Jenny McCarthy Reveals How She Told Her Son About Sex: He Was "Horrified!"
Jenny McCarthy is probably the best mom to have when it comes to talking about the birds and the bees! The 41-year-old former View co-host, who recently announced her SirusXM show Dirty, Sexy, Funny With Jenny McCarthy, told Us Weekly on Tuesday, July 15, she recently had the "talk" with her 11-year-old son Evan.
When asked about her most recent parenting milestones, Donnie Wahlberg's fiancée admitted: "I just had the birds and the bees talk." The irreverent blonde went on to say it all happened after her son 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.' And he was so tortured by it that I had to sit down and give him the birds and the bees talk,” the Singled Out hostess recalled.
The talk couldn't have waited much longer. "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."
The former MTV host, who is set to wed Blue Bloods star Wahlberg "soon," admitted "it was difficult … but being the kind of single mom I’ve been, I’ve had to wear two hats and I’m proud to say that Evan will never be having sex for the rest of his life after my conversation," she laughed.
So what exactly did she divulge to 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," McCarthy said, "which is exactly what I wanted him to be but I can’t even imagine."
The loving mom added she simply just wants her son to "always want that open discussion," and to know "he can come to me with whatever he wants always and I will never get mad at him."
