Channing Tatum Pens Emotional Letter to His Daughter Encouraging Her to Always Be ‘Authentic’

If you didn’t love Channing Tatum already, this should help push you over the edge.

Tatum penned a letter to his three-year-old daughter, Everly, and shared all the things he wants his little girl to know as she grows up.

Worried that she may learn some of life’s most important lessons from somewhere else, Channing shared his “highest hope” for Everly was for her to be fearless.

“I tried to imagine the things I’d want her to read that would help her understand men and sex and partnership better, and at that moment, I realized a strange thing,” he wrote. “I don’t want her looking to the outside world for answers.”

Instead, the actor wants to raise her to trust herself.

“My highest hope for her is just that she has the fearlessness to always be her authentic self, no matter what she thinks men want her to be,” he explained.

Channing Tatum And Joe Manganiello Take Their Sexiness And ‘Magic Mike XXL’ To The Land Down Under

Sure Channing Tatum’s hair might look ridiculous, but put him next to Joe Manganiello and they only bring out the best in each other. Joe and Channing were all smiles and hotness on the red carpet today at the Australian premiere of Magic Mike XXL.

In that sense, he’d hopes she takes after her mom, Jenna Dewan Tatum.

“I thought about when I first met Jenna,” he recalled. “I knew our connection was really powerful, but I wasn’t sure what our relationship was going to be. Then one day, Jenna just blurted out that she knew exactly what she wanted in life and she didn’t have to look for it anymore because it was me. She had no idea what I’d say or how I’d react, but that was her truth.”

The Magic Mike star said it was that — his wife’s “radical authenticity” — that made him really fall for her.

“And that’s what I want for my daughter — to be expectation-less with her love and not allow preconceived standards to affect her, to ask herself what she wants and feel empowered enough to act on it,” he added.

While Tatum raises his daughter to be that woman, he already credits her with making him a better man.

“Babies are just like little mirrors of you,” he told Cosmo in a Facebook Live chat last summer. “They don’t even understand what you’re saying for a very large part of their early life. So it’s your behavior (that matters). That’s probably one of the biggest lessons for me — my behavior is everything to her.”
