Channing Tatum, 33, has discovered a new talent since becoming a dad: beatboxing!

Channing’s wife, actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum, 32, says he beatboxes to soothe their four-month-old baby, Everly; and it works like a charm! The Witches of East End star shared this little tidbit today (Oct. 2) on The Ellen Show.

“The baby is crying and you’re like, ‘What do I do to make her stop crying?'” Jenna tells Ellen Degeneres. “And all of a sudden [Tatum] starts beatboxing and she starts cooing. I’m like, ‘What?’ I have been rocking her. I have been swaying her. I’ve been doing squats and he gets here and he’s like . . . I’m not going to do a really bad beatboxing but….”

Jenna says they’re so into beatboxing now that they have beatboxing conversations together. Ha!

“It’s like the one thing he knows he can do,” Jenna says. “He’s like, ‘Let me get in there. Let me change those diapers.'”

And for a big guy, Channing’s definitely been getting in touch with his sensitive side. “He’s like this really strong big guy in life,” says Jenna, “but you give him this little baby and he’s like, ‘Oh my god…Is she going to drop? Am I doing everything okay?'”
