Channing Tatum’s next big role: Dad!
The 32-year-old actor and his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum “are pleased to announce that they are expecting the birth of their first child next year,” their reps confirmed.
It’s been a big year for Tatum, who starred in Magic Mike and was voted PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive in November.
But this latest news isn’t entirely out of left field. In a recent interview with the magazine, he opened up about the couple’s desire to have kids.
“I’m ready; I think she’s ready,” he said. “The first number that pops into my head is three, but I just want one to be healthy and then we’ll see where we go after that.”
The two met while co-starring in the 2006 movie “Step Up.” Their sizzling on-screen chemistry apparently wasn’t all acting… they started dating soon after and were married in July 2009.
Dewan-Tatum, 32, showed off her growing baby bump at VH1’s “Divas” show taping, walking the red carpet in a flowing blue dress.
One thing is for sure – this baby is going to be blessed with some really good-looking genes!
