Channing Tatum named People's Sexiest Man Alive of 2012

By Gina DiFalco,

Just as many had predicted, the man who has dethroned Bradley Cooper to become 2012’s Sexiest Man Alive is Channing Tatum.

People magazine has announced that their choice for the coveted honor is the Magic Mike star, who is married to Jenna Dewan-Tatum.

"My first thought was, 'Y'all are messing with me,'" Tatum told People. "I told Jenna after we'd been in the bathtub washing our dogs because they'd gotten skunked."

"She was like, 'What?'" adding, "Yeah, she calls me [the Sexiest Man Alive] now," he adds. And who can blame her?

Tatum, 32, also talks about wanting to start a family with his wife, who he met on the set of their movie Step Up.

"I'm ready; I think she's ready," he said. "The first number that pops into my head is three, but I just want one to be healthy and then we'll see where we go after that."

He added, "It’s really easy for us guys to say, 'I want like 15 kids. Jenna will be like, 'Well you better get another wife!'"

But she had nothing but nice things to say about her husband, of course, explaining "People know him to be fun and sexy, but they don't know how emotionally deep and spiritually open he is," adding, "He is such an open-hearted person; what you see is what you get."

ABC News reports that the Sexiest Man Alive isn’t the only title given out by the magazine every year, as there’s also Sexy at Every Age, Hot Dogs (men who are dog lovers), Shades of Grey (men who are greying) and more.
