Jenna Dewan-Tatum took her baby bump to the beach!

The bikini-clad actress showed off her new pregnancy curves while vacationing with her husband, Channing Tatum, in St. Barts on Dec. 28. If the "Magic Mike" actor has his way, their firstborn child will be his mini-me!

In the Dec. 31 issue of Us Weekly, a Tatum pal reveals that the sporty star, 32, "will be happy no matter what the baby is, but he'd love to have a little boy to throw the ball around with." (His wife, 32, announced her pregnancy on Dec. 17.)
