Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan, WhoSay


Christmas is always the happiest time of year, but nothing can be better than watching your first child finally learn what the season is all about!

Such is the case for Channing Tatum who couldn't help but gush about his adorable 2-year-old daughter, Everly, while visiting Live! With Kelly and Michael on Tuesday morning.

When asked if his toddler understands the concept of Christmas, he laughed, "She gets the presents part! She keeps looking at the tree because she knows that stuff is supposed to be under there. But she doesn't understand that she's not allowed to open them yet. So when we put something under there, she's just like, ‘Present!'"

So what's on Everly's Christmas wish list this year? Tatum revealed that she has a very peculiar interest at this stage in her life.

"You know, probably Frozen stuff," he said before adding, "She loves turtles. Purple turtles! I don't know why!"

As for her Frozen obsession, Tatum admitted that he does dress up with his daughter from time to time. "I'm generally Elsa," he revealed.  "Because she likes to be Anna. I'm more of an Elsa girl."

The Magic Mike star also divulged one of his lifelong holiday traditions: reading the book A Cajun Night Before Christmas, which he hopes to pass along to his daughter as the years go on.
