Magic Mike star Channing Tatum just celebrated his 37th birthday. His daughter Evie made sure it was a candy-coated celebration with the most impressive, kid-decorated cake we’ve seen in quite some time!
Channing’s wife Jenna posted a pic of the amazing blue-iced cake in question to Instagram, and we are one part wanting a slice and one part getting some kind of wild sugar-high-brain-freeze just thinking about eating this.
In a shot captioned “Happy birthday daddy” Jenna showed off daughter Evie’s sophisticated sugar work, much to the delight of her followers’ delight. The cake is light on punctuation but heavy on sweet embellishment, a white-piped message reading – “I love you daddy, I made this cake for you, love Evie”.
Evie possibly organised her minions to pipe the heartfelt message. OR she might be a genius. We’re not quite sure. Evie has innovatively used lollies to illustrate her love for her dad, going for the kind of more-is-more approach that most 3-year-0lds excitedly subscribe to.

Channing and Jenna first met back in 2006 on the set of the movie Step Up. They married in 2009 and their daughter Everly (Evie) was born in 2013. It’s an enduring match by Hollywood’s standards.
Jenna has made her name as a dancer and actor, best known for her roles in Step Up and American Horror Story: Asylum. Channing was first spotted on our screens in Ricky Martin’s She Bangs! video and went on to model for Ford Models and act, with roles in 21 Jump Street and Magic Mike.
Back in 2016, Channing shared his thoughts on the transformation parenting can bring in an Instagram post dedicated to – and about – wife Jenna.
“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.”
“You can’t put it back in there”
Of his own journey from celebrated shirt-off-screen-hottie to dad he told Vanity Fair it was “scary”.
“You made this thing and have to bring it into the world together. You think people are going to be there, but ultimately you just have each other. Knock on wood, everything goes well, now you have a baby. They’re like, ‘OK, here you go.’ They hand it to you, and you’re like, ‘Uh, wait a minute. Aren’t you guys going to come home with us and make sure we’re not screwing this thing up?’”
He figured it was a universal, if slightly terrifying, moment.
“I think every parent has that moment where they’re like, ‘Oh, maybe this was a bad idea; We don’t know how to do this.’ You can’t put it back in there. It doesn’t go that direction.”
Wise words, Tatum. Happy (belated) birthday!

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!
