Channing Tatum just won't stop gushing about his love of fatherhood on the 22 Jump Street press tour. The actor is even proud of getting his hands dirty with the less glamorous side of parenting!
He sure is one devoted father... Or just devoted to the fact that him talking about his daughter grabs [22 Jump Street](movie:434853) acres of column inches. Just sayin'! Cynicism aside, the beefcake actor does seem to be genuinely enthusiastic about raising his kid. Nobody would wax poetic about nappy changing unless they were truly a proud parent!
Before the birth of his daughter Everly last year the beefcake actor admitted;
I have never changed a diaper before, so I may need some help learning. I hope I don’t have any problems where the diaper falls off and the baby poops on the ground!
But, after a solid year of baby bowel movements, Channing Tatum is totally owning the diaper game. The actor proudly told People Magazine that;
I'm solid at changing a diaper now. If a guy isn't good at changing a diaper, I don’t know what he’s there for, really, ’cause they’re not there for the first seven months for any other reason than to do that because the mom is the end-all, be-all of everything
Not that his wriggly, active little daughter makes life any easier for her famous father though, Tatum explained that;
My daughter does not like sitting still, and I can do the whole thing while she’s crawling, standing up. I'm pretty solid at it!
After making a gruelling four movies back-to-back Tatum plans to devote some serious time to his family this year. Although he is currently writing [Magic Mike XXL](movie:452782) he won't be back on set for a while. The actor explained that;
I want to slow down and don’t want to miss my child’s first 10 years of her life. So it’s going to be nice to spend more time with the family
Am I too cynical to think Channing Tatum might be whipping out the parent card to win some publicity for 22 Jump Street?
Is Channing Tatum talking about his daughter so much all of a sudden for press inches?
