International performer Billy Crawford expressed admiration to singer-actress and rumored girlfriend Nikki Gil for wearing a "purity ring."

"I think it's a blessing that we have people like that in this world at makikita niyo naman kung gaano magmahal ang pamilya nila. So I'm happy that she's proud to wear it and I'm happy to be part of it," Crawford said.

Crawford said that the matter is a personal issue between Gil and her mom.

Gil earlier revealed that her mother gave her the "promise ring" last year. Engraved on the ring are words "I’ll wait ’08” which means that she will wait until the right man comes along.
   
Nikki, who is a Christian, said that she proudly wears the ring to remind herself that true love waits and that sex will have to wait until after marriage.

She even said that she will also replace the purity ring with a wedding ring once she get married and pass on the purity ring to her child.

International artists such as American Idol's Jordin Sparks and boy-band Jonas Brothers have also proudly worn purity rings to promote abstinence and purity among teenagers.
