Mario recently revealed that he was off the market by making it Instagram official with his girlfriend, Kris Stephens. Now he’s looking back on his first time.

Mario is kissing and telling — a little bit.
The “Let Me Love You” crooner, 34, opened up to Page Six about losing his virginity and the love he felt for his then-girlfriend.
“I won’t tell you the age but I was very young. My first time having sex is when I fell in love. I was young though,” Mario told us.
Perhaps confusing his emotions for pheromones, Mario admitted that he later realized he wasn’t actually head over heels for his mystery woman.
“It was incredible and I thought I was in love but I wasn’t,” he shared
He did eventually fall in love when he was 17 years old and dating his high school sweetheart.
“I would say 17, that’s when I first felt like I could trust her with everything. We talked about everything she was my best friend,” the R&B singer recalled. “I was in the business, so I didn’t really have real friends and I have been with her beforehand so she knew me differently, I felt like that was my first time falling in love.”
Although he’s no longer with his high school love, Mario has moved on with girlfriend Kris Stephens, whom he went Instagram-official with in January. With Valentine’s Day coming up, Stephens can look forward to receiving gas and a phone app, as he told Page Six Style he says those are the best gifts.
“I think a good gift right now is to pay for a whole year of a person’s favorite app. A full tank of gas in the car, a pack of hair, groceries for a couple of days,” he said.
“Just find out how to make the person in your life’s [daily routine] a little easier and pleasant while you’re in it.”
Mario could have kept this to himself.
