Miranda Kerr and her billionaire fiance Evan Spiegel are abstaining from sex until they are married.

The 33-year-old Australian model met Snapchat co-founder Evan, 26, in 2014, and the loved-up couple are planning to wed later this year.

However the star, who shares six-year-old son, Flynn, with her actor ex-husband Orlando Bloom, says she and her beau have yet to take their relationship to an intimate level as his traditional beliefs mean they are saving themselves until after they become husband and wife.

Asked in an interview with British newspaper The Times whether she uses birth control she revealed, "I don't", before going on to say she was not looking to have another baby, "until after we get married. My partner is very traditional."

Probed as to whether this meant she and Evan were having sex, she added, "We can't...I mean we're just waiting."

Despite Evan being the world's youngest self-made billionaire, Miranda admitted she did not have a clue who he was when they first met at a Los Angeles dinner organised by executives at fashion brand Louis Vuitton.

"I was like, 'He's cute... but he's way too young to take seriously'," she explained. The pair chatted and got to know each other before Evan shocked the model by abruptly announcing he had to leave as he had an important business meeting early the next morning.

They stayed in touch however, and their relationship blossomed over a few months.

"It was slow and steady," Miranda continued. "I was like, 'is he even interested?' But once I let him know I was interested, he was very interested."

Gushing about her beau and his business, a social media app now valued at around $20 billion she added: "He's very mysterious. And he's very in the moment.

And that's exactly what his brand represents. I couldn't be more proud of Evan and what he's achieved. He's put his heart and soul into something he really believes in."

Fellow Victoria's Secret Angel Adriana Lima famously waited to lose her virginity until she was married and newlyweds Ciara and Russell Wilson abstained from sex until they wed.
