Tatum nervous about fatherhood

Comment on this story

London - Channing Tatum is worried about becoming a dad.

Although the Side Effects actor can't wait to welcome his first child with wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum this summer, Channing admitted he is scared he will mess up.

He told People magazine: “That will be the biggest role of my life. I hope I don’t screw that one up,

“I'm really, really excited about it and I hope to slow to down a little bit when the little person comes into the world.”

Channing, 32, has had a successful few years, winning praise for his roles in Magic Mike and 21 Jump Street and being voted People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive last year, but the modest star attributes it all to luck and hard work.

He said: “Look, I’ve been lucky, I’ve said it before, we work so hard on every single movie and you never know which ones are going to work and which ones aren’t... I think it’s just, you’ve got to keep doing stories you love and characters that you love.” - Bang Showbiz
