Former "View" host Jenny McCarthy finally had that uncomfortable talk with her 11-year-old son, Evan.

"I just had the birds and the bees talk," she told Us Weekly.

"He watched that recent video of that dad driving his wife to the hospital who was going to have a baby," she said. "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."

But viral video aside, the new SirusXM show host said it was time to have the talk for other reasons.

"I accidentally told him ... that sex was like feet rubs," she said. "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. ... It was difficult."

She added, "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, which is exactly what I wanted him to be but I can’t even imagine."

McCarthy, who is set to wed fiance Donnie Wahlberg in the coming months, said she had the talk because she always wants to keep the communication between her and her son open and, "He can come to me with whatever he wants always and I will never get mad at him."
