ten years giving talks about abstinence, Lakita wasn’t going to let her fans down. Lakita didn’t even have her first kiss until the alter.


Philip Rivers

"Philip Rivers"

The NFL star has the strength to pull of a lot of stunts in the bedroom, but his fiancé had to wait until they married.


Jessica Simpson

"Jessica Simpson"

Jessica was very open about her decision to wait until marriage and all imaginations ran wild when she finally married Nick Lachey at the age of 22.


A.C. Green

"AC Green"

The NBA star that played more consecutive games than any player in sports history was out of the game in one way: he practiced abstinence until the age of 38 when he finally married. He revealed his more conservative colors when he once said to a doubter, “I know who I am and what I am, and that is a v*rgin. And with all the risks associated with s*x, I’m surprised you’re not.”


Jordin Sparks

"Jordin Sparks"

Jordin Sparks is another young musician who sports a purity ring. Jordin says, “My parents gave me a purity ring and talked to me about waiting until marriage. It wasn’t forced; it just made perfect sense.” Jordin is presumably still holding her V-card.


Gary Coleman

"Gary Coleman"

Gary waited until marriage, and then some! The child star admitted in 2008 that physical intimacy was not a part of his marriage and that it would happen when it was time. When the star passed away in 2010, sources could not confirm if his V-card status had changed.


Venus and Serena Williams

"Venus and Serena Williams"

These tennis pro sisters do not believe in physical intimacy before marriage. They won’t struggle to keep guys off: anyone who messes with them could lose a limb!


Julianne Hough

"Julianne Hough"

Don’t let the sen-sual moves of the 24 year old Dancing with the Stars champion fool you. Julianne believes in waiting until marriage. Do you believe that she’s actually holding out on her boo Ryan Seacrest?


Carrie Underwood

"Carrie Underwood"

The American Idol winner announced in a 2007 interview that she’d be keeping her V-card until marriage. In 2010, Mike Fisher became a very lucky man when he wed the then 27-year old.


Angela Simmons

"Angela Simmons"

The daughter of one of the kings of rap Joseph Simmons—cofounder of Run-D.M.C.—Angela vows to keep her treasures locked up until marriage. At 25 years old, Daddy Simmons can rest assured his little girl’s still pure.


  • KalifaWilliams

    serena williams and angela simmons….i dont believe you…..

    • Me either. They both change men like the wind…

    • BlueCornmoon

      Maybe it’s because they don’t “put out” & so guys are disappointed & leave.

    • Guest

      I don’t think Serena dated Drake. She was teaching him how to play tennis and are friends.

      • Mr. Silk

        Serena was boning Brett Ratner for awhile, there are even reports of how loud she was and the odor left behind. You can find the articles if you google it, from housekeeping.

  • Shon

    This is an awesome article…wish something like this was out when I was in my 20’s. Great role models!

  • busty

    i think lark voorhies also waited to get married!

  • Brandon

    having been with virgins… all I can say is that I don’t want to really marry one… when you get married you should be thinking about being adventurous and experimenting instead of beginning to learn… as long as you are responsible… there is nothing wrong with being sexually active before marriage…


      So Ur that Dude that’ll turn a H0e into a housewife.

      • JAJA~


      • Rosetta Stone


      • noone


    • justme

      But of you love her, does it really matter??? You’re that guy i see.

  • I Think it’s easier to have the page load at once and scroll down and not have to click next 20 times to read the stupid article !

    • <3

      Or at least not have to wait for another full page to load.

    • I think the point is that you DID click the next button 20 times to see which girls were on the list still and wich ones were virgins the longest before marriage etc… oh wait that was me.

    • Abush

      Agree. You read my mind.

    • tim_in_seattle

      Its all about ad clicks

  • jrzsfnst609

    Yeah right Serena she was with Common for how long, and then Drake. Angela Simmons “We dont believe u, You need more People”

  • Celine Dion is speaking about her guardian and mentor who I believe was a married man with children not very romantic.

  • JustSaying_IMFO

    I always thought Celine Dion’s relationship was icky. I still do. Even more so now.

  • JustSaying_IMFO

    “Do you believe that she’s actually holding out on her boo Ryan Seacrest?”
    Sure lends support to those his being gay rumors.

  • beautygurl2007

    tim tebow………….yea sure.

  • SoTrue!

    I do NOT believe the Celine Dion tale. She lived with the man since she was a child (12) while he was still married. Her whole story is very strange. It seemed more like she was sold not mentored. Who gives their daughter to a grown man?

  • bigdawgman

    I thought Venus just said she was like an octopus with her man in bed. Does that mean she’s fighting him off, or giving him that octopussy?

  • TangFiend

    The majority of these ‘celebrities’ are all freaks or religious freaks.

  • delfyn15

    It appears the gift of purity has been one sided. How much better if both parties could have given it to each other.

  • Aimyloo

    Jessica may have waited until marriage- but she seems to have slapped that thing on any man who would pay her attention for a while after her marriage ended.

  • Rosetta Stone


  • re

    I find this so offensive.

  • Say it ain’t so

    Damn after reading this i’m jealous, i wish i was still a virgin.

  • RB

    Celine Dion has got to have the creepiest story ever… that dude she is with is nothing more than a perverted child molester…

  • Jack Carson

    Quite a few of the ladies in that list that claimed to be holding onto their v-card for religious reasons have been widely reported in seedier media to have only been technical virgins, if you know what I mean.

  • i don’t believe Serena and Venus Williams…..i’ve read somewhere that one of them(can’t remember Serena or Venus) was dating an Italian businessman and said he was good in bed……

  • Jay

    Until today I did not know who this lady Kathy L Gifford was…and I still don t,since I ve never watched this ” Today” show.

    • william jason o’neal

      She was way more known before the Today Show………..She was Regis’s longtime co-host before Kelly Rippa.

  • Jay

    OMygosh I was in love with Lisa Kudrov in Mad about you…I fell in love with her there but I fell out of love in Friends.

  • BigMoTown

    Damn Tebow I respect your decision and all but you have to think about it. If you finally unleash the man-beast trapped inside your testosterone cycles will increase and you’ll gradually get stronger. After awhile, I GUARANTEE you’ll be able to pass farther than the 5 yards you’re tossing now. hehehe

  • market apartments

    1. Holding onto virginity is not a virtue if you do it because you are terrified of sex/intimacy/somebody else touching your bits.

    2. I cannot fathom how any person stuck with an ignorant partner is “lucky”.

    3. The first time is always terrible. Do it with someone you won’t have to look at every morining for the next fifty years.
