Channing Tatum's Soothing Secret? Beatboxing
"As new mamas know, the baby is crying and you're like, 'What do I do to make her stop crying?'" Dewan-Tatum says. "All of the sudden he starts beatboxing and she starts cooing. I'm like what? I have been rocking her. I have been swaying her. I've been doing squats and he gets here and ... she would just fall asleep in his arms."
Channing Tatum has some serious daddy skills.
According to his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive is an “amazing” father to their daughter Everly, who was born May 31.
“It’s funny, he’s so sensitive,” Dewan-Tatum tells Ellen DeGeneres during Wednesday’s episode of her talk show. “He’s this really strong big guy in life but you give him this little baby and he’s like, ‘Oh my God … Is she going to drop? Am I doing everything okay?’ ”
Tatum, 33, has practical talents, too. “He’s the most amazing diaper changer,” The Witches of East End star says. “It’s the one thing he knows he can do. He’s like, ‘Let me get in there. Let me change those diapers … Here you go.'”

And if Everly is crying, Dad has an unconventional way to soothe his little girl.
“As new mamas know, the baby is crying and you’re like, ‘What do I do to make her stop crying?'” Dewan-Tatum says. “All of a sudden he starts beatboxing and she starts cooing. I’m like, ‘What?! I have been rocking her. I have been swaying her. I’ve been doing squats’ and he gets here and she would just fall asleep in his arms.”
Says Ellen, “I would like to see video of that.”
