(ABC News)-Reports that Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum welcomed their daughter have been circulating since Sunday, but now the couple has officially confirmed the happy news and added one big detail: The little girl’s name is Everly.
“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,” reads a statement on the actor’s official website. “Sending love and light to Chan, Jenna and Ms. Everly!”
The reigning “Sexiest Man Alive” and his “Step Up” co-star announced their pregnancy in December after four years of marriage.
Tatum previously revealed that the baby would be delivered in London due to his filming schedule for “Jupiter Ascending.” “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 new daddy said he wants a lot of kids, but acknowledged that it’s not entirely up to him.
“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,” he told People magazine. “It’s really easy for us guys to say, ‘I want like 15 kids.’ Jenna will be like, ‘Well you better get another wife!’”
All joking aside, Dewan-Tatum seemed pretty relaxed about how they’d take to parenthood.
“Who knows what kind of parents we’ll be? We have two dogs, so we’ve had some practice!” she said. “And as soon as this baby comes into the world, Channing and I will figure it out real fast.”
