Channing Tatum has penned a beautiful essay on what he wants for his daughter as she grows up, and there's a 90% chance it will make you cry all the ugly tears.
In a new piece for Cosmopolitan, the actor revealed that his new Las Vegas show Magic Mike LIVE has a very specific goal to help show women "…what it’s like to exist in a world where men really listen to them, where they treat them like goddesses, and where they can feel comfortable and proud to express the full force of their sexual energy together."
He continued on to say that, as a father to a daughter, he realises 3-year-old Everly Tatum will have a lot of struggles to face as she grows up.
"I don’t want her looking to the outside world for answers," he said. "My highest hope for her is just that she has the fearlessness to always be her authentic self, no matter what she thinks men want her to be."
Channing wrote that one of the main reasons he fell for wife Jenna Dewan was her fearlessness, and that he hopes Everly inherits this from her mother. UGH! Like we weren't crying enough already.
"We live in a society that has trained men and women to play certain kinds of roles for a long time, and the beauty of this amazing moment we’re living in is that we’re finally starting to break free from those roles,” he added. "Women, especially, are realizing that they no longer have to conform to certain standards of social and sexual behavior, and this changes what they need from men and the role of men in general."
