Channing Tatum posted a photo of his and Jenna Dewan‘s new baby girl online on Father’s Day for the world to see, and some people wondered why he put it on Facebook rather than getting a hefty sum from People or some other entertainment rag. Well, the answer is simple: paparazzi assholes would just keep chasing them for pics of the kid, so they decided to put one out there themselves to get photographers off their backs.
From ET Canada:
“We didn’t want to go through a tabloid — we just wanted to let it out so paparazzi would stop trying to hound us,” Tatum, 33, tells ET Canada. “You know, here it is, that’s it. Now, let us be.”
Since showing off his 3-week-old to the world, the White House Down star admits the majority of daddy duty has been continuing on his supportive streak, always on hand to help out where needed.
“[Jenna’s] tired. Those first few months, it’s just ridiculous, just [taxing],” he says. “All I can really do is just sit there and change diapers … and get them food. Whatever they want.”
Fair enough – can’t argue with that one. The baby’s cute, they seem happy, our work is done here.
