Jenny McCarthy’s pediatric dentist received some Playboy photos of her upcoming spread by accident, and boy was he shocked!

McCarthy, 39, explained how it happened and the full details of an embarrassing story about accidentally sending racy pictures to the wrong person via text message.

“It’s horrific to remember. [My son, Evan, 10] woke up and was like, ‘There’s this weird thing on my gum.’ I saw this abscess sticking out from his gum and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s disgusting!’ So I called the dentist and I was like, ‘This is insane.’ He’s like, ‘Take a picture and send it to me.’”

Us Weekly reported that McCarthy did as instructed. “I went to the bathroom and I was shoving my iPhone in his mouth. I’m taking a picture of it and I’m sending it to the dentist and I sent him a nude on accident!” she recalled. “I swear to God!”

The self-snapped photo in question was originally taken for her “new boyfriend,” Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher, 34. “The dentist is, like, 80 years old. I literally screamed at the top of my lungs,” McCarthy said, laughing. “Is there an app? Like, ‘Uh-oh! I Effed Up!’”

Despite the embarrassing incident, McCarthy is excited about stripping down for Playboy again. “I did it 20 years ago in 1993. It was kind of on my bucket list to do it again before I turned 40. I shot, I’m proud of it, and it comes out in a couple of weeks,” she said. “I’m so tired of seeing just the 20-year-olds being considered sexy. I was like, MILFS are hot, too. I’m getting better with age.”
