Remember when our hearts turned cold and we realised love was dead? It happened on 3rd April when Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum announced they were ending their marriage after nine years.
They called it quits, proclaiming they are still "best friends" and will always be "loving, dedicated parents to Everly", their five-year-old daughter. Thankfully, they both appear to be happy since then - Channing is dating Jessie J and Jenna has moved on with the actor Steve Kazee.
Here's everything we know about their relationship so far - starting from the latest update:
27 April, 2020: Both Jenna and Steve have been posting some outrageously cute pictures of baby son Callum on social media. On Sunday, the Step Up star enjoyed a cosy cuddle session with her little boy as they spent the morning in bed. "I'll never stop loving these morning cuddles," she captioned an adorable shot shared to Instagram Stories.
Meanwhile, Steve posted a stylish snap of him wearing a 'The Bad Dads Club' tee while holding his son in one arm. "Daddyyyyyyy 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥," Jenna wrote in the comments section and, honestly, #goals.
Here's the rest of Jenna and Steve's relationship timeline:
3rd April 2018: Jenna and Channing announce their separation, this is what they post on social media:
28th May 2018: Jenna gives an interview to Harper'sBazaar.com where she talks about being single and adapting to the changes in her life:
"The moves I'm making are completely not related to my marriage or separation, interestingly enough. I was always very happy being a wife," Dewan says, but bigger questions were looming, like "'Who are you? What do you want to give to the world? What excites you?' Those feelings started bubbling up for me, naturally… so I really wanted to expand my life, and myself. And that was my journey, no one else's.
"I feel a sense of joy and freedom and excitement, truly, about a new chapter in my life. And I have no attachments to how that's going to look, or what that's going to be. I feel really open, and I feel hopeful."
"Jenna has been on a few dates but doesn't talk about a boyfriend," the source tells People magazine. While another source says Channing has also been on a few dates and is having fun but it's nothing "serious".
18th October 2018: A week after the first reports about a relationship between Channing and Jessie J emerge, Us Weekly claims that Jenna is totally fine with her ex moving on because she too is "seeing someone new".
But who is this person? The world wonders...
27th October 2018: Jenna officially files for divorce from Channing citing Irreconcilable Differences and asking for joint legal and physical custody of their daughter. The whole thing seems pretty amicable and, according to documents obtained by the media, Jenna also asks to be now known as Jenna Dewan rather than Jenna Dewan Tatum.
30th October 2018: A day before Channing and Jenna are pictured trick or treating with their daughter and getting along just fine, the identity of Jenna's new boyfriend is rumoured to be Steve Kazee - a broadway actor who won a prestigious Tony award in 2012 for his leading actor role in the musical Once.
People quotes a source who says the pair have been "dating for a couple of months and she's really happy" which is cute!
The couple also appear in an Instagram photo on Jenna's friend's account from a group theme park outing.
2nd November 2018: Jenna and Steve are pictured together walking around Palm Springs hand-in-hand in shots published on People.
A source tells the magazine, "Jenna is having a lot of fun with Steve. They've been dating for months out of the spotlight and it's becoming more serious. They have a lot in common."
3rd November 2018: The next day, the couple are pictured kissing in Palm Springs!
12th November 2018: Jenna talks about Steve for the first time, kind of, to US Weekly who ask her how things are going.
"I don't talk about my persona life, but thank you! I am very happy," she tells the publication.
3rd December 2018: The couple make things slightly more public when Steve comments on a photo of Jenna on her Instagram.
Promoting her Danskin collection, Jenna captioned the photo: "Have you found your favourite yet?" to which Steve replied: "Yes. I have." 😍
It also happens to be Jenna's birthday (HB Jen) so Steve uploads an adorable classic early-stages-of-a-relationship photobooth print out of the couple.
"Sometimes it feels like my birthday over and over again because I keep getting the gift of you every day," he captions the picture.
5th June 2019: Jenna shares a sweet photo of the couple together. They look so happy.
