Channing Tatum

He's a new dad, so we can't blame Channing Tatum for still having an affinity toward baby bumps.

The 33-year-old actor seemed to prove just that when he happily placed his hands on the belly of a pregnant lady following an appearance on Thursday's Jimmy Kimmel Live in Hollywood.

Not surprising, the mother-to-be snapped a photo of the momentous occasion and will surely show it to her little one someday.

Of course, Tatum himself is already basking in the glow of parenthood.

He and wife Jenna Dewan welcomed daughter Everly late last month.

"I was there for the whole thing," the White House Down star told the Hollywood Reporter. "That was the most amazing thing I have ever experienced in my life."

Tatum added, "I am sleeping a little, probably more than most. A lot of people who have a baby probably don't have as much rest as I do. We have [a nanny] helping us manage all the risks of having a newborn."

And he's clearly a proud papa.

"I've never been so excited when something poos," Tatum said on Tuesday's Good Morning America. "I just get so amped up because I'm in the game now. The mom does so much of the early work those first few weeks and I'm just like, 'Put me in the game. Put me in the game.' I've gotten so good at like changing diapers, swaddling and then get it back before she cries."

As for how new mom Dewan-Tatum is doing, he gushed to E! News exclusively earlier this week, "She's good, she's really good. Tired, you know...just taking care of the baby on those first months. First months are hard."

Tatum also noted that his busy work schedule can be tough sometimes.

"I'm away from her for 12-13 hours and I feel like I come home and I feel like she's changed—like her face looks different," he said. "You feel like every minute that you miss is horrible."
