Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan welcomed a daughter in London last week

I’m kind of surprised that Jenna Dewan was the first of the pregnant ladies to give birth! I thought for sure it would be Busy Phillips, followed by Kim Kardashian, followed by Jenna and then Duchess Kate. But Jenna did give birth, and apparently it happened last Thursday! Channing Tatum and his wife have not released any details of the birth or even if it’s a girl or a boy. All we know is that Jenna gave birth in London.

Add Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum to the list of hot Hollywood parents! The couple welcomed their first child together in London on Thursday, May 30, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm. The bundle of joy’s gender is not yet known.

Tatum, 33, and Dewan-Tatum, 32, announced they were expecting their first child in December. The couple met on the set of Step Up in 2006, and tied the knot in July 2009.

Throughout the pregnancy, the parents-to-be maintained their busy work schedules. “We’re going to actually have the baby in London while I’m shooting, and then there will be no downtime whatsoever after that,” Tatum told Ryan Seacrest in an interview about filming Jupiter Ascending in the UK.

Production of Tatum’s new film is set to move to Chicago in July, and his wife will begin work on her fall Lifetime series, Witches of East End, in Vancouver around the same time.

“The baby will get top billing as far as priorities go,” a source tells Us. “Channing is going to be the most adorable hands-on daddy ever and do whatever is necessary to make sure Jenna can balance it all.”

Eh, we’ll know the details soon enough. I’m kind of hoping it’s a boy just because I see their genes blending better with a boy, and because I think they’d be adorable with a son. But they’d be adorable with a daughter too, so whatever is fine. Congrats to Jenna and Channing! So, because the baby was born in London, does that mean the baby can’t be president one day? Wouldn’t it be awesome if they had a boy and Duchess Kate had a girl and one day those kids got married and the House of Windsor became the House of Tatum? HA.

………OK, now Us Weekly is claiming that they definitely had a girl! Congrats to Baby Girl Tatum!

    ohhh yayyy! Huge congrats my fave celeb couple ever!!!! I would have put money it was a boy, but I suck at ‘guess the gender’. I hope Jenna is doing well. And they don’t name her anything ridiculous…..

    Woo! The first tater-tot!
    Congrats to them both, it seems as though Jenna’s been pregnant for a *long* time.
    The fact that they’re dog people makes me love ‘em even more.

  5. Anna says:

    And now we have a new couple to compete with Thor/India and Becks/H7 in the adorable father-daughter photo ops contest!

  6. Samigirl says:

    I swear, last night while watching Magic Mike, I was thinking, I bet they have a daughter. I just think it’s so sweet watching men with their daughters. Congrats to the two of them!

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      They say men who are womanizers are destined to have daughters. Channing was a stripper, so all daughters for him! Lol

  7. Hipocricy says:

    This is how a pregnant woman should dress…cute and comfortable.

    Congrats to them. Jenna is gorgeous !

    • JenD says:

      She has looked really cute the whole pregnancy, and very comfortable. But I don’t think she thinks she’s some fashion icon (like Kim K) so she had nothing to prove wearing crazy, uncomfortable clothes.

      • Lucy says:

        Agreed. She looked comfortable and not at all swollen (which she obviously was, as any pregnant woman. Kim could learn a thing or two from her, but of course, being who she is, it’s always “fashion” before comfort…

  8. Miss M says:

    Congrats to them!

  9. Katherine says:

    You spelled “daughter” wrong in the title!

  10. Chickie Baby says:

    Aww, that’s neat! Just what I needed to read first thing on a Monday morning–uber cute couple had a little girl. Makes me wonder what Channing was like in the delivery room, though. Oh, to be a fly on the wall….

  11. lucy2 says:

    Congrats to them. I for some reason thought they had already said it was a girl a while back, but I guess not.

  12. GrnMtGirl says:

    Awww…I can’t wait to see photos of Channing and his baby Girl!! Daddy’s with their little girls always get to me!!

    Congrats to the Tatum family

    Are they both US citizens? I just don’t know. But if they’re both US citizens, the baby is a US citizen and could one day be president.

    • Jess says:

      The baby was not born on American soil. Can’t be president.

      • Fatkid says:

        Doesn’t matter that it wasn’t on U.S. soil. All that matters is that both parents are U.S. citizens, that means that regardless of the place of birth the child is a U.S. citizen at birth. In order to run for president you have to be a citizen at birth, their kid is eligible.

        I am constantly shocked by how many U.S. citizens don’t understand the meaning of “natural born citizen”

    • Jen says:

      Even if only one parent is an American citizen, the baby is also an American.

      • Rachel says:

        Wrong. If only one parent is a US citizen and the child is born outside of the US, the child is not a “natural born citizen” which is the requirement to be president.

  14. Jen says:

    If a baby is born to American citizens, the baby is an American citizen, regardless of which country it’s born in, and therefore, could one day be president (as long as they’d lived in the United States for at least 14 years). The baby would just get a “Certificate of Birth Abroad” from the US State Department in addition to their birth certificate from the local authority. Depending on the laws of country the baby is born in, she may or may not have birthright citizenship in that country.

    Some magazine needs to do a photoshoot of “Hollywood Hot Dads”, I’d buy it for sure. Tatum could give Hemsworth a run for his money, he’s like a cleaner and less scuzzy version of Josh Hartnett.

  17. Kosmos says:

    They’re a cute couple. I like them together. I sure hope they make it and stay married for the long run. Bringing a baby in can sometimes change things for a young couple. It’s going to test their relationship even more.

  18. You have some genuinely important info composed right here. Excellent job and keep posting terrific things.

  19. My husband and I had been inspired with the elevated beds we noticed this Spring and prepare to do some thing identical on our property. We’re searching forward to your Drop sale! It truly is this kind of the lovely farm and a enjoyment, eclectic sale.
