Meagan Good's Fiancé Discusses Faith, Celibacy With Oprah Winfrey

Producer-preacher DeVon Franklin and Good are set to marry this summer.

Published June 12, 2012

Some call it traditional, others unconventional and many people would say Meagan Good and DeVon Franklin's vows of celibacy until marriage is downright crazy, but there's no denying this Hollywood couple has unshakeable faith. 

Franklin, a successful film producer who "moonlights" as a preacher, will appear on an upcoming episode of Oprah Winfrey's Super Soul Sundays to discuss his faith, work and saving himself for his wedding night. 

The Jumping the Broom producer sufficiently impressed Winfrey, who wrote on her Facebook page:

"I met a young man a couple of months ago who's faith was so strong and Light was so bright, that after less than 7 minutes with him I said we need to do a show together…I was so moved by his passion and commitment to faith while functioning in the lion's den of entertainment I could hardly wait to do a SUPER SOUL SUNDAY and share his insights, clarity and wisdom with you."

The couple, who are due to wed on an undisclosed date this summer, hung out with Winfrey at an anniversary gala for Bishop T.D. Jakes, spoke to S2S Magazine about their commitment to abstinence before their wedding. "The relationship is completely different," Good says about their decision. "If you want to know somebody's heart, if you want to be with them not only on Friday night, but on Saturday afternoon, then [sex] is just icing on the cake."

Franklin's interview on Super Soul Sunday airs this Sunday, June 17, on OWN. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
