Jenna Dewan-Tatum says her 21-month-old daughter Everly has acquired the gift of the gab.

“She’s talking a lot more,” the actress, 34, said at the Old Navy, On The Road event at Fig & Olive in L.A. on Saturday. “Her new favorite thing is to tell me, ‘Mommy, I want down,’ but it’s never an appropriate time. We’ll be walking down the street and I’m like, ‘No Everly, you can’t [sit] down here.’ ”

It’s just that Everly likes to do her own thing, the actress explains.

“She’s a go-against-the-grain kind of girl, which I love,” says Dewan-Tatum. “I just want her to be a confident, happy, passionate girl who feels comfortable in her skin and is able to pursue her dreams.”

And the best way to achieve this, according to Dewan-Tatum, is by spending as much time as possible with her little one.

One look at Jenna Dewan-Tatum and it’s hard to fathom the fact that it has only been 18 months since she gave birth to her first child, daughter Everly.

But the 34-year-old actress insists that it is just the result of much hard work.

“I work out with Jen Johnson, this trainer that I’ve worked out with forever who does a dance-based training,” Dewan-Tatum told PEOPLE while attending the Hollywood Reporter‘s Women in Entertainment Breakfast.

“It’s awesome. It’s so hard. Everyone I brought to it says it’s the hardest workout they’ve ever done.”

But even the demanding certified trainer has nothing on Dewan-Tatum’s other exercise partner.

She’s a very healthy vegan. He’s a former Sexiest Man Alive meat eater.

And their 1-year-old daughter has yet to decide for herself what makes it on her plate.

But actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum says the decision will eventually belong to their baby girl — and the couple will support Everly either way.

“I don’t believe in forcing anyone into anything, but I’ll do my best to introduce her to healthy eating habits,” she tells the July/August issue of Natural Health magazine.

The first-time mom’s main priority is ensuring she creates a positive — and fun — approach to good nutrition.

“We have a little garden so I’ll say, ‘Let’s go pick the vegetables we’re going to eat tonight,'” the Witches of East End star, 33, shares. “My pediatrician believes it’s completely healthy and possible to have a vegan child and I think that’s amazing.”

Channing Tatum is a man of many talents.

He can dance, wield a gun and do his own stunt work. But can he change a diaper?

Before the birth of his daughter, Everly, last year, the actor told PEOPLE, “I have never changed a diaper before, so I may need some help learning. I hope I don’t have any problems where the diaper falls off and the baby poops on the ground.”

But now that Everly just celebrated her first birthday, the doting dad says he has mastered the tasks.

“I’m solid at changing a diaper now,” Tatum, 34, proudly told PEOPLE at the 22 Jump Street press day on Thursday.

“If a guy isn’t good at changing a diaper, I don’t know what he’s there for, really, ’cause they’re not there for the first seven months for any other reason than to do that because the mom is the end-all, be-all of everything.”
