It was always meant to be for Jenna Dewan and Steve Kazee. The 39-year-old dished about what it was like when she and the Broadway actor first met, and it’s bound to melt your heart.

“You just know if you have it,” she told Entertainment Tonight during an interview published on Monday, December 2. “It’s the sparks that fly and it just works really well. I am in a really great place and totally in love. It’s nice.” Aw, they’re the perfect match!

After roughly a year of dating, the couple announced that they’re expecting their first child together, and they couldn’t be more excited. “Becoming a mother is quite simply the absolute best most incredible thing that has ever happened to me,” she wrote on Instagram in September. “@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.”

The Once alum also shared some sweet words expressing how he feels and naturally, he couldn’t help but not only gush about Jenna and their baby, but also Everly — Jenna’s 6-year-old daughter, whom she shares with ex Channing Tatum.

“Jenna also brought with her one of the greatest gifts one could ever imagine … her beautiful daughter,” he captioned an IG post. Evie burst into my life like a supernova and has continued to burn so brightly in it. I have learned so much about parenting already from watching how amazing Jenna is with her and Evie has taught me so much about what it means to love and communicate with a child and I can’t wait to give her a sibling and make our little family a little bit bigger.”

It turns out, Everly is just as over the moon with joy to welcome the new addition. “She’s really excited,” Jenna told the outlet about her firstborn. “She’s really protective. It’s been cute. She’s worried about what I’m eating, making sure it’s healthy. When I say, ‘Mommy needs to sit down and take a break,’ she totally gets it. She hugs and cuddles the belly.”

Jenna continued, “I mean, it’s really been adorable. You never know how it’s gonna go, and so far she’s been so excited. And she tells the entire world. Everyone. Everyone, every way. Even people that check us out at stores. She’s like, ‘Does she know my mom’s pregnant?’ They’re like, ‘We can see.'”

We bet Evie is going to make the best big sister!
