Jenna Dewan Talks Coparenting With Ex Channing Tatum: 'We Support Each Other'
Jenna Dewan reveals her thoughts on coparenting daughter Everly with ex-husband Channing Tatum in a recent interview where she opens up about her life after the split.
Dewan talks about life after her divorce from Tatum, whom she was married for nine years, in an interview with Harper's Bazaar. The newly single mom says that the Magic Mike star is devoted to doing his part as a father to Everly. Dewan says that she and Tatum are still learning the ropes of coparenting. They are working at it with a positive energy since they want to be the best parents to their daughter.
"We're just getting used to it ... We support each other," the Step Up star tells the publication.
In the same interview, the 37-year-old actress opens up about the changes that happened in her life since her split from Tatum. She says that she looks at the separation positively and describes her relationship now with her ex-husband as her "new normal where there is a lot of love."
Dewan admits that she was contented and happy being Tatum's wife. She was used to being associated with the hunky actor. However, she began to question her purpose after the split. She started asking herself big-picture questions such as "Who are you?" and "What do you want to give to the world?"
"Those feelings started bubbling up for me, naturally ... so I really wanted to expand my life, and myself. And that was my journey, no one else's," Dewan reveals.
Her split from the 21 Jump Street star allowed Dewan to broaden her career and achieve her dreams. Lately, she has been focused on running her new business venture, a production company called Everheart, which she named after her daughter Everly. The company has several projects in development, including a musical romantic comedy titled Roomies.
Dewan is also one of the hosts of World of Dance. Suffice to say, that the split somehow opened up to a lot of opportunities and to a new chapter in her life. Dewan says that she feels the excitement, the freedom, and the sense of joy with this new chapter.
"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," Dewan says about being on her own.
