"Magic Mike" star Channing Tatum is People's "Sexiest Man Alive" for 2012.

But although he won fame for his male stripper moves this past year, the 32-year-old actor is no playboy.

Married to actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum since 2009, Tatum is also a sculptor who quotes Edgar Allan Poe, loves to give her massages and can't wait to start a family, People magazine reported.

He told his wife about his latest honor when they were covered in stinky water after giving their dogs, who had been "skunked," a wash in the bathtub.

"Yeah, she calls me [the Sexiest Man Alive] now," Tatum joked.

Tatum follows in the footsteps of past “Sexiest” honorees and Hollywood heavyweights such as George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp and, most recently, Bradley Cooper.

People’s “Sexiest Man Alive" 2012 issue hits newsstands this Friday.
