The singer said he'll speak off the cuff — and "from the heart" — when he toasts Zoë and Channing Tatum at their upcoming nuptials
The "Fly Away" singer, 59, said he plans to speak off the cuff when he gives his father-of-the-bride toast at Zoë's upcoming nuptials to fiancé Channing Tatum.
"It just comes at the moment. I don't rehearse those things," he told Entertainment Tonight at the Critics Choice Awards on Sunday.
Instead of preparing a speech, he'll speak "from the heart" when he offers a few words in honor of the newlywed couple, he said.
Earlier this month, when asked about Zoë's engagement to Tatum, 43, Lenny told ET, "Hey, man. That's life."
He also expressed his happiness that the Big Little Lies star, 35, has found her match in Tatum. "When your family is happy, when your child is happy, that's it — I've done well. Blessed,” the proud dad said of Zoë, whom he shares with ex Lisa Bonet.
Multiple sources confirmed the pair's engagement to PEOPLE back in October. At the time, Zoë and Tatum — who were first romantically linked in 2021 — were photographed leaving a Halloween party together, with Zoë sporting a ring on that finger.
The actress offered a rare glimpse into her relationship with Tatum in November 2022, telling GQ that the Magic Mike's Last Dance star is "a wonderful human."

She revealed that she and her then-boyfriend bond over their affinity for analyzing the craft of movie making.
"He makes me laugh and we both really love art and talking about art and the exploration of why we do what we do," she explained. "We love to watch a film and break it down and talk about it and challenge each other."
"Whether it was making me tea or pouring me a drink or going to whip someone into shape or whatever — he really was my protector and it was really wonderful and sweet," she told GQ of Tatum, who starred in the film as tech entrepreneur Slater King.
Zoë said his kindness and attentiveness was a good measure of the kind of partner he is. "I think if you can do something like that together, it's a good test. And we came out even stronger," she noted.
