Channing Tatum crying fits baby birth

Channing Tatum Had ‘Crying Fits’ Watching Wife Jenna Give Birth

Channing Tatum has no qualms admitting that he cried during the birth of her daughter Everly last month.

While promoting his new film White House Down the hunky actor and new dad had said that being a father is a “terrifying” experience.

In an appearance on the late night talk show Chelsea Lately, which was part of the press junket for the film, he talked about watching his 32-year-old wife give birth.

“There’s a real reason why God did not give men the ability to have babies, because we would not be able to do it. I don’t know how women do it. It’s a real thing. It’s like National Geographic animal-style for real. I don’t get it.”

Channing, who seems overwhelmed, but ecstatic has been talking about fatherhood a lot lately. The birth of the couple’s first born coincided with the promotion of White House Down.

Many of the interviews of Channing Tatum are not only asking questions about the film, but they are taking the opportunity to ask one of the most popular leading men about his new status in life.

The actor said that watching Jenna during her labor pains made him feel helpless which made him shed more than one round of tears.

“I probably went to the bathroom four times and had a crying fit,” he said. “Like, I’m just like, I don’t know what to do!”

Channing said that not being able to do anything about his wife’s pain was “torture”.

“It’s like someone’s hurting, someone that you love and you can’t do anything about it,” he said. “You physically cannot help. And I’m still not helping and the baby’s out. It doesn’t matter. You are useless.”

Channing and Jenna welcomed their daughter, Everly, on May 31 in London, where he was working on White House Down.
