Channing stayed at home to babysit the couple's four-year-old daughter Everly. "He is so happy to have a night off, yes," Tatum said when asked if Chan was on daddy duty.

"I took his place tonight," Emmanuelle Chriqui quipped.

The two longtime friends, who met through Justin Timberlake, prepped at Emmanuelle's place. "We just had the most fun, get-ready glam session," Jenna said. "We took over her house and had like 20 people in there. It takes 20 people for all this."
