Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum celebrate 7th wedding anniversary on Instagram
If America held a prom, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum would undoubtedly be crowned our prom king and queen, not just because the two of them can slay any other couple on the dance floor, but because they seem to be genuinely infatuated with each other. But while some couples gushing over each other makes us want to gag, with these two, seeing their mushy sides just makes us to be their third wheel and hang out with them all the time.
The couple celebrated their seventh wedding anniversary yesterday. They took to Instagram to give each other a special shout out. Dewan Tatum’s was sweet:
Did they have to practice that tongue meld thing for a while? Or do you think they’re just that perfect for each other?
Tatum’s anniversary message was spicy.

He calls her Cake. How freaking cute is that?
The couple met 11 years ago in 2006 when they co-starred together in Step Up. (If you haven’t seen it, yup, it’s a dance movie and in spite of the high school back drop it’s just as hot as you’d imagine so Amazon Prime that bad boy now and you’ll have it in time for the weekend.) They’ve been married seven years and have a two-year-old daughter, Everly. And yes, Tatum is awwwwmazing when it comes to the Mother’s Day shout outs too:
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!
Hollywood couple or not, keeping the spark in a relationship alive after kids is tough. But these two are always giving us #relationshipgoals with their Instagram snaps. They didn’t even have to make any corny, tired jokes about the seven-year-itch ( I took care of that for them. You’re welcome.) While it’s clear they’re rocking it as parents, when it comes to their anniversary, they keep the focus just on their relationship, not their daughter. It’s refreshing to see a couple who exists separate and apart from their roles as mom and dad. They take actually pictures together without their kid — and not just selfies.

As much as we all like to joke how badly we want Channing Tatum to ourselves, it’s obvious he and his wife are hopelessly in love. May they have many more anniversaries like this one, and may we all console ourselves with tickets to Magic Mike Live.
