He may have been quoted as saying he's a little terrified of impending fatherhood, but on Sunday night Channing Tatum (who strolled down the Oscars red carpet with his wife, "American Horror Story" actress and mom-to-be Jenna Dewan) looked calm, composed and incredibly suave in a bow tie and tux.

Mrs. Dewan-Tatum was also very composed in her lacy dress, and told E!'s Ryan Seacrest that "I have a few more months" before giving birth. That'll dovetail nicely with Tatum's busy filming schedule, and means they'll be having the child on the other side of the pond. "We're going to actually have the baby in London while I'm shooting, and there'll be no downtime whatsoever after that," said the actor.

Tatum's stripper film "Magic Mike" may have been overlooked by voters, but he seemed to hint he might have a role onstage at the Oscars anyway.

Oscar nominees and presenters show off their stunning outfits as they arrive to celebrate the best movies of the year.

"With Seth MacFarlane (in charge), you don't know what could possibly happen," he grinned, and when asked whether the Oscar host might need some support for his routine, Tatum hinted, "I don't know, maybe people will be getting naked, I'm not sure, we'll see."

Since People's Sexiest Man Alive was once a stripper himself, he should be quite comfortable getting out of the tux should that be called for later in the evening. "It's not my first time at the rodeo," he chuckled, before heading off down the carpet.
