Channing and Jenna Dewan-Tatum Welcome Daughter Everly

Channing Tatum is now officially the Sexiest Dad Alive.

He and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum welcomed daughter Everly on Friday, May 31 in London, they announced on their respective websites.

Both parents posted “Welcome to the World!” with the message: “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!”

It is the first child for the couple, who wed in 2009 after meeting on the set of Step Up. They announced their pregnancy in December.

Everly arrived in London, where the couple has been residing while Tatum, 33, films Jupiter Ascending with Mila Kunis.

In April, Dewan-Tatum, 32, told Glamour her husband has been a supportive-bordering-on-indulgent pregnancy partner.

“Channing has been great. He takes the route of no confrontation, just support, saying things like, ‘Do whatever you want! What do you want to eat? I’m going to leave it up to you,'” she said.

Meanwhile, the actor admitted he’s clueless when it comes to one key aspect of parenting — diaper duty.

“I have never changed a diaper before, so I may need some help learning,” Tatum told PEOPLE earlier this year. “I don’t have friends who have kids, so it’s going to be an interesting experience to learn how to change a diaper. I hope I don’t have any problems where the diaper falls off and the baby poops on the ground.”

Good luck with that, Dad!

Cameron on

Congratulations! Your child has two great parents and the love of two great parents.

Dixie on

Congratulations to this truly beautiful couple. What a lucky baby!

Ari on

Finally! Congrats to Channing and Jenna on the birth of their baby. They’ll do just great. Can’t wait to find out if it’s a girl or boy.

Kim on

I thought about 4-6 months ago on a late night talk show that he slipped and said she ( as in a girl) when discussing the baby. I know I am not the only person who heard that.

aleshamom4 on

What a Lucky baby!! Need a Nanny? Congrats, here’s to a long, happy life to all 🙂 ❤

mindy on

While I don’t have any interest in reading a birth announcement with no details, I can appreciate that they must have withheld this information to make sure that their families all get the scoop before the public.

i need a name on

I love this Family !!!

Annie on

I sure hope the baby didn’t inherit his rat-like ears!

PG on

They are awesome! Congrats and best of luck to them<3

Debs on

Boy or girl..what the heck is the “big” secret..everyone is going to find out sooner or later..geez these celebrities crack me up.

Anonymous on

Yay! They seem like a lovely couple, and you don’t hear about any drama from them. I’m sure they are going to be fabulous parents to a gorgeous baby!

AMY on

He’s definately NOT the sexiest Dad Alive…..he’s cute but not that far up the ladder. Congrats to him and his wife, but by the way she was carrying it is going to be a girl!

stef on

I predict an exclusive magazine cover this week either for People or US magazine with the first photos/name, etc. (before I get slammed, I’m NOT saying they’re obligated to tell the public anything, but I think they WILL indeed share the name/photos on an exclusive magazine cover story) Congratulations to the new parents!

Kat on

The only relation that I don’t want to have with Channing Tatum is him as my father! Anything else works for me!

Linda on

Congrats to Mom an Dad on the birth of their baby girl!

He is scrumptious.

Cindy on

I would NOT want to be the guy who comes to take this girl out on a date! Can you imagine Channing Tatum answering the door? On the other hand, I’m sure she’ll have daddy wrapped around her little finger!

Good luck and congrats to them both!

I knew it was a girl from the time she announced she was expecting. I could just tell.

YAY!!!!! A GIRL!!!!! 😀 I’m SOOOOOO happy for Channing and Jenna! All along I hoped they’d have a girl! I am sure she will be gorgeous and will be Daddy’s Little Girl forever! Congrats to them! 🙂

Congrats! I love this couple!

Wonderful news!

dmarie217 on

What a very lucky girl! Good for them…they seem pretty grounded for celebs…well wishes!

savannah on

As if he wasn’t already hot enough…now he’ll be that hot guy with a baby! Jeeeepers! LOL. Congrats to them both, they seem really down to earth and not pushing themselves or their relationship into the spotlight, I’m sure they’ll keep their baby as private as possible.

Kresta on

Welcome to little Everly Tatum.

Marlie on

Awww so happy for them! Baby is called Everly apparently! It’s on his official web page!

Carolyn on

Dont understand the sexiest man title. He’s a nice looking man, but nothing out of the ordinary. And Everly?

Ashley on

Love the name Everly! Unique but not too out there.

heather on

That’s one lucky little girl.

Kim on

Congrats Channing and Jenna!

