It's a private side of our correspondent Megan Alexander, whose public life includes everything from close encounters with wild animals to covering the Super Bowl and award shows.
Megan revealed to INSIDE EDITION's Deborah Norville, "We waited until our wedding night to be together."
Megan is on the cover of the new issue of Whoa Women magazine. Inside, she talks about her marriage, her Christian faith, and, yes, her sex life.
Brian said, "This is definitely more exposure than I'm used to."
Megan and her husband, Brian have known each other since they were kids in suburban Seattle. It wasn't until they were in their early 20s that their friendship turned to romance.

Brian said, "I was not a virgin. I was kind of finding myself a little bit and redefining who I was. And I made that decision, I'm going to stop now and I'm going to wait now, until marriage."
Megan said, "And that was really important to us because it couldn't just be my decision to wait until our wedding night. It needed to be our decision."
They dated for five years before getting married in 2008, and when they were finally on their honeymoon, it wasn't exactly instant fireworks.
Megan revealed, "Well, life is not a fairytale, and I think a lot of people think, okay, so you waited until you're married. Your wedding night is going to be amazing, right? Wrong! Brian said one of the cutest things to me on our honeymoon. He said, 'We have the rest of our lives to figure it out.' "
"That's true. Everything's going great now, for the record," said Brian.
Today, Megan and Brian, an event planner live in New York City with their son, Chace, who's almost three.
Norville noted, "You guys talk like an old married couple."
"You think?" joked Megan.
Brian told Norville, "That's the point for us. We want people to lay out the foundation for a long marriage."
"There's no out in our wedding contract," stated Megan.
So was all that waiting worth it?
Brian said, "I think by waiting we developed a really great friendship. We focused on other things in our daily lives. When we got married we really were best friends."
They hope sharing their story will encourage others to talk about things that are sometimes awkward to discuss. And they show that one essential element to any healthy marriage is a sense of humor.
Megan joked, "I can say with all honesty that Brian is the best I've ever had!"
