Channing Tatum “always” gets his daughter “flowers” for Valentine’s Day

It’s Valentine’s Day in Channing Tatum’s household, which includes the usual holiday accoutrements and perhaps a visit tonight from the Night Ninja, USA Today reports.

According to the report, the actor and co-director of the new buddy dramedy Dog (in theatres Friday) does “the normal Valentine’s Day stuff that dads do” with his eighth-year-old daughter Everly, Tatum tells USA TODAY. “I definitely always get her flowers. She loves roses and just flowers in general.” And while there are no specific V-Day plans, Tatum says one of his favorite dad-daughter activities involves late-night art projects.

“We do a thing called ‘Night Ninja’ where after bedtime every once in a while, I’ll sneak back into her room, ‘break her out’ of the house, go down to the barn and do art for exactly 37 minutes,” Tatum explains. “And then we run back up and sneak her back into her room and go to sleep.”

Everly, who Tatum shares with ex-wife Jenna Dewan, was the inspiration for his 2021 children’s book “The One and Only Sparkella.” There’s now a planned Sparkella trilogy, with the sequel “The One and Only Sparkella Makes a Plan” arriving May 31.
