The couple’s rep told US Weekly, “Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Channing Tatum are pleased to announce that they are expecting the birth of their first child next year.”
Tatum had spoken earlier this year about wanting to be a parent. He said, “I would hope so! I just don’t know when. When it’s meant to be, it will happen.”
Ironically, or perhaps strategically, the actor recently revealed his plans to take time out from being in front of the camera. Instead, he said he would like to focus on behind-the-scenes projects such as production. It looks like Tatum’s timing couldn’t have been better.
