He’s experienced a meteoric rise to fame thanks to his charming disposition and boyish good looks, and now Channing Tatum has been named People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2012.
The “Magic Mike” hunk told the magazine that it was difficult to believe the news- “My first thought was, ‘Y’all are messing with me. I told [my wife] Jenna [Dewan-Tatum] after we’d been in the bathtub washing our dogs because they’d gotten skunked.”
In fact, Channing’s new title has earned him a new moniker around the house- “Yeah, she calls me [the Sexiest Man Alive] now!”
Married since 2009, Channing and Jenna are eyeing the prospect of family expansion. "I'm ready; I think she's ready. 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."
Tatum continued, "It’s really easy for us guys to say, 'I want like 15 kids.’ Jenna will be like, 'Well you better get another wife!'"
As for his fabulous physique, Channing shared, "I like to be lean. If I get too bulky I can't move well and I like to move. When I'm not training, I get really round and soft."
Jenna chimed in, "People know him to be fun and sexy, but they don't know how emotionally deep and spiritually open he is. He is such an open-hearted person; what you see is what you get."
