Channel Nine journalist Ben Fordham was left shocked recently when his four-year-old son, Freddy, asked him about sex.
During a Talking Honey panel discussion on Friday, the 42-year-old revealed his young son had approached him wanting to know where he'd been when his baby sister was conceived.
'I'm bamboozled by it,' he said, reflecting on his son's curiosity at such an early age.

Ben explained that Freddy had first asked his mother the question about conception, but Jodie didn't know what to say and referred him to Ben.
'It's the first time I've heard Jodie say it, where she's said, "I don't know. Go and ask Dad,"' he said.