Does anyone else find it kind of a funny coincidence that Cam Gigandet’s daughter’s name is Everleigh? Cam has always reminded me a bit of Channing. Both are very easy on the eyes. 😉

Amy on

What an adorable name! Congrats to them on their new bundle of joy 🙂

Nona on

I don’t get the appeal of either. Neither of them is GORGEOUS. They are attractive people, but without all the glam, no one would give them a second look.

Amy on

Love the name Everly. We just had our baby on May 12th and Everly was our “girl name” but we had a boy instead.

missy on

Love Everly even though it’s getting really popular!

Mary J. Smith on

Anyone who references “love and light’ instead of prayers doesn’t believe in the one true God. I’m sorry for them. They have everything material… wealth, fame, beauty… but are separated from Jesus, which means they won’t go to Heaven. I hope people will pray that this baby will help them find their lost way as it does for countless other new parents who seek the Lord after receiving such a blessing.

Kacie on

Get a life!

Guest with 3 Names on

Pretty name. I wouldn’t have thought of it. Am a little weary of hearing of the term “diaper duty” and not knowing how to change one. I know its meant to be lighthearted, but it is old.

Shanty on

Welcome to the world, Everly!

May you have a blessed life by having these perfect parents… 🙂

Emry on

seriously? poor thing.

Tiffany on

Pretty name 🙂

cara on

Congrats to Mom and Dad and their new little Tatum Tot.

Mandy on

Mary J Smith – I’m pretty sure you have no idea what either one of these people believe unless you know them personally. For you to read into that message and find a way to judge them and assume they “aren’t going to Heaven” just shows why religion turns off so many people. Worry about yourself and your narrow minded beliefs, why don’t you?

Sharon on

I agree, Mandy. She needs to shut up and get a life…im pretty sure she doesnt know them personally so she has no right to comment.

Sarah on

I love the name Everly. It’s different but not bizarre. Congrats to the happy family!

Jess on

Congrats to them, I love the name Everly!

dancer92136 on

Love, Love, Love that name. Beautiful.

devinsnona on

Congrats! Love her name!

Mom on

Omg I am happy and mad. My daughter is 4 and her name is Ever-Lee it is a family name and we did it to be unique. My husband and I have the most common names ever. Great name but I don’t want it to be the next big name. Congrats to them and baby Everly.

Posh66 on

That’s quite a pretty name! Different, but not wacky Hollywood different.

I predict a million ovaries exploding worldwide the day the first photo of Channing Tatum holding his baby is published. :0P

Debs on

Love the name…

Rachel on

christina.. you are true idiot. you think he is hot so his baby is the luckiest in the world? he has admitted he knows nothing about babies, probably will rarely be around due to his career. but yes he beats out EVERY OTHER FATHER. unreal moron

Kelly on

aww..congrats to the new family!!! I love the name Everly!!!

Rachel on

mary j smith… LOL. loon. where is this proof that your invisible promise exists? YOU believe in a ridiculous fairy tale that luckily most people are not realizing is crap. religious fanatics are insane and i laugh at them for wasting their lives, but when you attack others and say two people wont go to a fake place because they dont believe in your warped views, you are a sick sick woman. very mentally ill. but of course its usually the mentally ill who “find” religion as a way to avoid their problems.. so so very sad.

Sophia on

Congratulations to this beautiful new family 🙂 LOVE the name Everly….so pretty.

Angela on

Oh Everly, my number one most favorite girl name ever. I have 2 boys and we won’t be trying for a girl, but I sure would’ve loved to use that name.

Janet on

Everly was going to be my baby’s name if I had a girl, but I was lucky enough to have a boy 🙂

boohoobytch on

aww, congrats to them

Kacie on

Mandy you took the words out of my mouth! 🙂

Gina on

Everly is a beautiful name! I can’t wait to see some pics of the little girl.

bkable on

OMG! I love that name! Its different but still sounds beautiful!

Love these two!! Congratulations!

kay on

I don’t understand why a man would say he hasn’t ever changed a diaper and needs someone to teach him??? Guy, you’ve had 9 months for someone to teach you!! Otherwise congrats!

Jesse on

Ignore the troll. Most likely doesn’t even believe in religion and is just trying to start arguments. Ignore them it’s the best thing. They just want to get a rise out of all of us. Let’s not give it to them.

ang on

So cute! Congratulations!

Zip on

None of you picked up on her NOT wanting to deliver in America and have their kid be American. Smart couple.

