Justin Timberlake revealed the messy side of parenthood

During a radio interview with Carson Daly, the Cry Me a River hit maker explained: "Here's what I'll say, all I know is I don't know what the hell I did before. Every day is just watching them grasp onto something and learn something new. It blows your mind. It's been an extremely humbling experience, and I've never had more poop on my person."And dealing with all of that has caused Justin to poke fun at people who aren't so willing to get their hands dirty – and insisted it's not something dog owners can relate to.
