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.

We’re apparently all about the baby folk here at Evil Beet lately, and Kimye isn’t the only one who’s entered the world in recent weeks. Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan also welcomed their first child, a little girl named Everly. SO CUTE. They shared the first photo on Father’s Day on both of their Facebook pages, as you do.
That baby’s pretty cute, although all babies sorta look the same when you first have them, so she doesn’t really look like anything but a baby. But yay! Babies and fathers and mothers, oh my!

Channing Tatum and wife Jenna Dewan have welcomed their first child together, woot woot. The baby was born in London last Thursday where they’re filming Jupiter Ascending, but there’s not much info besides that. Here’s the US Weekly “report”:
Add Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum to the list of hot Hollywood parents! The couple welcomed their first child together in London on Thursday, May 30, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm. The bundle of joy’s gender is not yet known.
Tatum, 33, and Dewan-Tatum, 32, announced they were expecting their first child in December. The couple met on the set of Step Up in 2006, and tied the knot in July 2009.
Well, that’s exciting. I don’t know why, but it’s always surprising to hear that people like Channing Tatum are married. I’m not exactly sure why – I don’t really know anything about him, but maybe my brain is hardwired into the Magic Mike trailer, so I just see all these dudes as perpetual bachelors.
In any case, congrats to the new mom and dad.

My name is Bobby and I will be your new celebrity gossip writer as of the beginning of February. I know that you are going to be ruthlessly critical, and I expect nothing less. Until recently, I, too, used to tear apart celebrities and authors alike in the comments, but consider yourselves warned! To get this job I had to bribe and coerce and blackmail people, and when that didn’t work, I sent Sarah a severed horse head, so no funny business.
Just kidding. I am, in fact, quite harmless. My specialties include photography, rock and roll music, and kittens*, and my goal for this year is to somehow manage to work the word idempotent in a sentence. It also happens that I am in a sort of a Jessica Simpson situation at the moment – not even nine months after I had my first baby, my husband went ahead and knocked me up again. This very much leads me to the theme of my very first post for Evil Beet – pregnant celebrities!
So without further ado, here’s a list of 12 celebs who will be procreating at various times this year (in no particular order):
There was no love lost between Evan and, well, almost everyone on Evil Beet so far, but I like the gal ever since I saw her in Thirteen. She is expecting her first child with husband Jamie Bell sometime in the Summer.
2. Kristen Bell
The sloth-loving Kristen Bell is preggers with her first child from Dax Shepard, and if crying uncontrollably at the sight of sloths isn’t a good enough reason to like her, Kristen is also outspoken on issues like same sex marriage and animal welfare. She’s due in the Spring.
3. Amber Rose
Model Amber Rose is expecting a very laid back (and possibly tattooed) child with Wiz Khalifa, and is ready to pop any minute, forever changing the the way her vagina photographs.
4. Jenna Dewan-Tatum
I don’t have any idea who she is, but they say her husband is hot so there you go.
Former Playboy bunny/stripper/reality star Madison, known mainly for her utter lack of style, is expecting a girl in March. For the delivery, she’s rumored to either wear a mustard yellow floral nylon dress, or nothing.
Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge had a rough first trimester but she seems fine now, unless you refer to the latest portrait of her, in which case she doesn’t. I really hope Kate puts on some weight during this pregnancy; it makes me feel uneasy watching her right now. She looks … sort of malnourished. Or maybe I’m just jealous because I know I’ll turn to a whale long before I reach full term. A Great Blue Whale.
7. Sophie Dahl
Dahl is pregnant with her second child, but I have a feeling that despite of being Roald Dahl’s granddaughter and a former plus-size model, many of you might not consider Sophie a celebrity. If that’s the case, let me remind you that she was on the cover of Vogue, like, 500 times, and that makes her at least more famous than you and I. Besides, you gotta love how much taller she is than her husband.
8. Busy Philipps
I LOVE Busy. She is so pretty and real, and she always steals the show even though she’s not necessarily in the A-list headlines all the time.
This here British celebrity who is famous for being famous is going to have another baby boy, and oh! god. She intends on naming him Phaedra. Let us all roll our eyes on a count of three.
10. Malin Akerman
11. Jessica Simpson
I suspect that Jessica actually learned the trick of getting pregnant so soon after giving birth from Britney, but then again Jessica’s fiance is quite cute and I don’t see why the hell not. Jess is going to have a boy.
12. Kim Kardashian
And finally, the worst, most terrible celebrity couple, Kimye. Typing this nauseates me, so I’m just going to give you a funny picture of Kim and leave it there. There’s nothing much to say about it anyways, except maybe to loosely quote Chelsea Handler who predicted that, considering its parents, this baby will be “tanned and very hairy.”
*I’m sure you’ll be missing Emily’s kittens so I promise to post photos of mine as often as I can.

The actor and his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum ”are pleased to announce that they are expecting the birth of their first child next year,” reps for the couple confirm to PEOPLE exclusively.
Crowned PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive in November, the Magic Mike star admitted he and the American Horror Story: Asylum actress, both 32, had babies on the brain, adding a family wasn’t too far off in their future.
“I’m ready; I think she’s ready,” Tatum told PEOPLE recently. “The first number that pops into my head is three, but I just want one to be healthy and then we’ll see where we go after that.”
Left up to Tatum, the couple — who wed in Malibu in 2009 — would be going the distance … all the way into the double digits. “It’s really easy for us guys to say, ‘I want like 15 kids,’” he noted. “Jenna will be like, ‘Well you better get another wife!’
Hear that, guys? Hear it? It’s the collective screams and groans of a million disappointed women who actually, for whatever reason, thought they stood a chance with the ‘Dear John’ actor.
Congratulations to the new family!

So, I’m flipping through the news and I see a headline mentioning “Channing Tatum” and “striptease.” Because I am so obsessed lately with watching West Wing reruns (and pining for Aaron Sorkin), in my head when I read “Channing Tatum” I thought “Stockard Channing” and then I pictured the West Wing‘s First Lady grinding on a pole, Miley-style. So that was funny.
But not anywhere near as funny as the actual Channing Tatum striptease. Apparently about 10 years ago he worked for an all-male revue (with a strict no-nudity policy). This is just like anything you’d see at a standard Chippendale’s show — definitely sexy, but mostly fun and laughable and good-timey and not at all imbued with the intensity and sexuality of a female strip joint.
But ladies — don’t think you’re going to get a piece of Channing again any time soon. He married his Step Up co-star and longtime girlfriend Jenna Dewan in July.
