Channing Tatum took time Sunday to let the world know how much he honors wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s role as mother to their two-year-old daughter, Everly.
He posted a photo to Instagram of Jenna holding Everly, just days after giving birth.
“Watching her in those first days transform into a mother was life changing,” he wrote. “She was every bit the beautiful, sexy, funny, flawed creature I fell in love with. But the prism turned and showed a whole new light that I had no idea existed, the light of a mothers love.”
Tatum goes on to quote Theodore Hesburgh, “The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.” He said, “...there are a lot of important things in being a father. Who knows what the most important thing is? All I know is that in my case this is pretty high on my list.”
Jenna also marked Mother’s Day with an Instagram post of her and a sleeping baby Everly. “Becoming a mother is the most amazing journey of my life,” she wrote. “The love that I have for this little soul is beyond explanation and humbles me every day.”
