Channing’s birthday Instagram post to his wife is the sweetest thing
Jenna Dewan Tatum and Channing Tatum are eternally our #RelationshipGoals, and not just because they’re both incredibly talented and otherworldly good-looking and somehow merged into one talented and good-looking pair. In this sad world of seemingly perfect couples like Anna Faris and Chris Pratt divorcing, the Tatums give us hope that Hollywood love can last — and make us melt.
In a recent Instagram post, Channing Tatum made us wish he was all of our husbands (like, more than usual) when he shared a stunning photo of his beautiful wife and a touching message to wish her a happy birthday. Seriously, I’m a puddle after reading it.
He writes, “This creature is one more year beautiful. The transformation she invoked this year has been something they only write about in books of fairytale and magic. Your strength and grace ever evolving. By doing so you make everything around you grow- everything. And i am so very grateful for your lessons. Happy life day my love.”
Oh, the sweetness. My heart may burst. I’m not normally one for social media relationship sap, but this is so far beyond the usual gaggy “OMG MY HUBBY IS THE BEST” posts clogging your Facebook feed. This is from the very bottom of his heart, which is clearly fully belonging to one Jenna Dewan Tatum.
The photo he chose is one of her in minimal makeup, looking like an actual goddess. Tatum points out her “strength and grace,” in literal awe of her. He’s got his wife on such a gloriously high pedestal, but even if she toppled off, he would undoubtedly be there to catch her. These two are simply perfect together, and instead of being jealous, I’m freaking inspired by their love.
Of course, it’s not the first time Tatum has shouted his wife’s praises from the rooftops (or Instagram, whatever, he has like 15 million followers, that’s more than he could reach from any roof). He’s talked her up on social media for their anniversary, her birthday (every year), to shout out her mothering skills, and for no reason other than her looking super sexy while taking a naked nap. Tatum takes any opportunity to remind the world just how amazing his wife is — and how much he loves her.
And if you want a little crash course in making a marriage this incredible, note that Dewan Tatum gives back exactly what she receives.
Are you basking in the glow of their love yet? They sort of give us no choice in the matter, but we aren’t complaining. These two are downright inspiring as a couple and we wish them a zillion more wonderful birthdays and anniversaries together. As long as they continue to provide swoon-worthy photos and tributes to each other that we get to sigh over, that is.
