Last year, Jenna Dewan-Tatum revealed that her husband, Channing Tatum, beat-boxes to get their infant daughter Everly to stop crying.
The “Witches of East End” star is now revealing their method for getting the baby, who was born last June, to fall asleep. Dewan-Tatum says Everly likes to listen to Drake and Prince to soothe her to sleep.
“She is obsessed with Drake’s ‘Hold on, We’re Going Home.’ If I put that on, she will sleep in five seconds. Prince’s ‘The Most Beautiful Girl in the World’ also lulls her to sleep,” the 33-year-old actress said in the January issue of Ocean Drive magazine. “There’s no nursery rhymes, no sweet nursery music to put her down. She is like, ‘No, please. I like the hits.’”
Of course, new dad Tatum entertains his daughter as well. “He’s Mr. Play Funtime Dad. So every time he comes in, he’s singing to her. He holds her and dances around and she’s laughing. She literally lights up when he walks in the room,” she said.
Dewan-Tatum is also trying to squeeze in sleep while balancing motherhood and filming for the small screen.
“I’m learning to just try and find it as much as I can for a couple of hours,” she told the magazine. “You get a nap in there, and it builds up — and then you get the day where you’re like, ‘Oh my God, can somebody watch her for five hours? I need to go to sleep!’”
