6 Things You Didn’t Know About Jenna Dewan


While the name Jenna Dewan might not ring a bell right at first, it’ll probably get better once I mention she was formerly known as Jenna Dewan-Tatum. That’s right, Jenna Dewan is better known as Channing Tatum’s ex-wife.

Here’s a few other things you probably didn’t know about this gorgeous actress.

She Met Channing on the Set of Step Up

With both of them being professional dancers, it kind of makes sense that they’d meet in such a context. Jenna and Channing pretty much hit it off instantly and were married for 9 years.

She Is Currently Pregnant

After her break with Channing Tatum, with whom she also has a child, she started dating Steve Kazee. They have been dating for about a year and a half now and are reportedly very serious about their relationship.

She’s an Animal Rights Activist

And she’s also a vegan. Back in 2017, PETA even called her one of the sexiest vegans on this planet.

She Has Quite a Mixed Heritage

Her father is actually of Polish-Lebanese descent, while her mother has her roots in Germany and England.

She Had a Pretty Good Career as Back-Up Dancer

She was actually a back-up dancer for Janet Jackson for a very long time, and also performed with *NSYNC, Pink!, Ricky Martin and Missy Elliot.

Her Acting Career Has Been On The Rise Since Step Up

While she hasn’t been landing the big roles so far, she has landed some recurring roles in Supergirl and American Horror Story, for example.
