During a recent interview to promote his new film, Side Effects, Tatum was asked what part of fatherhood scares him the most:
“I think everything and above. I mean, I don’t think there’s one thing that doesn’t terrify you, but in the most unbelievably beautiful way.”
“Someone said it’s really like watching your heart jump out of your body and run away, and I think that can possibly be the coolest thing that I’ve heard of.”
Tatum was also asked about how his pregnant wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, is doing:
“She’s a complete animal right now! You can ask her, but in the most beautiful like humanistic animal-y way. She works out all the time, eats right, impeccably right. She’s just a machine.”
So, according to Tatum, everything is beautiful. Plus, he called his wife an “animal” and a “machine” but he did it in a way where he won’t get chewed out by his wife later.
