Congratulations are in order for dancer and actress Jenna Dewan and her actor boyfriend Steve Kazee! This will be Kazee's first child and Dewan's second. She and her ex Channing Tatum share 6-year-old daughter Everly.
“We are beyond overjoyed and couldn’t be happier to be expanding our family!” the couple excited stated when confirming their happy news to PEOPLE. The couple reportedly began dating almost a year ago, a few months after Dewan and Tatum announced their split on social media in April 2018. A source told PEOPLE in October of last year that the couple had been dating for a few months at the time.
E! News reports that Dewan, the former World of Dance host and her Tony Award winning boyfriend recently enjoyed a mini vacation together with Everly at the Montage Laguna Beach. The source pointed out that Kazee and Everly seemed to get along very well. "Jenna and Steve were very relaxed together and looked totally in love," a source told E! News. "They were also very much focused on Everly and made their vacation a family one where she was the priority. Steve was amazing with Everly."
The source noted that "It was a lovely vacation for them where they got to spend time a lot of time together with no distractions," they said. "They looked like a very happy family."
Dewan and Tatum announced their split in a touching Instagram post last April writing, “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. 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.”
The former couple has maintained their privacy and respect ever since. Tatum has since moved on to date singer Jessie J and now Tatum and Kazee are starting their family together. “Jenna’s relationship with Steve is very serious,” a source recently told PEOPLE. “So many things had to work for her to even consider dating again. And everything has clicked with Steve.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
