Channing Tatum, 32, recently said that he wanted to take a year off of acting. Nearly a year ago his wife Jenna Dewan, 32, said that she’d like to have children: “I just don’t know when. When it’s meant to be, it will happen.”

Tatum and Dewan-Tatum reps confirmed the two ”are pleased to announce that they are expecting the birth of their first child next year,” according to People.

This will be the first bundle for the actors who sparked on the set of 2006’s “Step Up” and got hitched in March 2009.

“The first number that pops into my head is three,” Tatum told the magazine about his ideal brood, “but I just want one to be healthy and then we’ll see where we go after that.”

Congrats to the couple and stay tuned to the TNR for more Hollywood family fare.
