Congratulations are in order for Jenna Dewan and her boyfriend Steve Kazee, who are expecting their first child together.
The couple shared the news with People saying, ““We are beyond overjoyed and couldn’t be happier to be expanding our family!”
The new baby will be the first child for the couple but the second for Jenna who shares a 6-year-old daughter Everly with ex-husband Channing Tatum.
News broke that Jenna and Steve had been dating in October 2018. Steve is an actor and singer who won the 2012 Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical for Once.
In April 2018, Jenna and her ex Channing shared the news via social media, that they would be splitting after 9 years of marriage.
“We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple,” they wrote. “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. Sending lots of love to everyone, Chan&Jenna.”
While Jenna and Steve have kept their relationship private, they occasionally share moments of their journey together on social media. This past Valentine’s day, Steve raved about having Jenna in his life.
“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 wrote. “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 ❤️.”
Congratulations to the happy couple.
