Last week, Channing (all over your) Tatum released the first ever public picture of his newborn daughter, Everly, by posting it on Facebook. It also featured his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, and was captioned "First Father's Day with my girls!"

Now, Tatum has cleared the air about why he decided to upload the photo, and it's basically because the world is comprised of vultures and those vultures won't be appeased until they see EVERY. CELEB. BABY. EVER.

Tatum told ET Canada that:

“We didn’t want to go through a tabloid — 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.”

Hopefully all of us can respect Tatum's ridiculously good-looking privacy at this time.
