Channing And Jenna's Marriage Ended 17 Months Ago, Today Their Lives Look Very Different
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan were married for nine years and she's just announced she's expecting a baby with her boyfriend of four months.
Jenna Dewan, 38, and her boyfriend, Steve Kazee, 43, have confirmed they are expecting their first child together in a joint statement with People.
"We are beyond overjoyed and couldn't be happier to be expanding our family!" they told the publication.
Jenna then shared her pregnancy on Instagram, writing, "Becoming a mother is quite simply the absolute best most incredible thing that has ever happened to me."
"@stevekazee you are a gift from above and I couldn’t be more excited to be expanding our family together...! Thank you guys for all the love!!"
Jenna's message was accompanied by a picture of her growing baby bump while she lay alongside her daughter, Everly, in what appears to be her pink and purple bed surrounded by fairy lights.
Jenna shares her six-year-old daughter with her ex-husband, Channing Tatum, 39, announcing their separation in April of 2018 after nine years of marriage.
“We have something we would like to share,” the joint statement they shared on Instagram read.
First off, it feels odd that we have to share this kind of thing with everyone, but it’s a consequence of the lives we’ve chosen to lead, which we also happen to be deeply grateful for…
"We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple. We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together.”
Jenna and Channing -- who met in 2006 on set of the first 'Step Up' movie -- made sure to note at the time that there were no “secrets nor salacious events” that lead to the end of their marriage and that they would not be commenting further following their joint statement.
Jenna began seeing Steve, an actor, in the second half of last year, with E! News reporting that they were first seen together at a Halloween party.
"They have been dating for a few months. She was introduced to him by mutual friends and they hit it off right away. Jenna really likes him and is very happy," they reported at the time.
The pair made their relationship 'Instagram official' in June as Jenna shared a photo of herself with Steve, captioning it with: "Speaking of peace."
Channing, on the other hand, is currently dating singer Jessie J, 31, and has not commented on Jenna and Steve's pregnancy news, given he is currently on a break, explaining in August that he would be taking a step back from social media on his Instagram page.
Channing's relationship with Jessie was first suspected in November last year when she was seen leaving the actor's home in the morning. Jessie later shared that they were dating on Instagram when she tagged him in pictures from the opening night of the Magic Mike Live show he appeared in.
Jessie recently performed a meaningful song she wrote about Channing in West Hollywood as her boyfriend cheered her on from the audience. In the song, she sings about wanting to follow Channing where ever he goes.
"Where you go I want to follow, let's make a promise today. Let's be still, just stay calm, so we're not rushing what we are," she sang.
" Pressure on, just have fun, it's not a race no need to run. If it's forever, let's simply be in love."
