A woman who waited until she was 41 to lose her virginity has revealed that she is expecting her first child with her husband.
Amanda McCracken, 42, a Colorado writer, revealed for the first time that she was waiting for the right man to have sex with the American host Katie Couric’s chat show in 2014.
In the summer of 2018, Amanda finally met her competition – a drummer named Dave – and ten months after they first met, she had sex with him for the first time during a romantic vacation to French Polynesia last summer.
The happy couple got married two months later and Amanda announced on Instagram last week that she is four months pregnant.

When she went to Instagram on her birthday, she wrote: “The following is perhaps the best birthday announcement I’ve ever made.
‘Last July grandma Velda asked me when Dave and I would marry. “Maybe in July,” I answered. ‘JULY?!?!’ she cried, “By that time you could have a baby!”
‘Well, guess what, friends – Grandma’s prophecy has come true. We are expecting a baby at the end of July / beginning of August! From now on we will wait until birth to learn sex, but we already respect our little one.
‘After 6 weeks we heard the heartbeat and after 11 weeks we saw the baby’s hand caress his face. Next week it will be 4 months (almost halfway!) And we would love to see butterfly and backstroke swimming.
She joked about her dog: “” Pepper says she’s excited to become a big sister. Let the next chapter begin! “

About the reason she decided to keep her virginity this week, Amanda revealed to the BBC how her first few friends left her for other women.
She admitted that she was dating ‘out of fear’ for the first few decades thereafter and decided that if she were to be left behind again, she would at least have ‘her virginity’ and be ‘in control’.
When she lost her virginity, she said: ‘It was worth the wait, but not as people would think. The sex was great, but the journey was never about sex. I now have a loving and committed relationship with a man who can offer me love ‘.

Amanda recently told Huffington Post how she had been intimate with some men in her search for love, but never had sexual intercourse with them.
She said: by the time I was 40, I had dated more than 100 men. Although I was intimate with more than 50 of these men, I have never had sexual contact with any of them. I did not wait for the marriage or did it for religious reasons.
‘I knew in my stomach that I wanted to experience sexual intercourse in a mutually loving and committed relationship. That relationship just never came. “
Revealing that she had received a kickback from both conservatives and feminists, she insisted on her decision not to “conform to society.”
Amanda then described the moment she knew she was ready to have sex, 10 months after her first date with divorced Dave, who hadn’t had sex for three years.
She said: ‘Ten months after our first date we flew to French Polynesia. Huahine, the second of the five islands that we visited, is known as the rebel island because it was the last of 118 that was under French control. Upon arrival, our taxi driver told us that the island meant ‘the gender of the woman’. This is the place, I thought. “
Describing her first time as “playful and clumsy”, she admitted that the passion “grew” while the couple continued to “practice” all day and vacation.
Dave suggested two months later and Amanda insisted on her decision to wait and explained that it was “never about sex, but about waiting for the right man to come along.”
