Channing Tatum, Ellen DeGeneres

There was once a time when Channing Tatum was flaunting his rock-hard abs any chance he could get.

But the new father revealed to Ellen DeGeneres that he's a bit hesitant about showing off his body these days.

"Me and my wife like to say I am very fappy," he said with a smile. "I'm very fat and happy right now."

So is Tatum bulking up for a new role? Not so much, he explained.

"Just for once, I've been working for two straight years, and now it's some really needed down time," he shared on the comedian's daytime talk show.

Tatum took some time off to focus on family after his wife, Jenna Dewan, gave birth to their first child, Everly, last year.

"She's eight months old now and saying 'da, da, da, da,' I don't think she knows what it means just yet, but it doesn't matter," he gushed.

"She's sleeping now too…You know how you get that first thing of not feeling cool enough for your kid, because like you think you're the coolest thing in the world so far and she's just like a little baby, she just a little infant? But she actually has better taste in music than I think I do. Because she will only fall asleep to really good music."

Tatum revealed that his baby daughter prefers to listen to Drake's "Hold On We're Going Home" and Prince's "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World" before bed.

"She might be conceited, I'm not sure," he joked.

Tatum also spoke about passing along the Sexiest Man Alive title to Adam Levine.

"I think the only thing that you pass on is the ability for your friends just to make complete fun of you for the rest of your life," he said.

"Even my wife had a go at it. You know she called me SMA. She's like, 'SMA, can you get me a coffee or something?'" Cute!
