Jenna Dewan-Tatum and
Carol Channing Tatum O’Neal are temporarily living in London while he shoots a movie and last week she birthed their first child. This morning, a statement went up on the squinting thumb man’s website (via UsWeekly) announcing the birf of his daughter and her name:
“Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Channing Tatum are thrilled to announce the birth of their daughter, Everly Tatum, who was born on May 31 in London. Sending love and light to Chan, Jenna and Ms. Everly!”
Wait. Channing Tatum’s friends and family call him CHAN?! Channing Tatum is the last person I want to call CHAN!
Everly Tatum isn’t the worst name. Everly sounds like a fancy hillbilly name. Everly Tatum sounds like the name of the snobbiest Southern housewife in a sequel to The Help or something.
If you don’t like the name “Everly,” you better find a way to get used to it. Because in the future, everybody is going to have the word “Ever” somewhere in their first name. Everybody is naming their kid Eversomething. Milla Jovovich named her daughter Ever Gabo (which is a Russian phrase that translates into “I hate my child” ), Cam Gigadent named his daughter Everleigh Rae, Anthony Kiedis named his son Everly Bear, Alanis Morrissette named her son Ever Imre and now Channing and Jenna have named their daughter Everly Tatum. If for some strange reason my right hand gets pregnant and has a baby, I’m totally going to name it Everclear or Everluvin Fuq.
Here’s some riveting pictures of Channing and Jenna taking their dogs for a walk right before she gave birth to Everly.
