Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum put on a united front for their daughter, Everly
Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum are still figuring out how to accept the new normal after their split. But as they mentioned, they are still family for their daughter Everly.
Jenna Dewan and estranged husband Channing Tatum were recently spotted putting on a united and cordial front for parent duties for their five-year-old daughter Everly. As parents, separation is never easy for children. But the two seemed like they were on good terms at their daughter's school. While Jenna was seen carrying Everly into a classroom in Los Angeles, Channing was pictured following the two ladies into the building. Their decision to split after being together for a solid nine years broke the hearts of several fans, for they were truly one of the most squee-inducing couples in Hollywood.
For the school run, Jenna, 37, picked a stunning pale pink off-shoulder dress. The Elsa Mini frock by Endless Summer showcased ladybug print that added a youthfulness to her look. He wavy hair was a let down; however, it flowed naturally. She put on a soft berry color on her lips, adding to the summery look, which she pulled off quite well.
Channing, 38, wore a t-shirt and jeans, and topped it with a woolen cardigan. He too added an element of youthfulness to his outfit by pairing his look with a backward cap and colorful shoes.
Jenna opened up to Harper’s Bazaar about her life after her marriage with Channing ended. She said: “I feel a sense of joy and freedom and excitement, truly, about a new chapter in my life. And I have no attachments to how that's going to look, or what that's going to be. I feel really open, and I feel hopeful.” She also addressed her current relationship with her estranged husband of nine years. Jenna said: “We’re just getting used to it. We're in a very positive energy together, trying to be the best parents to Everly. We support each other.”
The couple fell in love on the sets of ‘Step Up.' When talking about her first few interactions with Channing during their chemistry read, she said, "Chemistry is not always romantic, it's an ease. Can you talk to this person easily? And that, I knew, happened. I was like, ‘We can really talk to each other.'" Their stunning chemistry definitely lasted through the course of their marriage. They were always perceived as easy going and in love.
Back then, the couple even talked about their sex lives, to People Magazine and appeared on an entertaining episode of the ‘Lip Sync Battle’ where Jenna took on a ‘Magic Mike’ inspired performance. Fans worshipped them, for their relationship was based on equality and mutual respect.
The couple announced their decision to split with similar messages on social media, which read: “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.”
Talking about her life post the spilt, Jenna told Harper’s Bazaar’s that it has been more about self-development on a more spiritual level rather than anything else. She said: "The moves I'm making are completely not related to my marriage or separation, interestingly enough. I was always very happy being a wife." She talked about how her decisions have more to do with questions like who she is and what excites her. She wanted to expand help own life and descibed herself as a “spiritual nut.”
Jenna is also a part of a group called the goddess circle, where women come together to discuss their goals and what they are going through before a shaman leads them through a group meditation with sound bowls and crystals. Crediting this experience, she also talked about an epiphany she had around two years ago that made her realize a couple of things about her purpose in life. She said she started thinking, "Alright, let's make your life the best version of your life that it can be. Let's think broader. Let's think bigger." In the years after she found the light, she began to work towards her ambitious. She said: "I expanded, I grew up, I matured. I'm a very ambitious, passionate person. And when an idea comes in, and once you see the light, it's really hard to un-see the light."
It sure seems like she is on the right path to achieving this goal, for the businesswoman, dancer and actress, is releasing a new line of clothing with the dancewear brand Danskin. Daily Mail reported that Jenna spoke to Women's Wear Daily about her new venture, where she said: “I wanted to do a line that was comfortable and chic and also wearable. And something that feels good on the body. You feel comfortable and sexy in it, but also can be for multiple uses.”
