Yesterday, we brought you the wonderful news that Jenna Dewan and Steve Kazee – who are currently expecting their first child together – had gotten engaged.
However, we were unaware of how Jenna’s ex-husband Channing Tatum took the news…
We assumed there would be no hard feelings, considering he is a) enjoying an on/off (but right now, very much on) relationship with British singer Jessie J. And b) the fact that he had nothing but kind words to say when Jenna told him that she was pregnant with her second child, way before making the announcement on social media.
(She and Channing are also proud parents to six-year-old daughter Everly, so will always be in each other’s lives.)
As expected Channing Tatum has handled the situation with grace and dignity. Although he has yet to address the engagement publically, insiders claim that he is “very happy” for his ex-wife…
“Channing is very happy for Jenna and Steve’s engagement. Channing has expressed that he is happy Jenna is in a good place and has moved on,” an insider told E! News.
“Jenna has a special place in Channing’s heart since she is the mother of their child, but they have both moved on and are happy in their new relationships.
“Channing’s main priority and concern is his daughter, and him and Jenna are both happy to have worked out a co-parenting agreement.”
We assume that Channing will extend his congratulations to the newly engaged couple in person, as they reportedly still see each other quite often for the sake of their daughter…
“They will be doing all kinds of family things together,” a separate source previously said about Channing and Jenna’s co-parenting routine.
“They want to keep her routine the same… Nothing is going to change in her life and she has two parents who will be very involved in everything she does.”
We hope the rest of Hollywood can learn something from Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan.
