Channing Tatum and wife Jenna Dewan arrive at the 85th Academy Awards in Hollywood, California.

London - Channing Tatum has revealed his wife will give birth in London.

The Magic Mike star, who is presenting an award at the Oscars on Sunday night, will be working on a movie in the UK when his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum is due to give birth to their first child this summer and the couple have decided to have their baby there so he doesn't miss it.

The 32-year-old actor told Ryan Seacrest on E!'s Live From The Red Carpet: “We're having the baby in London. I'm shooting there at the time. No downtime whatsoever.”

The Side Effects star recently revealed he thinks his wife's pregnancy is the “sexiest thing”.

He said: “I think it's one of the sexiest things ever!”

While the couple can't wait to become parents, they don't want to find out the baby's gender until it is born.

Channing previously explained: “We don't know (if it's a boy or a girl). We're going to be surprised. It's one of the only real surprises you're ever going to get that's legit!”

He also admitted he is terrified but excited about the impending birth.

He said: “I mean, I don't think there's one thing that doesn't terrify you, but in the most unbelievably beautiful way. Someone said it's really like watching your heart jump out of your body and run around, and I think that can possibly be the coolest thing that I've heard of.” - Bang Showbiz
