Looks like someone’s gonna be a big sister! Channing Tatum and wife Jenna Dewan Tatum won’t be the parents of an only child for long. In Touch can exclusively reveal that the duo is working hard to expand their family and get pregnant with baby No. 2!
The pair, who already are parents to four-year-old daughter Everly, “are working on baby No. 2,” a source tells In Touch. “Channing has been begging Jenna for years to give Everly a little brother, and Jenna is finally ready.” The source also reveals that, while Jenna, 36, “has got a limit” on the number of kids she wants to add to the brood, Channing, 37, “wants a dozen kids” with his wifey!
Channing has opened up in the past about how much being a father has impacted his life. Back in 2015, ahead of the release of Magic Mike XXL, he sat down with People to discuss his booming career and his role as a dad. “None of this is easy but at the same time it’s everything I would have ever wanted,” he said at the time. “Having a family and a little girl, it really makes things super clear.”
And, of course, he had to gush over his wife a bit. “We’re a good support system for each other,” he said. “We keep pushing each other to grow and be better. I don’t think I could do it any other way [than with her].”
Channing has also opened up about his own parents. He told Vanity Fair that their parenting style helped to make him the dad he is now. “They weren’t perfect,” he said. “I don’t know anyone who did have perfect 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.”
