Sexiest Genes Alive!

Yesterday, People magazine officially declared Channing Tatum their 2012 Sexiest Man Alive. Today, Page Six shared a photo of Channing's great-great-great-grandfather, which was dug up by Ancestry.com.

Channing's super-G was a soldier named John A. Ross, shown in his Confederate soldier uniform. (Channing has Southern roots. He was born in Alabama and raised there, as well as Mississippi and Florida.)

Grandpa looks pretty serious in his photo — check it out here — but it's clear Channing got his slick hair from this guy. He’s pretty hot!
