Channing Tatum's Take on His Wife's Pregnancy Drives Us Mad

Rant 27

Channing Tatum pregnancyChanning Tatum adores his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum and her pregnancy is no exception. The man voted sexiest man alive admitted to a reporter that he finds this time in his wife's life very, very sexy. This is as it should be. Kudos to Tatum.

The reality is, few women FEEL sexy (I know I didn't). You are, after all, carrying a bowling ball on your bladder, sporting a bizarre new center of gravity, and waddling about like a duck. But you are bursting with new life. You are blooming and blossoming and you are about as sexy as you can be. Believe me, I know you don't feel it. Lord knows I didn't. I complained bitterly and called myself a cow. I hated the changes.

It's only now, five years after my last pregnancy, that I can look back and say, dang, was I hot. I totally miss that. Because you know what? It IS hot!

Tatum is totally right with his words. At some point, not too long after their baby comes into this world, his wife will regain her taut abs and her tight body. Hollywood stars bounce back. It's a fact. So why wouldn't he enjoy this nine-month exploration of a different kind of sexy.

Men should be in AWE of women during this time. We are creating life. What the hell is sexier than that?

It's not just the way you look either. A pregnancy is direct evidence that you are a sexual being and that you had sex.

This week, a writer talked about her husband's experience in the delivery room and how it turned him off. I asked my husband to read it and asked him if he felt the same way. He said the opposite. "If anything, it turned me on." I laughed. But he was serious.

I was giving birth to his child (and um, nude and moaning while doing it on a stool). He was present with me in an animalistic, totally awesome way, and yeah, he kind of dug it. We don't need to go that far, obviously. But it would be nice if every man could kind of see what Tatum does. Pregnancy and delivery are a beautiful, alive, and blooming time of life.

That IS sexy. Think of all that is sensual on this Earth -- sunshine, overripe mangoes, juicy fruits -- all of it is embodied by a pregnant woman. So yeah. The next time you feel unsexy and like your husband will never want to touch you again, think of Channing Tatum. The man is the hottest man alive and he wants his wife more than ever when she is carrying his baby.


Did you feel sexy during pregnancy?

I got hit on all the time when I was pregnant. Way more then when I wasn't that's for sure. I don't know why and it use to upset me. I didn't want men checking me out - as far as I was concerned I was a oversized load. I think they just liked the idea that they couldn't get me pregnant.

my (ex) husband thought it is and was disugsting and a horrific change on my body. He wouldnt touch me nor "love" me in any way...i always wanted him though, and it upset me so much that he found me that replusive....needless to say he found someone else when I got pregnant with our second child, and left me and the kids....not all men have the same views

My partners hands go for my stomach first always. At almost 20 weeks its a great feeling. My other 2 pregnancies the dad didn't touch me at all and wanted nothing to do with me. It also helps my breasts are almost 3 times their 'normal' size as well. And only going to get bigger. My partner makes me feel beautiful and it makes me fall more in love with him every day.

I love this article, and you are absolutely right. It IS a beautiful, hot and amazing time of your (AND your husband's) life. I can imagine a vast majority of women who say their men were repulsed by them during pregnancy/labor wind up divorced.. because it's a sign that there is something far more inately wrong with your marriage than being pregnant. I read the article that woman wrote earlier this week and was disgusted by her telling women that this could happen to them. Just because her marriage sucks, doesn't mean everyone else's does too.. and I am right on your same page. My man could not want me MORE during this time. I'm 8 months pregnant now w/ my second and we are ON FIRE in the sack. We were before and after my daughter as well.

Yea I definatly never got the feeling that my husband thought I was more attractive. I had to force him to do anything with me at all.

Yeah...I really don't understand it because I hated (and am still struggling to come to terms with) my stretchmarks and the way that i was gaining weight and everything, but it totally turned my husband on (and frankly, the stretchmarks never bothered him after the baby was born either, he thought it was just lingering hottness I guess lol).

My partner keeps asking when he can get me pregnant again, lol, he says he loves my shape. I cringe when I look in the mirror, my butt and hips are huge, my boobs have gone up a size or two, not to mention the buttload of stretch marks and all the other joys of pregnancy. But.. he keeps telling me he loves it, he thinks its adorable that I waddle, he says he loves that my butt and hips are getting bigger, and says I've never been sexier. He rubs my belly everyday and tells me how much he loves me for bringing his daughter into this world. I feel so lucky to have him because my ex husband barely touched me or my belly when I was prenant with my son. I feel blessed to have a man who finds me sexy and is excited about the miracle of life <3

  How are "sunshine, overripe mangoes, juicy fruits embodied by a pregnant woman"? That doesn't even make sense.

My husband thinks I'm so sexy while pregnant (yes even with all the pregnancy effects :):))

After the birth of our first, he was in such awe and thought of me as no less than superwoman lol. He couldn't stop with how encouraging and supportive he was.

It's only continued in my life as his wife and mother and on our 2nd pregnancy
