Channing Tatum just wrote the most beautiful letter to his daughter
'My highest hope for her is just that she has the fearlessness to always be her authentic self, no matter what she thinks men want her to be'
Channing Tatum is one half of Hollywood’s sweetest couple, embracing parenthood along with his wife, Jenna Dewan.
From Ryan Reynolds to Chris Helmsworth, we’ve heard our fair share of heart-melting celebrity fatherhood quotes, but Channing’s recent words to three-year old daughter Everly are by far the most powerful.
In the June issue ofCosmopolitan US, the actor wrote an empowering open letter to his daughter, detailing what he wants her to know about love and life.
‘The more I thought about this, the more I thought about my daughter reading this article someday. I pictured her in her late teens or early 20s, hoping to explore and discover her sexuality and dreaming about finding true love,’ Tatum wrote.
‘I tried to imagine the things I’d want her to read that would help her understand men and sex and partnership better, and at that moment, I realized a strange thing. I don’t want her looking to the outside world for answers. My highest hope for her is just that she has the fearlessness to always be her authentic self, no matter what she thinks men want her to be.’
Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum met on the set ofStep Up, with the actress recently opening up about how they got together. Channing touched on it in his letter too, explaining ‘I thought about when I first met Jenna. I knew our connection was really powerful, but I wasn’t sure what our relationship was going to be. Then one day, Jenna just blurted out that she knew exactly what she wanted in life and she didn’t have to look for it anymore because it was me. She had no idea what I’d say or how I’d react, but that was her truth. I remember feeling this incredible rush — it was the sexiest thing she’d ever done for me. I felt strength, because in that moment, she had accepted every part of me, the good and the bad.
