Channing Tatum is going to be a dad.

The actor's wife of three years, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, is pregnant, their rep told Us Weekly. "Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Channing Tatum are pleased to announce that they are expecting the birth of their first child next year."

I hope it's next year. I'd be really suspicious if it was the year after.

"It was a total surprise," an insider told Us Weekly, of the pregnancy, adding that Tatum, 32, is taking a full year off to be with his expectant spouse and their baby-to-be, due sometime in 2013. The couple met on the set of "Step Up" in 2006 and married in 2009 in Malibu.

Great. Another homely, no-talent kid running around Southern California.

Earlier this year, Dewan, 32, talked to Us Weekly about their plans for a family.

"I would hope so" the dancer-turned-actress said. "I just don't know when. When it's meant to be, it will happen."
