Regrets? Channing Tatum has a few. It’s been just three months since he and Jenna Dewan announced their devastating split after nearly nine years of marriage, but the Magic Mike star, 38, is already having second thoughts.
“Channing is miserable. He misses Jenna and the life they had,” a source exclusively tells Life & Style. “Channing would get back together with her in a heartbeat — and he’s told her that. The ball’s in her court now.” The heartthrob “could date anyone he wanted,” the source notes, but he’s not interested in moving on from the mother of their five-year-old daughter, Everly.
Friends aren’t sure the World of Dance host, 37, will give him another chance, though. “I was always very happy being a wife,” Jenna recently said. “[But] I feel a sense of joy and freedom and excitement, truly, about a new chapter in my life.”
The source continued to tell Life & Style that “Jenna knows how Channing feels, but no one knows what she’ll do.”
The couple announced their split on April 2 in an emotional Instagram post. “Hey world! So… We have something we would like to share,” the post began. “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’re living in an incredible moment in time, but it’s also a time where truth can easily get distorted into ‘alternative facts’ so we want to share the truth so you know that if you didn’t read it here then it’s most certainly fiction.”
The duo continued, “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. Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now. There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision — just two best friends realizing it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible. We are still a family and will always be loving, dedicated parents to Everly. We won’t be commenting beyond this, and we thank you all in advance for respecting our family’s privacy.”
