Jenna Dewan's Third Pregnancy Was Different Than Her First Two

Earlier this year, Dewan shared that her third pregnancy was a little different than her first two with PEOPLE.

"Third pregnancy while chasing two other kids around definitely makes you a little more tired," she said. "I find crawling into bed at 9 p.m. is definitely different this pregnancy. But overall, everything's been going well. And it's been wonderful. But I'm without a doubt a little bit more tired."

Dewan also talked about how Kazee has been with the pregnancy.

"He is really good with cravings and also amazing with helping out with Eve and Callum with their schedules," she said. "And he's constantly reminding me to rest, which is really nice. He's amazing in that way."

Dewan recently opened up about co-parenting with her ex-husband Channing Tatum, who she shares daughter Everly with, as well as what it's like blending families.

"Like everything else in life, you learn as you go. You shift and evolve and you adapt to how life is presenting itself to you," Dewan told PEOPLE. "That includes getting the new normal of a blended family. Kids come first. How you feel about your kids. How you treat your kids. Kids always come first above everything else."

Dewan always knew she wanted a big family, so reentering motherhood in her 40s was something she welcomed.

"It feels like I always knew that this would probably be the path for me, even as a kid," she said. "I think I knew life got better as I got older if that makes sense. I'd never understood that like, 'Oh no, it's all over once we get older.' Life's only shown me that the more time I have in this life, the more I've learned, the better experiences I've had. Everything just kind of feels better."
