The “Magic Mike” star and his dancer/actress wife got their Christmas gift a little early this year!
Channing and Jenna’s rep said in a statement, “(The Tatums) are pleased to announce that they are expecting the birth of their first child next year.”
The couple has never made it a secret that they planned to start a family. In his interview last month, when he was crowed the Sexiest Man Alive, Channing said, “I’m ready; I think she’s ready. The first number that pops into my head is three (children), but I just want one to be healthy and then we’ll see where we go after that.”
Jenna echoed his thoughts on future babies, saying, “I would hope so! I just don’t know when. When it’s meant to be, it will happen.”
An insider close to Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum said, “It was a total surprise”.
The 32-year-old actor will be taking an entire year off from his career to be with his pregnant wife and their upcoming bundle of joy, due sometime in 2013.
Channing and Jenna met in 2006 on the set of their dance movie “Step Up”. They tied the knot in California three years later in 2009.
