Multiple sources reveal the gender of Tatum and Dewan's newborn, saying it's a girl for the 'Magic Mike' actor and his actress wife.
The gender of Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan's newborn is revealed. Multiple sources tell Us Weekly that the celebrity couple welcomed a daughter. Dewan allegedly gave birth to their first child at a private London hospital on Thursday, May 30. The name for their little one is not yet revealed.
Jamie Foxx, who played President of the United States and shared screen with Tatum in "White House Down", sent them his congratulatory message on Twitte, "Big luv 2 my @WHD costar @channingtatum + wife @jennaldewan + their new baby. Welcome 2 the world little Tatum."
Tatum and Dewan, 32, met on the set of 2006's dance movie "Step Up". They got married in 2009 after a year of engagement and had made no secret of their desire to have a child. They announced her pregnancy last December.
He has been staying in London for the past few months due to work commitment, and he has taken his wife with him. "We're going to actually have the baby in London while I'm shooting, and then there will be no downtime whatsoever after that," he told Ryan Seacrest.
The "Magic Mike" hunk was in town to film his new movie "Jupiter Ascending". He once joked to Jimmy Kimmel that he's hoping having his child abroad wouldn't affect the kid's speech. "I hope it doesn't just pop out with a weird accent," he said.
In a separate interview, Dewan said they would do just fine although they're both first-time parents. "We have two dogs, so we've had some practice! And as soon as this baby comes into the world, Channing and I will figure it out real fast," she reasoned.
In a different chat, she talked about embracing her pregnancy curves, "I thought my body was going to change so quickly with pregnancy that I'd freak out. But it was really gradual," adding, "There's a reason women are pregnant for nine months; by the end, you're ready to have this baby."
Of her husband, she had nothing but praise for him, "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.' "
Tatum will next head to Chicago as production for his movie is moved there next month, while Dewan will get back to work to film Lifetime's TV series "Witches of East End". Regardless of their tight schedule, "the baby will get top billing as far as priorities go," a source says.
"Channing is going to be the most adorable hands-on daddy ever and do whatever is necessary to make sure Jenna can balance it all."
