Why Channing Tatum Released Daughter’s First Baby Photo

Sounds like Channing Tatum is a natural father. After just welcoming his first daughter with Jenna Dewan-Tatum, his protective side is already kicking in and it’s targeted at the paparazzi.

On Father’s Day, the family released the first photo of their infant Everly via Facebook and he had his reasons.

“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, told "ET" Canada.

“You know, here it is, that’s it. Now, let us be.”

Channing just wants to focus on daddy duties, which includes doing whatever it takes to make his wife and daughter comfortable.

“[Jenna's] tired. Those first few months, it’s just ridiculous, just [taxing],” he said. “All I can really do is just sit there and change diapers…and get them food. Whatever they want.”

Of the possibility of giving Everly a brother or sister sooner rather than later? “We could possibly have some Irish twins, I don’t know,” Channing joked.
