Los Angeles: Actress Tamera Mowry, known for her role in ‘Sister Sister’, has confessed that she did not lose her virginity until she was almost 30 because she is "religious".

The 35-year-old, who is married to Fox News correspondent Adam Housley, said after her first sexual encounter, she vowed to stay celibate, reports contactmusic.com.

"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 reality show.

The couple got married in 2011.
