Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Channing Tatum share baby name, talk parenting

Channing Tatum and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum have named their baby girl Everly.

The "White House Down" actor, who has also starred in "Magic Mike" and "21 Jump Street," welcomed his baby girl on May 31 in London, where he is filming the Wachowskis' sci-fi flick "Jupiter Ascending." Mila Kunis, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne and James D'Arcy also star in the film.

The parents announced Everly's birth on their separate websites with the title "And baby makes three..."

"Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Channing Tatum are thrilled to announce the birth of their daughter, Everly Tatum, who was born on May 31st in London," the post said. "Sending love and light to Chan, Jenna, and Ms. Everly!"

Previous reports said the child was born May 30.

Channing, 33, and Jenna, 32, met on the set of the 2006 dance flick "Step Up," began dating, and were married in March 2009. The actors, who costarred in the 2011 reunion flick "10 Years," announced in December that they were expecting.

The new parents have a busy work schedule to keep up with. Filming for "Jupiter Ascending" will relocate to Chicago in July and Dewan-Tatum is set to go to Vancouver in the fall to work on her Lifetime series "Witches of East End," Us Weekly reports.

"I don't think you can prepare," Tatum recently told Vanity Fair of his papa-to-be training. "It's a bit of a freestyle."

Tatum, a onetime exotic dancer whose life served as source material for the stripper flick "Magic Mike," said he's definitely using his parents as an example "for better and worse."

"They weren't perfect. I don't know anyone who did have perfect parents. It's provided me with lessons I'll try to improve upon when I'm up to bat. I'm just going to be a good friend to my kid," he said. "One thing I definitely want to change is that whole 'I don't want you to make the same mistakes' mentality. My dad didn't have much money growing up; he didn't have much of an education. He forced that on me, and I didn't want it."

But living in the spotlight is one way he's changed those familial lessons. Tatum also said he grew up with learning disabilities that he had to be medicated for -- something he vowed never to do to his own child -- and seems to be glad that he really became famous at a later age.

"I don't remember who said it, but I do believe that whatever age you become famous, you end up staying that age. Because from that point you're not asked to be a normal citizen," Tatum told the magazine. "I broke through at 24 or 25. I had lived a pretty diverse life. When I was finally making money, I knew exactly what I needed ... $5.67. I'd have one meal a day. I would go to Checkers and get the No. 1 with everything."

Tatum's upcoming U.S. capital-based action thriller "White House Down," which costars Jamie Foxx, opens in theaters June 28.
