Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum are officially free to explore new relationships …. even though they’ve already clearly moved on with one in a serious romance and the other expecting a baby! According to court records obtained by The Blast, the former couple had their judgment officially entered on Wednesday into the ongoing divorce case that declared them single. As we first reported, Tatum recently filed documents to bifurcate the status of their divorce, which essentially declares them legally single and free to possibly remarry.
The move by Tatum came after Dewan announced she was expecting a baby with new boyfriend, Steve Kazee. There have been rumors that Dewan is planning on making it official and getting married to her new baby daddy, which would now be possible with the divorce judgement making them single.
Tatum has also been involved in a public romance with pop star Jessie J, and while the two have not dropped any hints at a wedding or baby in the near future, they’v been spending lots of time together and are clearly very serious.
Even though they are no longer legally married, Dewan and Tatum are far from ending their divorce and will now need to work out all the particulars, including custody and financial settlements. The two share daughter Everly and have both made their intentions clear that they want to share joint physical and legal custody of the 6-year-old girl.
Meanwhile, there doesn’t seem to be a ton of drama in the proceedings between the two stars, and they appear to be completely wrapped up in their new romances. During Broadway star Steve Kazee’s birthday recently, Dewan took to Instagram to give her new man a tribute and she is head ove heels in love.
“The world became a better place the day you were born…Your strength, gentleness, humor and caring beautiful soul touches everyone who knows you. I am the luckiest girl in the world to love you and be loved by you.”
Steve Kazee also wrote about how excited he is to become a dad and to have Dewan in his life.
“I can’t even begin to describe the feelings that I have had since we first learned that Jenna was pregnant! I have waited my entire life for this moment and couldn’t have found a better person to build a family with. The past year and a half has brought so many things into my life that have filled me with the deepest of gratitude. A partner who radiates love, warmth, and kindness. A partner who has faced some of the hardest moments life can deal you with grace, humility, and a desire to learn from the ups and downs. A partner who is continuously growing from those lessons and who supports my growth as a person with love, unwavering support, and understanding. Jenna also brought with her one of the greatest gifts one could ever imagine…her beautiful daughter. Evie burst into my life like a supernova and has continued to burn so brightly in it. I have learned so much about parenting already from watching how amazing Jenna is with her and Evie has taught me so much about what it means to love and communicate with a child and I can’t wait to give her a sibling and make our little family a little bit bigger.”
