Channing Tatum says he is 'very fat and happy' at the moment

08 February 2014, 13:44

Los Angeles - Channing Tatum is happy to have gained a lot of weight.

The Magic Mike star, who is well known for his chiselled physique and was voted the Sexiest Man Alive in 2012, has stopped working out so he can spend more time with his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, and their eight-month-old daughter, Everly.

When teased about always being asked to take his clothes off, the 33-year-old actor told The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday: "You definitely don't want that right now.

"Right now - what me and my wife [Jenna Dewan Tatum] like to call it, I am very 'fappy.' I'm very fat and happy right now (...) I've been working for two straight years, and now it's some really needed downtime."

Channing is currently recording vocals for the upcoming animated movie, The Book of Life.

The actor is glad to have more time to watch Everly develop.

He gushed: "Ah, man. She's 8 months old now. She's saying 'Da, da, da, da, da.' I don't think she knows what it means just yet, but it doesn't matter."

Jenna, 33, previously said that Everly is a huge fan of Drake and Channing admitted she is very picky when it comes to lullabies.

He said: "She actually has better taste in music than I think I do, because she will only fall asleep to really good music. She might be conceited, I'm not sure but (...) Prince's The Most Beautiful Girl in the World, she loves falling asleep to that."
