MySQL CURRENT_TIMESTAMP on create and on update

I want to define table which will have 2 TIMESTAMP fields, someting like this:

CREATE TABLE `msgs` (
`id` INT PRIMARY KEY AUTO_INCREMENT,
`msg` VARCHAR(256),
`ts_create` TIMESTAMP DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
`ts_update` TIMESTAMP DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP ON UPDATE CURRENT_TIMESTAMP
)

How to do this avoiding error:

ERROR 1293 (HY000): Incorrect table definition; there can be only one TIMESTAMP column with CURRENT_TIMESTAMP in DEFAULT or ON UPDATE clause

Point is to keep desired behavior of ts_create and ts_update in table schema.

Guess this is a old post but actually i guess mysql supports 2 TIMESTAMP in its recent editions mysql 5.6.25 thats what im using as of now.
