Channing Tatum is on a career high right now: He starred in three hit movies in 2012 Magic Mike, The Vow, and 21 Jump Street; he has several more on the way in 2013; and he received affirmation of his sexiness from People magazine. Also winning in his personal life, the 32-year-old actor is going to become a first-time dad within the next several months.

But he’s not so busy cranking out movies and babies that he can’t take part in Throwback Thursday.

Channing posted the following image (from his Cutest Kid Alive days) to WhoSay on February 28, writing, “They called me Chan Man.”

 

And now they call him the Sexiest Man Alive.
