Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum are expecting their first child. A couple of weeks ago, the “Magic Mike” star announced that he was taking a break from acting. Now, he and his wife Jenna are expecting a baby.

Tatum, 32, and Dewan, 32, first met in 2006 on the set of the movie “Step Up,” and married in 2008.

Now a rep for both Tatum and Dewan-Tatum has confirmed the two “are pleased to announce that they are expecting the birth of their first child next year,” according to People.

Tatum who has already finished some movies that will open during 2013 had originally said he was taking a break from acting, though he was seemingly hitting his stride to proving he was a top-notch movie star. He stated the break was due to wanting to take on some directing projects behind the camera. There was no word if the news of the pregnancy may have factored into the decision as well.

After news broke of the pregnancy, the Tatum family told E! News that they’re “over the moon” and “couldn’t feel more blessed” about this next step in their lives.

Later, Jenna wrote on Twitter, Thank you everyone for all the LOVE!! XO,” Channing added to it, “Appreciate everyone’s good wishes and love! Thanks guys! :)”

Tatum starred in four movies in 2012, including “Magic Mike,” and “21 Jump Street.” He has four movies completed or about to be completed for release in 2013 including the “G.I. Joe” sequel.
