Just because Channing Tatum is A-OK with his ex-wife, Jenna Dewan, moving on, doesn’t mean that he wants the pair’s daughter, Everly, to have a new father figure in her life. “He doesn’t mind Jenna dating Steve [Kazee], he’s dating Jessie J, but he does mind them enjoying a Father’s Day outing,” a source exclusively revealed to Life & Style. “It just didn’t feel right.”
“Channing and Jenna are on the same page about not sending mixed signals to their daughter, but also letting her see that mommy and daddy get along and have new, special friends in their lives,” the source continued. “But this hit him hard.”
Despite this Father’s Day snafu, Channing, 39, and Jenna, 38, have devised a plan to lessen any tension that may arise in the future — especially if either of them decides to have kids with their respective partners. “Channing and Jenna know that other children, on both their parts, are probably in their future, and that’s not a problem,” an additional source previously told Life & Style.
“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,” the insider noted. “They’ll cross that bridge when they get there, but it looks like they will eventually get there.” At the end of the day, it seems the former flames share the same goal.
“Jenna and Channing just want the other to be happy and make sure that Everly is always safe and in appropriate surroundings,” the source assured. “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.”
There you have it, ladies and gentlemen, coparenting peacefully is entirely possible. We stan!
