Channing Tatum's ex-wife Jenna Dewan expecting child with new boyfriend Steve Kazee

Baby joy! Actress and dancer Jenna Dewan, 38, and her actor boyfriend Steve Kazee, 43, are expecting their first child together, People reports.

While this will be Steve’s first child, Step Up star Jenna is already mum to six-year-old daughter Everly, who she shares with ex-husband Channing Tatum.

The happy couple told People, "We are beyond overjoyed and couldn't be happier to be expanding our family!"

While the happy couple has yet to share Jenna’s official delivery date just yet, she’s believed to be due early next year.

Who is Steve Kazee?

Jenna began seeing Steve, a 2012 Tony award winner for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical for Once, last spring.

E! News reports that the two were first spotted getting cozy at a Halloween party. According to the outlet, "They have been dating for a few months. She was introduced to him by mutual friends and they hit it off right away. Jenna really likes him and is very happy.”

The couple made it Instagram official in June, with Jenna sharing a cozy snap with the caption, “Speaking of peace.”

In February, Steve shared a Valentine’s message along with a photo of Jenna looking at the camera from a bed.

“Somehow, inexplicably, I’ve been granted the honor to have this be the person that I get to be side by side with throughout this wild journey we call life,” he wrote in the caption.

“Jenna I don’t know what I did to deserve your love but I will always be so thankful that our lives found their way to each other. Here’s looking at you, kid,” he added.

The Kentucky-born actor, while not exactly a household name, is probably familiar to most TV fans. Steve appeared in two episodes of NBC's Blindspotting as Clem Hahn and also during season four of Nashville as Riff Bell.

He also had a recurring role on Shameless as Gus Pfender, and appeared on NCIS, Legends and Elementary.

In his personal life Steve describes himself as a dog person, sharing lots of photos of his pets on social media, as well as a big WWE fan. He’s apparently made a fan out of Jenna as well, who shared photos from her first WWE Raw a few months ago.

Channing and Jessie J’s romance

The World of Dance host’s ex Channing is still going strong with singer Jessie J and has not offered any comment on Jenna and Steve’s happy news on social media.

The star is currently on a break, announcing in August he’d be taking a step back from all social platforms in a post on Instagram.

But Jessie J is singing his praises in public. In video taken at her show at the Troubadour in LA on Sunday, the “Domino” hitmaker performed a new song for a crowd, and the romantic lyrics are all about her Magic Mike boyfriend.
