New dad Channing Tatum, 33, is already back to work after the birth of baby Everly, promoting his is newest flick, White House Down. At the movie's premiere last night (Monday, June 24), the handsome star opened up about fatherhood and the baby photo he recently shared — and he had some advice for new parents.

In an interview with dad-to-be Extra's A.J. Calloway, Channing offered this sweet piece of new-fatherly advice: "I'll give you some baby advice: You're not going to do anything for the first six months. You're just like, 'Can I have the baby at some point today?' You're never going to be so excited when something poos."

Awww! Love him.

And with our friends at ET Canada, Tatum shared why he and Jenna, 32, opted to share a photo of baby Everly via Facebook. "We didn't want to go through a tabloid," he explained. "We just wanted to let it out so paparazzi would stop trying to hound us. You know, 'Here it is, that's it. Now, let us be.'"

"Those first few's just ridiculous," he said. "All I can really do is just sit there and change diapers . . . and get them food. Whatever they want."

Oooo, and get this! Channing says there may be "Irish twins" in his future....
