"It was a total surprise," an insider tells Us of the pregnancy, adding that Tatum, 32, is taking a full year off to be with his expectant spouse and their baby-to-be, due sometime in 2013. (Incidentally, the 21 Jump Street actor told Entertainment Weekly recently that he wanted to step back from acting to focus on a few behind-the-scenes projects with his production partner, Reid Carolin, who wrote the screenplay for Magic Mike.)
