The actor, 34, admitted to the mag that he’s uncomfortable watching his wife’s love scenes. “I mean, she’s a very sexy individual, which is obviously why I’m with her…there are many reasons!” Tatum reflected of the Witches of East End star. “But that is definitely very high on the list. She watches when I do love scenes too, and we’ve had to kind of find our way with it. She’ll cover my eyes and I’ll cover hers. It’s all in good fun.”

He added that they implement the good fun to everyday activities, like changing their 16-month-old daughter’s diapers.

“Dance battles do sort of happen, to be honest,” Tatum joked. “When we wake up in the morning, we put on music, and while Everly’s eating we dance and it just starts to get stupid. Changing the baby is an intermission — but our daughter hates getting her diaper changed, so it’s almost like a break-dancing battle to get it on her. As soon as you lay her down, she’s bridging out of it and doing some jiu-jitsu windmill. It’s pretty intense.”

The Magic Mike star and Dewan Tatum first connected on the set of 2006 dance movie Step Up. The actor even reminisced about sharing his first kiss with his future wife as they filmed scenes for the flick.

“We were basically together on the movie,” he recalled. “It’s interesting now, because we can watch it and see; we can go, ‘Oh, wow, that was actually our first real kiss.’ As soon as the movie wrapped, we went back to L.A. and were together, and together ever since — never broken up. That’s nine years.” See the cutest pics of their romance
