Channing Tatum Reveals How He Told His Wife He Was A Stripper And How She Had The Best Response

Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan Tatum definitely have set the bar when it comes to adorable relationships.

It goes without saying that Channing is an overall great guy, talented actor, loving husband and adoring father.

We first fell in love with him in the Step Up movies, and later continued to enjoy him on screen in Dear John, and Magic Mike.

The actor was recently a guest host on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he pranked his daughter, Everly into thinking he'd eaten all her Halloween candy.

“That’s one of those wounds that will come back in years,” he quipped. “Kids are really quick to forgive, but I think probably around 13 it’ll come back, and she'll make me pay then.”

Channing has no problem doting on his wife of eight years and mother to their daughter.

“She is gorgeous. Look at her!” he said. “She's tall and she's lanky. That's how I like them.”

The 37-year-old actor revealed how he told his bride-to-be about how he used to be a male stripper.

Her reaction would surprise most.

“I think it was one of the very first like dinners we ever had together,” he told ET. “I don't know. I'm not shy about it. She was just like, ‘What?’ She needed to know just like everybody.”

That didn't seem to bother Jenna at all.

“Weirdly enough, girls ask less questions then guys do. Guys want to know everything about it like what how much? When? Were you naked?”

When his producing partner Reid Carolin asked him to come clean about how much money he made in his previous career Channing joked, “Sadly not enough. Like for what I was doing for the dollar, not enough of the dollars.”

He does know how to let loose and have some fun in his personal life, including an impromptu dance session in a gas station.  

Nothin better than a little dance party. Thank you, Beatrice 🙏🏽 s/o Sunoco Racing Logan Lucky #jimmylogansrun

He takes his open view about his past when thinking how how he wants to raise his daughter.

"I tried to imagine the things I'd want her to read that would help her understand men and sex and partnership better, and at that moment, I realized a strange thing," he wrote. "I don't want her looking to the outside world for answers. My highest hope for her is just that she has the fearlessness to always be her authentic self, no matter what she thinks men want her to be."

In addition to his wife and daughter, Channing has another special relationship in his life.

“One of the most meaningful relationships I have ever had in my life -- other than my daughter and my wife and my buddy Reid -- is with my dog LuLu,” he explained, adding of the War Dog documentary, “You'll get to see the bond that even goes to deeper depths in this sort of world.”
