Ally Brooke reveals that she is still a virgin and is “saving herself” for marriage.
The former X Factor USA alum and Fifth Harmony member got honest about her virginity in her upcoming memoir, Dream Big, Have Faith, and Achieve More Than You Can Imagine. On the “Hollywood Raw” podcast on Friday (Oct 2), Ally explained that she wanted to be honest with her fans.
I was brave to share that, Ally said
“I opened up in my book about [saving myself for marriage],” she told hosts Dax Holt and Adam Glyn. “I was brave to share that. That’s something that I hold dear to my heart. And I hold still to this day. I was really happy to be able to share that with my fans, and readers and to show them the choice that I made. And have them receive it however they want to receive it. Letting my true heart shine was the goal of this book.”
The Dancing with the Stars alum also explained how she deals with her convictions when it comes to the dating scene.
Boyfriends either respect it, or not
“I share that and they either respect it or not,” Ally said about would-be partners. “Everyone has respected it, which is awesome. A lot of people respect the things that sometimes you’re nervous to share. Which I’ve learned, just tell them in advance or speak up for yourself. Most of the time people will respect it.”
“I have had those moments where people would make fun of me, or question me and be like, ‘Yeah right.’ I just have to hold that in my heart and know my truth and just let that be that,” Ally said, “It’s awesome feeling that respect. I’ve never felt any pressure and that’s the great part about it.”
According to US magazine, Ally is currently dating her manager, Will Bracey. The two started dating last fall.
