It’s all coming out now.

Earlier this week, news emerged that Rebel Wilson didn’t lose her virginity until she was in her 30s.

Now she’s revealed exactly who she shared that memorable moment with.

The admission was made in her upcoming memoir Rebel Rising which has made a whole world of headlines already.

Rebel Wilson says people ‘shouldn’t feel under pressure’ to lose their virginity before their 30s.

According to Rebel, she had sexual intercourse for the first time when she was 35 but kept the whole thing private due to social pressure.

Now, however, that whole things gone out the window with Rebel going public and claiming that she lost her virginity to actor and comedian Mickey Gooch Jr.

She also claims that Gooch had no idea it was her first time.

Rebel added that she was “almost at my highest weight” and that she waited so long to have sex because she felt “as a big girl, no one would ever truly find me sexually attractive”.

In the memoir she wrote: “And, Micks, I know this might be news to you if you are reading this, but yes I lost my virginity to you.”

Rebel added that she decided it was time to have sex when she learnt that her mother had breast cancer, writing: “Life is short. I didn’t want to live my life without experiencing sex. Experiencing love. I put it out into the universe that I was finally ready. I was going to feel the fear and just do it.

“I was going to sl*t it up with the next guy that came along – who also seemed like a suitable marriage candidate.”

In an interview with People magazine, Rebel said: “Not everybody has to lose their virginity as a teenager.

“People can wait till they’re ready or wait till they’re a bit more mature.

“And I think that could be a positive message. You obviously don’t have to wait until you’re in your thirties like me, but you shouldn’t feel pressure as a young person.”

Rebel described herself as ‘late bloomer’ and said that she was previously embarrassed to admit that she lost her virginity later in life than most.

According to a recent YouGov poll, most British men lost their virginity at 18 while women lose it at 17.

Only five percent of people reported that they lost their virginity at the age of 25 or above.

Rebel added: “There was one vague time, I think I told my best friend, ‘Oh yeah, I just did it to just get it over with when I was like 23′”.

Wilson said: “Just to really avoid the questions. Normally I would just leave the room when the conversation was happening. And then the people that said ‘Oh at 24, it’s so late’, and here I am thinking: ‘Oh my god, my numbers 35. What the hell? I’m going to look the biggest loser’.”
