Channing Tatum has welcomed a baby girl with his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum.

The "White House Down" actor and his wife had their first Tatum tot in London on May 30, according to Us Weekly.People reported that the "Magic Tyke" is a girl but the name and other birth vitals are still unknown.

The Tatums met on the set of the 2006 dance flick "Step Up," began dating, and were married in March 2009.

The actors announced their baby news in December and are currently living in London as People's Sexiest Man Alive shoots the Wachowskis sci-fi flick "Jupiter Ascending" with Mila Kunis, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne and James D'Arcy.

Last April, Dewan-Tatum opened up to Glamour magazine about the innate and primordial aspects of carrying a baby.

"I thought my body was going to change so quickly with pregnancy that I'd freak out. But it was really gradual. There's a reason women are pregnant for nine months; by the end, you're ready to have this baby."

And her husband has been supportive throughout the way.

"Channing has been great. He takes the route of no confrontation, just support, saying things like, 'Do whatever you want! What do you want to eat? I'm going to leave it up to you.' "

As for their parenting style, being parents to two canines is all the practice they had up until now.

"Who knows what kind of parents we'll be?" she added. "We have two dogs, so we've had some practice! And as soon as this baby comes into the world, Channing and I will figure it out real fast."

Here's to figuring it out. Congrats!
