Los Angeles: Actor Channing Tatum, who is expecting his first child with wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum, says fatherhood will be an intense experience.

He says he can`t wait to be a dad, but admits it will be challenging.

"The rest of this year is going to be pretty nuts. Even during having the baby -- the baby-having process, it`s going to be intense," showbizspy.com quoted Tatum as saying.

The 32-year-old previously revealed that he is terrified, but excited about the impending birth.

"I mean, I don`t think there is one thing that doesn`t terrify you, but in the most unbelievably beautiful way.

"Someone said it is really like watching your heart jump out of your body and run around, and I think that can possibly be the coolest thing that I have heard of," he said.
