insert data into child table failing

Hi guys,
I have 2 tables profiles and address. profiles has the fields pid (Primary Key), surname, firstname. address has the fields addid (Primary Key), pid (foreign key), phone.

pid in table address references pid in table profiles and it its a foreign key in table address.

I insert data into profiles before i insert into address. I have an after insert on trigger as shown below;

create trigger ai_patient_profile_fer after insert on profile for each row
\d //
insert into address set pid =;

When i try to insert data into address to fill in the phone column it fails.

Some one please advise me on the way forward. Should i use an UPDATE statement instead of INSERT. Please show me some sample code of how this is done, since i have been trying for so long without success. I am newbie to MySQL. Thanks.

Thank you all in advance.
