Channing Tatum and wife reveal baby daughter's name
Channing Tatum and his wife, actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum, have revealed the name and birth date of their baby girl.
Both Tatum and his wife wrote about their daughter's birth on their official websites and said, "Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Channing Tatum are thrilled to announce the birth of their daughter, Everly Tatum, who was born on May 31st in London. Sending love and light to Chan, Jenna, and Ms. Everly!"
Their daughter's birth was initially reported on Monday, June 3. It is the first child for the couple. Tatum is currently in London shooting the film "Jupiter Ascending" with Mila Kunis.
Tatum and his wife announced her pregnancy in December and the two were seen at the red carpet of the Oscars in February with Tatum rubbing his wife's stomach. The couple met on the set of their film "Step-Up" in 2006 and wed in 2009.
Tatum also appears on the cover of (Warning: Interview contains expletives) Vanity Fair's July 2013 issue. In it the actor talks about getting ready to become a parent as well as learning from his own parents.
"I don't think you can prepare. It's a bit of a freestyle," Tatum told the magazine about gearing up for parenthood.
"They weren't perfect. I don't know anyone who did have perfect parents," Tatum said of his own parents. "It's provided me with lessons I'll try to improve upon when I'm up to bat. I'm just going to be a good friend to my kid. One thing I definitely want to change is that whole 'I don't want you to make the same mistakes' mentality. My dad didn't have much money growing up; he didn't have much of an education. He forced that on me, and I didn't want it."
Tatum also talks about the struggles he had learning as a child and claims he had negative experiences with pharmaceutical drugs geared toward treating learning disorders.
"I truly believe some people need medication," he told Vanity Fair. "I did not. I did better at school when I was on it, but it made me a zombie. You become obsessive. Dexedrine, Adderall. It's like any other drug. It's like coke, or crystal meth. The more you do, the less it works."
