Channing Tatum Cops to ‘Crying Fits’ During Daughter’s Birth
The star admits he had several breakdowns when he and wife Jenna Dewan-Tautm welcomed their first child, a daughter they named Everly, into the world on May 31.
"I probably went to the bathroom, like, four times and had a crying fit," Tautm confessed to Chelsea Handler on her late night show (clip below).
"There is a real reason … that God did not give [men] the ability to have babies. I don't know how you guys do it. It's like National Geographic, like, animal-stlye, for real.
I don't get it," he said.
Dewan-Tatum gave birth to Everly at a hospital in London, where Tatum was on location filming the sci-fi flick "Jupiter Ascending." His tears weren't just from joy, however, but also from feelings of stress and helplessness.
"It's like someone's hurting, someone that you love, and you can't do anything about it.
You physically cannot help," he said.
He did get a consolation prize a few weeks after his delivery room breakdown – his first Father's Day.
"My dad and [Jenna's] father happened to be there, and it was two weeks after the baby came. I was like, 'I get a whole other holiday, this is great,'" he told Handler. "I didn't even think of it like that and then I started getting gifts.
We hope they came with tissues.
