Jenna Dewan shares daughter Everly with ex Channing Tatum and son Callum with fiancé Steve Kazee and is currently expecting her third baby
Jenna Dewan is a soon-to-be mom of three!
The Step Up actress and her fiancé Steve Kazee announced they are expecting their second child together in January 2024. Dewan is already a mother to Everly, 10, with her ex-husband Channing Tatum, and shares son Callum, 3, with Kazee.
“We’re just getting used to it,” Dewan told Harper’s Bazaar a month after announcing they were separated. “We’re in a very positive energy together, trying to be the best parents to Everly. We support each other.”
Now, Dewan is in love with her blended family and her kids couldn’t be closer. In March 2020, weeks after Callum was born, Dewan told PEOPLE that Everly was excited to meet her little brother, and was eager to “nuzzle” and “cuddle” with him.
“She always wants to hold Callum,” she said. “I don’t push him on her, but she’s been so excited and very loving towards him and open and cuddly. She keeps asking me when she can share a room with him.”
From Irish dancing to their sibling love, here’s everything to know about Jenna Dewan’s two kids, Everly and Callum, and her third baby on the way.
Everly Tatum, 10
Dewan and Tatum welcomed their daughter, Everly “Evie” Elizabeth Maiselle Tatum, on May 31, 2013, in London. She has since grown up to be a passionate dancer and a loving big sister to her little brother.
While her mom grew up dancing, Everly originally had no interest in pursuing the sport after she took a class and “didn’t want to go back” — until she was introduced to Irish dancing.
"Everly has been obsessed with Irish legends, folklore, music, for her entire life. Fairies, all of it," Dewan told PEOPLE in May 2022. "I showed her Riverdance and she was just like, 'I want to do this, Mom, find me a place.' "
"So I found this woman [at] Celtic Irish Dance Academy in Burbank. We were there last week and she loves it but it's hard," she added. "I'm so proud of her for keeping with it. She's picking it up real quick."
In addition to dancing, Everly is also a talented makeup artist and fashionista — and has even been styling her mom.
In August 2023, Dewan shared with PEOPLE that Everly was picking up cosmetics skills after having been around makeup artists her whole life.
"She's been in a makeup trailer with me at work since she was ... I have pictures of her 6 weeks old with me because I was filming Witches of East End and she was in the trailer with me," she said. "So she's just been around it. There's a part of her that's kind of interested, but she's really good. She has a little play set of makeup that I've been giving her and she's got a great look."
Like her parents, Everly is a major Swiftie and even got to attend Taylor Swift's Eras tour concert twice, once with each of her parents. She put her fashion skills to the test when she styled Dewan for the special night.
"She did pick out my outfit for Eras," she told PEOPLE. "She gave me a lot of notes. There were a lot of things I was like, 'No,' but ... she styled me. It was styled by Evie that night."
Above all her hobbies and passions, however, Everly is a doting big sister. Though Dewan was initially concerned about her two older children’s almost 7-year age gap, she said as soon as Callum was born, his older sister was in love with him.
After Callum’s birth, the Witches of East End actress said her daughter was instantly her “little helper,” and even helped change diapers.
“She knows to get the wipes [for diaper changes]. I encourage her to help,” Dewan said. “I let her pick out what he’s going to wear during the day and his outfits for bedtime. She also has a lullaby that she likes to sing to him.”
Callum Kazee, 3
Dewan’s son and first child with Kazee, Callum Michael Rebel Kazee, was born on March 6, 2020, in Los Angeles.
“And just like that, our hearts exploded into all of eternity and beyond ❤️🌈❤️ Welcome to the world you little angel! ❤️,” the dancer wrote on Instagram below a black-and-white shot of her holding her newborn son.
Callum was born via cesarean section and entered the world while one of his mother’s favorite songs — “The Devi Prayer,” a 20-minute Sanskrit prayer — played in the background.
“It’s a very peaceful song,” Dewan told PEOPLE shortly after his birth. “It always puts me at ease. I put that on our playlist and I said to Steve, ‘If I ever start to look like I’m getting anxious or if I was having a rough time, just please play that.’ ”
She added that welcoming her second child was a much calmer experience as she knew what to expect.
“I’d heard this from a lot of people, that there’s something that happens with the second baby, that there’s a little bit more calm and peace in knowing what’s happening,” she said. “Knowing what’s coming down the line, you are able to be a little more present and enjoy all of it and it’s so true.”
When he was a baby, Callum seemed to inherit his Tony Award-winning father’s love for music and his mother’s passion for dance. Kazee posted a video on his Instagram Story of a 5-month-old Callum hitting some buttons on a baby guitar, a smile spreading on his face as it played a sweet tune.
"Baby's first riff," Kazee wrote on top of the video. "Takes after his daddy!"
Five months later, Dewan shared how Callum was getting into her area of expertise and dancing along with her.
"I'm always dancing, even in the kitchen. Callum laughs and smiles when I dance, especially when I give him a good hair whip. It's as if it's the funniest thing that ever happened," she told Women’s Health. "And Evie's always like, 'Dance party time!' "
Now a toddler, Callum has been experiencing many exciting firsts — including his first trip to Disneyland in December 2023. Dewan posted a carousel of photos of Callum experiencing the magical place, including meeting his “idols” Moana and Mickey Mouse.
Jenna Dewan and Steve Kazee's Baby on the Way
In January 2024, Dewan and Kazee announced they are expecting their second child together by sharing a video on her Instagram of Kazee serenading her on the guitar while she took a relaxing bath — and showed off her baby bump.
"Think if I make @stevekazee serenade me every night the baby will get his voice??" Dewan wrote in her caption.
Dewan opened up in an interview with Romper published the same day that she didn’t expect her pregnancy at 43 years old to be the same as when she had Everly at 32.
"I'm not sure the body necessarily gets right back into action the way it did years ago," she said. "We'll see. I'll report back, but I do think there's a bit of ignorance, this dancer in me that just says, 'OK, well, you just get it done.' I've recovered great every time, but I'm open to whatever happens."
She added that she planned on her third child being her last, sharing that she was trying to “enjoy it all” and “not race to the end.”
