Lucky, lucky Jenna Dewan-Tatum. Not only is she married to the hottest man alive, but their marriage seems so romantic and wonderful that I am squee-ing big-time (with a hint of jealousy) whenever I set eyes on snaps of the handsome pair.

We already know Channing can be sweet, funny, and of course, sexy as hell in his movie roles, but he's clearly all those things in real life too. So, how does a busy couple like the Tatum and Jenna (a star in her own right, too) balance work, love and parenting all at once without falling apart?

Well, psychology blog Psych Central have done a bit of fishing around and come up with these five reasons as to how the happy couple stay...well, happy!


1. Be willing to make sacrifices

C-Tates is a self-confessed former party boy, but having become a first-time father to baby Everly back in 2013, and taken on an increasing amount of serious movie roles - like Foxcatcher - he's learned to make sacrifices. And that means ditching the booze for the more important things to him...


2. Roll with it

Everyone hates being the subject of bad rumors. And given that Jenna and Tatum are at the forefront of Hollywood, it goes without saying that the couple probably encounter their fair share. But they don't let gossip about their personal and private lives aggravate their relationship and, when Tatum was the subject of those bisexual rumors, he used it to advantage - any promotion is good promotion, right?


3. Keep the cute alive

Tatum admitted that he's uncomfortable watching his wife's love scenes. "I mean, she’s a very sexy individual, which is obviously why I’m with her…there are many reasons!" Tatum reflected on the Witches of East End star. "But that is definitely very high on the list. She watches when I do love scenes too, and we’ve had to kind of find our way with it. She’ll cover my eyes and I’ll cover hers. It’s all in good fun."

That's love.


4. Be silly and romantic

The gorgeous pair implement good, wholesome fun into everyday activities, like changing baby Everly's diapers! "Dance battles do sort of happen, to be honest," Tatum has said. "When we wake up in the morning, we put on music, and while Everly’s eating we dance and it just starts to get stupid. Changing the baby is an intermission — but our daughter hates getting her diaper changed, so it’s almost like a break-dancing battle to get it on her. As soon as you lay her down, she’s bridging out of it and doing some jiu-jitsu windmill. It’s pretty intense."


5. Remember that first kiss

One reason couples find themselves falling out of love is because they forget why they joined together in the first place. But the Step Up star often reminisces about sharing his first kiss with his future wife as they filmed scenes for the flick.

"We were basically together in the movie," he recalled. "It’s interesting now, because we can watch it and see; we can go, 'Oh, wow, that was actually our first real kiss.' As soon as the movie wrapped, we went back to L.A. and were together, and together ever since — never broken up. That’s nine years."


Awww. I repeat, AWWWWWW.


Are Jenna and Tatum the cutest couple EVER, or WHAT!?
