The Letter Tatum Wrote Cosmo is Making Us Swoon
Channing Tatum wrote his daughter a letter and we’re all swooning. Cosmopolitan will be publishing the heartwarming letter Tatum wrote in its June 2017 issue under the category, “A Message from One of Our Fave Men.”
The invitation from Cosmo is in line with the launching of Magic Mike Live in Las Vegas. The actor revealed that he thought of his daughter who might be reading this letter someday, “dreaming about finding true love.” Tatum ends up creating a testament of love for his wife, Jenna Dewan Tatum.
I took this just days after jenna and I (mostly jenna) brought our little girl into the world. I've taken many like it over the past 3 years but this is one of my favorites. She was so tired. Haha. But she has such deep strength and other worldly grace. Watching her in those first days transform into a mother was life changing. 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. Thank you for that baby. Saw this quote today –" The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother. Theodore Hesburgh" 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. Love you cake!
Check out excerpts from the letter Tatum wrote:
“I thought about when I first met Jenna. I knew our connection was really powerful, but I wasn’t sure what our relationship was going to be. Then one day, Jenna just blurted out that she knew exactly what she wanted in life and she didn’t have to look for it anymore because it was me. She had no idea what I’d say or how I’d react, but that was her truth. I remember feeling this incredible rush — it was the sexiest thing she’d ever done for me. I felt strength, because in that moment, she had accepted every part of me, the good and the bad. And I knew she wasn’t auditioning me or hoping I’d meet some set of expectations. That radical authenticity of hers was what made me fall head over heels in love. Before I experienced it, I wouldn’t have known how to ask for it. Now I know it’s what I was always craving. And that’s what I want for my daughter — to be expectation-less with her love and not allow preconceived standards to affect her, to ask herself what she wants and feel empowered enough to act on it.”
The letter Tatum wrote further talks about empowering women, including encouraging men to treat women like goddesses as shown in Magic Mike. Jenna is indeed one lucky lady, and so is their daughter!
