Channing Tatum and Wife Expecting Their First Child

Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum have gotten an early Christmas gift. The couple has announced they are expecting the birth of their first child.

In November, Tatum told People magazine, who recently named him the Sexiest Man Alive, that he was ready to start a family. "I'm ready; I think she's ready. The first number that pops into my head is three (children), but I just want one to be healthy and then we'll see where we go after that," he told the publication.

Channing and Jenna met on the set of the hit dance movie Step Up on 2006, and were married in 2009.

There is no word on how far along Jenna is, but it appears she is sporting a baby bump in photos taken this weekend at VH1's Divas 2012 event at The Shrine Auditorium. See photos below.
