Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan were meant to be. Since their first meeting on the set of their movie Step Up, they've been inseparable, but that doesn't mean it's easy watching his wife's sex scenes.

During an interview with Redbook magazine, the 21 Jump Street actor was asked whether he finds it weird watching his wife's steamy sex scenes in Witches Of East End, to which he replied, "Yeah, of course. I mean, she's a very sexy individual, which is obviously why I'm with her."

But don't be fooled into thinking that that's the only reason why Tatum is with his wife. He went on to explain that there are indeed many reasons.

"There are many reasons! But that is definitely very high on the list. She watches when I do love scenes too, and we've had to kind of find our way with it. She'll cover my eyes, and I'll cover hers. It's all in good fun," he explained.

While it can't be easy watching your spouse get hot and heavy on-screen, it's all part of the job — speaking of which, these two met while on a job. The lovebirds filmed their movie Step Up together in 2006, and that was the moment that they shared their first kiss.

"We were basically together on the movie," he recalled. "It's interesting now, because we can watch it and see; we can go, 'Oh, wow, that was actually our first real kiss.' As soon as the movie wrapped, we went back to LA and were together, and together ever since — never broken up. That’s nine years."

That kiss blossomed into something truly beautiful and the pair now shares a baby daughter together, Everly. So, do they decide who will change their daughter's diapers via a dance battle?

"Dance battles do sort of happen, to be honest. When we wake up in the morning we put on music, and while Everly's eating we dance and it just starts to get stupid. Changing the baby is an intermission — but our daughter hates getting her diaper changed, so it's almost like a break-dancing battle to get it on her. As soon as you lay her down, she's bridging out of it and doing some jujitsu windmill. It's pretty intense," Tatum told the publication. Sounds pretty adorable to us.
