Channing Tatum: World's sexiest

Channing Tatum again beat Ryan Gosling for the title of People's Sexiest Man Alive. When did he find out? While washing the skunk funk off of his dogs.

Channing Tatum is People's Sexiest Man AlivePeople tried to play coy about it last week, but Channing Tatum was just named the magazine's Sexiest Man Alive for 2012.

"My first thought was, 'Y'all are messing with me,'" he said. "I told [wife] Jenna [Dewan] after we'd been in the bathtub washing our dogs because they'd gotten skunked."

"She was like, 'What?'" he recalled of his wife of three years.

She might be used to his sexiness now — after all, she gets to see it on a daily basis. We, on the other hand, have to settle for glimpses of Tatum's stacked body in movies like this summer's hit stripper movie Magic Mike.

The film — loosely based on his life as a Florida stripper in the late '90s and early '00s — grossed nearly $114 million in United States alone on a $7 million budget.

There's talk of a sequel, but for now Tatum said he's focused on another big project: Becoming a father.

"I'm ready; I think she's ready," the 32-year-old 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."

As for what his American Horror Story: Asylum star wife thinks of having children?

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

We're pretty sure that wouldn't be too hard of a position to fill, Jenna.
