Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum welcomed their first child, a daughter, on Friday, May 31.
Furthermore, the new parents released the name of their child in a post to Tatum's website.
"Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Channing Tatum are thrilled to announce the birth of their daughter, Everly Tatum, who was born on May 31st in London," the message read.
Although the couple lives in Los Angeles, Tatum is filming "Jupiter Ascending" in the British capital where they welcomed their bundle of joy.
Just before baby Everly's arrival, Tatum discussed the confusing process of getting the baby a dual citizenship of the U.S. and England.
"I've heard like 17 different things," he told Yahoo! News. "We just asked the hospital and they didn't even really know, so I don't know how we're ever going to know. If we ever really wanted to make her a citizen, we'd go figure it out."
As for the future for their family, Tatum has said he wants several children.
"The first number that pops into my head is three, but I just want one to be healthy and then we'll see where we go after that," the actor told People magazine.
Meanwhile, both Dewan-Tatum and her husband have gushed about their marriage in the past. Married since 2009, the actress described Tatum as "emotionally deep and spiritually open," according to People magazine.
"He is such a open-hearted person," said the 31-year-old "American Horror Story" star. "What you see is what you get."
The couple met on the set of their hit film "Step Up," and according to a source close to Dewan-Tatum, the new mom could not be happier.
"Jenna knows just how lucky she is to have Channing at her side," said an insider at Us Weekly. "Her heart is filled with so much love. She and Channing are truly soul mates."
