Families are expanding, y’all! Channing Tatum and his ex-wife, Jenna Dewan, are in new, loving relationships — and they want to make sure they’re prepared for growing their families with their shared daughter, 5-year-old Everly.
“Jenna and Channing just want the other to be happy and make sure that Everly is always safe and in appropriate surroundings,” an insider explained to Life & Style exclusively. “That’s pretty much their only objective. They understand better than anyone that life goes on after divorce, and that they’ll always have Everly in common.”
For the former couple, their biggest concern is their daughter and making sure she is comfortable with the new families they’re creating — but it seems like the tiny tot is just as excited as they are to add another sibling (or two) into the mix.
“Channing and Jenna know that other children, on both their parts, are probably in their future, and that’s not a problem,” the source continued. “In fact, blended families are very normal and Everly hasn’t stopped asking about when she’s going to get a baby sister or brother. They’ll cross that bridge when they get there, but it looks like they will eventually get there.”
It’s good the exes have started talking about the prospect of more kids, because the love train has seriously left the station in their new relationships. The 39-year-old actor has been seeing singer Jessie J, while the 38-year-old dancer is smitten over her boyfriend, Steve Kazee.
“Channing and Jessie are still going strong and they’ve taken their romance to a whole new level,” an insider told Life & Style. “They’ve already met each other’s parents and are planning a future. Yes, they’ve talked about marriage and starting a family. It’s serious.”
Meanwhile, the future is bright for Jenna and her beau, too. “Things are going so well that they’re already living together,” the insider dished. “He’s great with Everly and that’s encouraging to Jenna, who’d like a couple more kids when the time’s right.”
