He may be fappy, but he's still hot! Channing Tatum made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday, Feb. 6, and admitted to host Ellen DeGeneres that he's put on a little weight since he appeared in the 2012 male stripper movie Magic Mike.

"What you've done since Magic Mike is now, whenever you dance, we think you're going to take your clothes off," DeGeneres joked.

"You definitely don't want that right now," the 33-year-old actor said. "Right now -- what me and my wife [Jenna Dewan-Tatum] like to call it -- I am very fappy . . . I'm very fat and happy right now."

The White House Down actor said he's currently enjoying a little time off from work. "Just for the once, I've been working for two straight year and now it's some really needed down time," he explained.

The break from work also comes with the added bonus of spending more time with his 8-month-old daughter, Everly. But the first-time dad joked that he worries he's not "cool enough" for his daughter.

"She actually has better taste in music than I think I do," he said. "Because she will only fall asleep to really good music." Tatum said Everly prefers to listen to Drake, and "loves falling asleep" to Prince's 1994 hit "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World."

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