Gina on

Beautiful name. Congrats!

ella on

Gorgeous name, and probably a gorgeous baby! Congratulations to the parents!

Catca on

Umm @Zip, both the child’s parents are American so the child is an American citizen even though born abroad. She had her baby in London because she and Channing are living there right now while he is filming a movie, not because she is actively choosing against America. There simply is nothing controversial, much as you’d like to stir something up.

Roberta on

As a long time subscriber to your great magazine let me just say this. I’m crossing my fingers that if “official” photos are released of little Everly that People has them!

Carrow on

Congratulations! Unique name. Her names sound like two first names =)

mama3 on

awww, pretty name!! congrats on your sweet babe!!

Brooklyn on

Everly is one of my favourite names! It’s been on my ‘list’ for a few years, though I spell it Everleigh.

Congrats to them!

Ayla on

It’s a cute name. Pretty similar to Cam Gigandets daughter Everleigh. Everly, Everleigh, Ever, etc. This name is getting more and more popular ;). Anyway, it’s their decision.

Congratulations Channing and Jenna!

Isabel on

Zip, you do realize she’s still an American citizen, right? Please check your facts before you look like an even bigger idiot.

Lola on

Yay for babies! 1) Love the name Everly! 2) Like that her last name is only “Tatum.” (No need to be saddled w/ hyphenation so soon in life–in my humble opinion.) 3) Jesus IS love and light, y’all! 😉 CONGRATULATIONS!

Emily on

That is such a sweet name! When I was pregnant last year, before I knew I was having a boy, my girl name was Lennon Everly. I love that name.

Congrats to them both on the birth of their first child. A daughter is a beautiful gift! 🙂

Cy on

Everly…sounds like an adjective. I think Eve Tatum is better. Oh well, they are the parents and they get to choose the name. 🙂

kjc on

Love this name, but I’d spell it Everley. If my baby had been born a girl 2 years ago, this would have been her name, but we had a lovely little boy instead.

It has remained at the top of my list for girls names for if we are to have another baby… but after hearing how popular it has become, I’m not so sure it will stay there. It is such a beautiful name, in my opionion.

Congrats on the baby. I’ve never seen Channing in anything, so I don’t get all the hype surronding him, but another

j dan on

Congrats to them both.

I wonder if their daughter will look like him? I have a 3 yr old boys who could pass as his son. Really weird! My son looks nothing like my husband or me. But looks like channing with blonde hair. My husband is the one who pointed it out too me. Have you been sleeping with him? My response ” don’t I wish”. LOL! Hello he is handsome!

Hope they enjoy the newest family member and I think that is a pretty name.

kristinbethea on

I’m due in August and my little girl’s name will be Everleigh. I’m a little upset that this is the name the Tatums chose, and now it’s going to get a spike in popularity because they’re famous. But I’m not changing my daughter’s name! She is Everleigh to me!

Mimi on

Another male sounding name for a girl. Ok now somebody name their son Priscilla!

Sharon on

I already commented before the name was announced but had to comment again!! I adore the name Everly..i knew they would give her a beautiful name! Congrats again to one of the most beautiful couples EVER!!

KIM on

i LOVE channing & his wife i think they will be GREAT parents i have two little girls & they are my life & the best things that ever happen to me. im excited for them & their family & the adventure they are about endure

Ivy. on

What a lovely name ! 🙂

Tangerine on

My daughter was born the exact same day! How exciting! We named our little girl Lucille Elise

Karateleshi80 on

Love the name. What a hot daddy 🙂 What’s with the hot daddies and Everly’s/Everleigh’s? (Cam Cigadet’s is called Everleigh). I wonder what her middle name is?

jay on

Ahhh Mary J. Smith…it is people like you that made me stop practicing catholicism and not baptize my daughter. I refuse to let her grow up being close-minded and i refuse to let her grow up thinking preaching hate is ok as long as there is a bible to back it up.

Good luck in life.

Julesy on

Not crazy about the baby’s name but very happy for the lovely couple.

Guest on

What a gorgeous name. Very sweet and unique.

Alecia on

Congrats!! I know this baby will be gorgeous and I love the name Everly!! So excited for Channing and Jenna!!

Kriddle on

Congrats to the Tatum’s! And if he needs help learning how to change a diaper, Send me there to him I have plenty of practice! No other ulterior motive at all 😉 That little girl is beautiful for sure, look at her Dad and Mom! Channing is really the sexiest dad alive!

Hopefully she’ll take after mama…she’s very pretty!
