Instead, the proud new parents debuted daughter Everly on their own terms with a family portrait posted to Facebook on Father’s Day.
“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, tells ET Canada. “You know, here it is, that’s it. Now, let us be.”
Since showing off his 3-week-old to the world, the White House Down star admits the majority of daddy duty has been continuing on his supportive streak, always on hand to help out where needed.
“[Jenna’s] tired. Those first few months, it’s just ridiculous, just [taxing],” he says. “All I can really do is just sit there and change diapers … and get them food. Whatever they want.”
As for the “amazing” feeling of welcoming his first child? Well, the couple may be experiencing those emotions once again — sooner rather than later. “We could possibly have some Irish twins, I don’t know, ” Tatum jokes.
