He's a Magic man indeed!

People magazine just named Channing Tatum the Sexiest Man Alive for 2012, which most of us already knew because the scoop was spoiled last week. Whatever, he's still sexy! (Although they really could've found a sexier shot to use on the cover...)

The Magic Mike star was surprised to be told he'd gotten the magazine's gold star. "My first thought was, 'Y'all are messing with me,'" he told People. He said his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, now calls him The Sexiest Man Alive, which she was probably already doing since that's one of the many reasons to want to marry him. Speaking of those many reasons, Jenna said, "People know him to be fun and sexy, but they don't know how emotionally deep and spiritually open he is. He is such an open-hearted person; what you see is what you get."

Aww! We'll all have to pick up this week's People, because not only does the mag have more about Channing, it boasts details on "more than 180 of your favorite sexiest men." Twist our arms already!

Are you happy that Channing got the Sexiest title? Should we keep this news from Ryan Gosling or do you think he already knows? At least his last name made the cover...
