The scene then pans to the race car driver calling up a friend who had it done, insisting that it didn't hurt, it's "just more awkward than anything."

The duo, who have Alessi, 2, and 7-month-old twins Senna and Lux, explained it was "a joint decision," though Luyendyk pointed out that since he's 40, he's the one who made it clear that he doesn't want to have more kids because he'd "be an old dad."

However, he noted that they are open to adopting in the future if they change their minds.

The dad-of-three then went into details about the procedure, revealing that it hurt even though they numb the area. Once at the doctor's office, his anxiety got so bad that he started sweating profusely and tore at his hair — though he acknowledged that he is a "bit squeamish" than most.

Luckily, his recovery went smoothly. After three days of rest, "I feel totally normal," said Luyendyk. "I feel great. It's such a short amount of time when you're in pain. Just on ibuprofen."

Overall, he estimated that the most painful part lasted about 15 to 20 minutes.

"I will say, after it's all said and done, it does make you soak in the time we have now with the little babies. Because now we know, 100 percent, positively, there will be no more little babies in the future," he explained. "Our little family will stay our little family. Unless we adopt..."
