No one wants to learn about the ins and outs of sex from their mother, but at least Jenny McCarthy is pretty cool. That's not to say her 11-year-old son was not completely mortified by the talk.

The former View co-host revealed to Us Weekly on Tuesday that she just recently had the talk with her son Evan.

"I just had the birds and the bees talk," the TV personality confessed before going on to explain that her son had recently watched a viral video of a woman giving birth.

"He watched that recent video of that dad driving his wife to the hospital who was going to have a baby … She's screaming bloody murder and he was like, 'What's going on? What's going on?' And I'm like, 'This woman is having a baby,'" Donnie Wahlberg's fiancée said.

"And he was so tortured by it that I had to sit down and give him the birds and the bees talk," she said.

However, although her son may not have enjoyed learning all about the birds and the bees, McCarthy feels it was the right time to do it.

"I kind of knew it was time because I accidentally told him … that sex was like feet rubs," McCarthy explained. "And I looked on his iPad and there were 2,000 pics of foot rubs and I'm like, 'Oh my god, he's going to have a foot fetish for the rest of his life!' So I just sat down and had the real heart-to-heart talk with him."

Nope, it's definitely not like foot rubs. So, what details did the Scary Movie 3 actress actually give her son?

"I talked about kind of the physical part. I'm like, 'You know how you're talking about things happening?' I'm like, 'This is what your body is going to want to do and it's normal but your body can't yet because you're too young,' and he was horrified."
