Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey are considered to be one of the most risque and outspoken married celebrity couples — but did something on their honeymoon that you probably wouldn’t peg them to do. Nick revealed in a radio interview today that he and Mariah waited until their honeymoon to have sex together for the first time. The couple decided to get married in 2008, two months after getting engaged, so they didn’t have to wait for too long — but the tradition of waiting until marriage to have sex is something that these celebrities have done too.

Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici

The Bachelor stars Sean and Catherine decided not to have sex with each other until their honeymoon. “We made a really good decision for us and we’re excited to consummate as husband and wife,” Catherine said on The View. “It’s something that is a benefit of being married.”

Jessica Simpson 

Jessica Simpson, who received a purity ring from her father at 12 years old, famously spoke out multiple times about remaining a virgin until marriage. “Of all the things about myself, staying a virgin until my wedding night is the thing that makes me most proud,” Jessica said on Newlyweds, regarding her marriage to former husband Nick Lachey.

Kevin Jonas

Kevin started wearing a purity ring at the age of 11 and waited to have sex until marriage with his wife, Danielle Deleasa, in 2009.

Carrie Underwood

The country singer said in a 2007 interview that she would wait until marriage to have sex, and wed hockey player Mike Fisher in 2007.

Adriana Lima

Even though Victoria’s Secret model Adriana is no stranger to sexy lingerie, she announced in 2006 that she would remain a virgin until marriage. “Sex is for after marriage. [Men] have to respect that this is my choice. If there’s no respect, that means they don’t want me,” she said in a GQ interview. Adriana wed basketball player Marko Jaric in 2008.
