Channing Tatum Admits: 'I'm Very Fat And Happy Right Now'

Sorry Ladies, Channing Tatum Says He's 'Very Fat Right Now'

When Channing Tatum breaks out his infamous physique and dance moves, we can all feel the proverbial swoon. But the actor admits he's no longer the buff, toned man he once was.

In an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Thursday (Feb. 6), Tatum laughed when DeGeneres told him, "Since 'Magic Mike,' now whenever you dance we think you're going to take your clothes off."

"No, no. You definitely don't want that right now," Tatum giggled in response. "Right now, what me and my wife [Jenna Dewan-Tatum] like to call it, I am very 'fappy,' " he said with a grin. "I'm very fat and happy right now … I've been working for two straight years, and now it's some really needed downtime with the family."

Tatum, 33, who recently wrapped production on "22 Jump Street" and "Jupiter Ascending," is enjoying some time at home with his wife and their 8-month-old daughter, Everly.

"She's saying, 'Da, da, da, da, da.' I don't think she knows exactly what it means just yet, but it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter at all," he said, smiling.

As for how he feels about giving up his "Sexiest Man Alive" title to Adam Levine, a newly "plump" Tatum explains, "I think the only thing that you really pass on is the ability for your friends to just make complete fun of you for the rest of your life."
