Tatum is featured in the May 2021 issue of Parents magazine, where he talks about co-parenting his 7-year-old daughter, Everly, with ex-wife Jenna Dewan. He admits he does have certain apprehensions when it comes to raising his only child.

I want dads not to be afraid to go into their daughter’s world and discover who they are.

– Channing Tatum

The actor tells Parents that when he became a single father, he had a lot of fear about connecting to his daughter in every way that a little girl might want. He didn’t wear nail polish nor knows how to braid hair. But now he knows how to do both.

I paint my face, I wear tutus – rarely am I around the house without some sort of costume on. 

I jumped with both feet into this magical world, and I was rewarded with a kind of love that I don’t think I would have ever been able to have otherwise.

– Channing Tatum

The Magic Mike actor said that amazing bond he has created with his daughter Everly over the years is actually what inspired him to create his first-ever picture book, “The One and Only Sparkella”, which will debut on May 4th.


Tatum explains the picture book that is just like the character ‘Sparkella,’ his daughter Evie loves to play tricks, wear crazy outfits, and be different from everyone. “She’s bold, beautiful, and magical in every way,” said the actor.
