“Sexiest Man Alive” Channing Tatum is about to become a dad!

The actor, 32, and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum, 32, are expecting their first child.

”[They] are pleased to announce that they are expecting the birth of their first child next year,” reps for the couple confirm to Access Hollywood.

Earlier in the day, Jenna visited Access Hollywood Live to chat about her upcoming Lifetime movie, “She Made Them Do It,” but played coy on her pregnancy news.

“We want a family. We definitely want a family, whenever it’s meant to be. Whenever divine intervention comes in and creates that to happen,” she said.

Access also spoke to her on Sunday about rumors that she was expecting while at “VH1’s Divas.”

“We both want kids. So, we’ll see. When God wants it, we’ll be there,” she said.

Channing and Jenna wed in 2009.
