Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum Expecting First Child Together

"Magic Mike" European Premiere - Arrivals

Well, it’s certainly been a red-letter year for Channing Tatum.  All of his 2012 theatrical releases  - The Vow, 21 Jump Street, and Magic Mike – were certifiable hits, which in turn makes him one of the most in-demand actors.  Further cementing his ‘It Boy’ status, he was also named People’s Sexiest Man Alive.  Indeed, this has been by far his most successful year as an actor to date.

Now, on top of that, he’s got a bit of good news at home, as well.

Channing and his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum have announced they are expecting the birth of their first child together! The couple revealed the exciting news to PEOPLE on Monday:

The actor and his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum ”are pleased to announce that they are expecting the birth of their first child next year,” reps for the couple confirm to PEOPLE exclusively.

Crowned PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive in November, the Magic Mike star admitted he and the American Horror Story: Asylum actress, both 32, had babies on the brain, adding a family wasn’t too far off in their future. “I’m ready; I think she’s ready,” Tatum told PEOPLE recently.

“The first number that pops into my head is three, but I just want one to be healthy and then we’ll see where we go after that.”

Congrats to the both of them!
