And it's already come back to haunt her.

When Amanda Peet’s daughter first asked her about “s-e-x,” she came up with a creative answer.

Appearing on “Conan” on Monday, the actress spoke about having “the talk” with her kids, and things got pretty funny.

Peet and her husband, “Game of Thrones” showrunner David Benioff, have three children ― 10-year-old Frances aka “Frankie,” 7-year-old Molly and 2-year-old Henry. When Frankie was about 6 years old, she asked her mom for the first time, “What is sex?”

“I didn’t know what to do, so I just said, ‘It’s a special hug,’” Peet recalled. Conan and his guest got a kick out of imagining the “special hug.” But the mom said the answer has come back to haunt her, as her daughter starts to ask more specific questions.

Good luck, Amanda!
