Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan 'Don't Like Clothes'

On Tuesday, Independent posted an interview with the actor who mentioned that he's trying to be the kind of dad who lets his children learn by doing rather than being the one who gets in the way.

"I don't want to be a controlling father," he said. "I know that's a dangerous weapon, in a way, to give children too much freedom. You have to let them live, you have to let them grow."

Tatum then opened up on his life growing up where he was raised mostly by his mother and sister.

"My sister was a huge part of my life," he said. "How she would see men was really clear to me. I got to see it through her eyes and understand what was expected from me, even from my sister."

Tatum has a one-year-old daughter named Everly whom he shares with his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum. The two met in the 2006 film Step Up where their love began not too long after they started dating.

"We wore 'promise' rings within the first year," Tatum said. "We were already married in our heads and our hearts."

The couple gave it a few years before they got married and Tatum made it clear that being a husband makes him happy.

"I like saying 'my wife,'" he said. "It feels good to me. I feel grown up."
