Channing Tatum: I am fat and happy

Channing Tatum has confessed that he has piled on the pounds - but is totally happy with his fuller figure.

The actor - who has shown off his toned physique in films such as Magic Mike, Step Up and Side Effects and was once named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive - revealed on Ellen DeGeneres' chat show that he needed a break so has let himself plump up a bit.

When teased about how he's always being asked to take his clothes off, Channing admitted: "You definitely don't want that right now."

The actor - who became a dad last year when he and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum welcomed daughter Everly - added: "Right now - what me and my wife like to call it, I am very 'fappy'.

"I'm very fat and happy right now ... I've been working for two straight years, and now it's some really needed downtime."

Channing has previously said he loves pigging out between movies.

The actor told US Cosmopolitan last year: "I'm a fat kid on the inside. I love food so much, and I fluctuate about 25-30 pounds between movies."
