In a new memoir titled A Love Letter Life, former Little People, Big World star Audrey Roloff revealed that she and now-husband Jeremy Roloff crossed a line when they were dating and she lost her “purity” before marriage.
Radar Online reported that she can assure fans that she and Jeremy held onto their beliefs and remained virgins until their wedding night, but some of their “purity” went out the window during their long-distance relationship.
“Even though we won the virginity battle, we lost the purity battle,” Audrey revealed. “Maybe you found yourself in tears the next morning, ashamed of your inability to keep your clothes on last night. Yes, I just said that. And yes, Jer and I found ourselves in each of these situations.”
She admitted that the couple indulged in some behavior she is not too proud of during their courtship, particularly when she revealed she slept over Jeremy’s apartment one night.
“We drew a hard line at sex, but we definitely entered the gray area,” she explained. “To make matters worse, I was wearing my swimsuit because that’s what you do in Santa Barbara. But this made it seem much more acceptable for me to slip off my dress as things got steamy.”

I broke down last night???? The last few days I’ve been climbing into Ember’s crib with her while she’s sleeping just to get a little extra cuddle time in. I lingered a little longer through our daily routines - trying to be more present, thankful, and in awe. Staying up even later and waking up earlier to tackle my “to-do’s” so I could blow more bubbles, take more bike rides, draw more sidewalk chalk, and read more books - desperate to cherish each moment to the full. Saying goodbye to this precious little girl for a week aches my heart. I might have brought one of her stuffed animals with me to cuddle with ????????????♀️ Ok yes, I’ll admit, I’m sure being sleep deprived and overworked this week isn’t exactly making me emotionally stable???? But now I understand why parents don’t want to leave their littles when they are so young. ???? I used to say, “Oh I won’t be like that... “ because I didn’t want having kids to “ground me” or hold me back from pursuing my dreams. LOL???? I was so wrong.... This little girl doesn’t hold me back or hinder me. She makes me shine brighter. She helps me become the mom, wife, friend, leader, writer, truth-sayer, and dreamer that God created me to be. Her tender heart inspires me, her fiery spirit brings me joy, her determination motivates me, her teachability humbles me, and her mere presence reminds me to always believe in the more that is within me through Christ. Today, Jeremy and I flew to NYC for the first leg of our book tour???? And while I miss my baby already, I am so beyond grateful for this insane opportunity. Cue more tears...???? Jeremy and I wrote a book together???? and now we have the privilege of meeting so many of you who have read (or will read) the pages that we earnestly labored and prayed over for years. We cannot wait to meet you! And yes, I will be carrying a tissue box with me everywhere and using this ???????????? emoji often. #ALoveLetterLife #EmberJean
The couple would eventually marry in 2014, and welcomed their first child together, Ember, in 2017. Audrey recently revealed in an Instagram post that she was having difficulty breaking away from her baby girl to head out to promote her new book.

In the post, she revealed that she found herself spending more time with Ember and getting up earlier to do her own personal business so it would not interfere with the time she felt she needed to spend with her child.
Although the mom-of-one would only be gone for one week or so, this is the first time that a work commitment would take her away from Ember for an extended period of time. Audrey noted that she will continue to push forward with her work commitments, “with a box of tissues nearby” in case she misses her child too much.
Both Audrey and Jeremy Roloff chose not to appear on the current season of Little People, Big World after years of sharing their relationship and family with viewers. They stepped away in order to focus on their own work, including their website Beating 50 Percent, a community to “build better than average marriages.”
Little People, Big World Season 14 debuts on TLC Tuesday, April 2.
