Chris Hemsworth has experienced that firsthand lately with his daughter, India, who is about to turn 4 years old.

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Monday, Hemsworth recounted one particularly hilarious conversation he had with little India about the differences between boys and girls. It started when DeGeneres asked Hemsworth how fatherhood is going, and whether India gets along with her 2-year-old twin brothers.

"They get along. Absolutely," Hemsworth replied. "At times, siblings kind of have their moments. My daughter is kind of envious of my boys, at the moment."

He continued, "She came to me the other day and she was like 'You know, Papa, I want one of those things that Sasha and Tristan have.' I’m like, 'What do you mean?' She was like, 'You know, the things in between the legs that you have.' I was like ‘Oh, um. Well, you see, girls...' and then my brain’s like, How do we handle this?"

Hemsworth laughed at the memory of freezing, trying to think quickly about how to handle the awkward situation.

"She was like, 'I really want one... I want a penis!'" he continued. "I was like, she’s 4, you know what, you can be whatever you want to be. And she goes, 'Thanks, Dad!' Runs off to the playground and that was it."

He added, "I’ll have to pick that conversation up in a few years' time."
