Cheryl Cole made her first boyfriend wait three months before she agreed to lose her virginity to him when she was 15
Cheryl Cole is "really proud" she waited to lose her virginity.
The Girls Aloud beauty - who is married to soccer star Ashley Cole -first had sex when she was 15 but wouldn't give in to her then-lover's advances for three months.
She told Glamour magazine: "I've never had a one-night stand - the thought of being intimate with someone you don't know really freaks me out. I think men should earn that intimacy.
"I was 15 when I lost my virginity, but I made my boyfriend wait three months, so I am really proud of myself for that."
Cheryl, 26, has an old-fashioned view of relationships and is happy that she and Ashley tied the knot when she was just 23.
When asked if she regretted marrying so young, she replied: "Not really - all the women in my family did the same. Before I met Ashley, I had only had three long-term relationships.
"I have quite an old-fashioned mentality and like the fact that by the time I am 33, Ashley and I will have been married for 10 years."
