Congrats! Jenna Dewan is pregnant and expecting her first child with boyfriend Steve Kazee, Us Weekly confirmed on September 24. The actress also shares her 6-year-old daughter, Everly, with her ex-husband, Channing Tatum. The World of Dance star, 38, and Broadway stud, 43, have been going strong for about a year and are about to begin a very big chapter together.
The pair were first romantically connected in October 2018 but recently celebrated the 1-year anniversary of adopting a puppy together. They’ve kept their relationship pretty low-key and usually only share their WWE date nights but it’s obvious that they are crazy about each other. Steve took a moment to gush over the brunette beauty in a sweet Valentine’s Day post on Instagram.
“Somehow, inexplicably, I’ve been granted the honor to have this be the person that I get to be side by side with throughout this wild journey we call life,” he began the romantic caption. “Jenna I don’t know what I did to deserve your love but I will always be so thankful that our lives found their way to each other. Here’s looking at you, kid. Happy Valentines Day my love.”
Jenna and Channing, 39, announced their divorce in April 2018, but the exes seem to have a great relationship and amicably coparent their daughter. The Magic Mike actor is currently in a relationship with singer Jessie J. “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.”
It turns out that the Step Up costars have been preparing themselves to have a blended family since their split. “Channing and Jenna know that other children, on both their parts, are probably in their future, and that’s not a problem,” the source added. “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.”
Congrats to Jenna and Steve — we can’t wait to meet your new addition!
