Nick Jonas: I don’t regret purity ring
Nick Jonas has revealed that even though he’s no longer a virgin, he is still content with the fact that he used to wear a purity ring.
The 22-year-old former Jonas Brother famously wore a band to signify his virginity, but he revealed earlier this year he had given up on trying to avoid sex. However, he insists he still values that part of his life.
“Am I still a virgin? No,” he told Wendy Williams on her talk show on Wednesday. “I am an adult in all ways and I am comfortable with who I am.”
The star is currently dating former Miss Universe favourite Olivia Culpo. The pair have now been together for a year and a half, and Nick says this new stage of his life involves amended “belief systems” and a new outlook. But he’s still content with the fact that he and his brothers used to promote saving themselves for marriage.
“I don’t regret [wearing a purity ring],” he went on. “I think that it was an important part of my childhood. As I grew up, [I] sort of figured out what was important to me, my own belief system, which we all grow up, we all live life and find out what’s important to us. I am now comfortable with who I am and what I believe in.”
As for his relationship with Olivia, Nick says things are going well. The couple began dating after they met at the Miss USA competition.
“We’re happy and we’re enjoying the ride,” Nick gushed of their love.
Back in September, the stud told HuffPost Live of his foray into a sexually active life. He explained he had “grown” and left behind certain aspects of his former way of being.
“This is a real growth in me and not something I’m doing anymore,” he told the outlet. “But I’ve got my set of values, things that are important to me now at this point in my life and that’s all that matters.”