21st August 2019: How cute is this 'prom' photo?!?!

24th September 2019: Jenna and Steve announce their expecting their first child together!
The couple made a statement to People magazine that said: “We are beyond overjoyed and couldn’t be happier to be expanding our family!”
This will be the first child for Steve and the second for Jenna, who has 6-year-old daughter Everly with ex Channing.
25th September 2019: Both Jenna and Steve share cute photos of Jenna's baby bump.
Steve's caption reads:
"Well...the news is out. 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."
"Becoming a mother is quite simply the absolute best most incredible thing that has ever happened to me 💕 @stevekazee you are a gift from above and i couldn’t be more excited to be expanding our family together...! Thank you guys for all the love!!"
10th October 2019: Steve implied that he fell in love with Jenna at first sight, which is obviously incredibly sweet.
It came about when Jenna tweeted: "Can people fall in love at first sight? What about at first dance? Stay tuned tomorrow for more!"
To which Steve replied, "I believe they can."
Jenna then simply put "melt" with a big red heart emoji.
Can people fall in love at first sight? What about at first dance? Stay tuned tomorrow for more! 🙃— Jenna Dewan (@jennadewan) October 8, 2019
We're guessing this tweet exchange started because Jenna is the new host of Flirty Dancing in the States, which sees couples meet for the first time when they perform a choreographed dance together.
10 November 2019 - Jenna's baby bump makes its red carpet debut at the People Choice Awards. While Steve Kazee was nowhere to be seen, the actress walked the red carpet alongside the likes of the Kardashians and Gwen Stefani and the PCAs, cradling her baby bump in a gorgeous red dress.
24 November 2019 - After making her pregnancy bump red carpet debut at the People's Choice Awards earlier this month (see below!), Jenna Dewan attended the American Music Awards. And as well as getting caught up in a bit of shade controversy with Camila Cabello, she was glowing, wearing a high neck red maxi dress which showed off her growing second child. Cute!
28 November 2019: Jenna Dewan and Steve Kazee spent Thanksgiving with her daughter from her marriage to Channing Tatum, Everly.
"Thankful. Hope everyone had a wonderful day with their friends and loved ones!
Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃🍁🍽 ❤️," Steve wrote with a picture cradling Jenna's baby bump.
Jenna then shared a number of photos with Everly present, adding, "The journey to get a good group picture though 😂 Grateful for so much today❤️Happy thanksgiving everyone!!!"
3 December 2019: Steve Kazee shares gushing message of love for Jenna Dewan to celebrate her 39th birthday, alongside a photo of her gorgeous baby bump.
"This woman," he wrote to his 114k Instagram followers. "What an indelible mark she has placed on my heart. The day of her birth has been a full one for us so far...dropping off the kiddo at school, baby doc appointment, nursery planning, moving into our new home, picking the kiddo up from school and so many other little life moments.
Through it all I love catching eyes with her and knowing that she is the person I will be spending the rest of my life with. I couldn’t be more grateful that she was put on this earth and that we found each other through all the noise. I love you Jenna and I hope you have the happiest of birthdays!"
"Oh my heart," Jenna replied, with lots of red heart emojis.
These two are sickly sweet.
30th December 2019: Steve posted yet another gushing tribute to his pregnant partner. Hilariously, he admitted his Instagram account has basically turned into a Jenna Dewan "fan account now".
Alongside the tribute, Steve uploaded four pictures of the actress, including one of her showing off her growing baby bump while lying on a doctor's table and another showing her at the premiere of new show, Flirty Dancing, which she hosts.
"Disclaimer: I’m aware this is basically an @jennadewan fan account now. There is a reason for that. That reason is that I constantly watch with absolute awe as she has carves her path through this world and all the while she does it with a level of grace that we should all aspire to. From starring as a mother to her beautiful daughter and our soon to be child, to her lead role as a partner in my life, a published author of #gracefullyyou, to her starring turn on @soundtracknetflix, and to the premiere of @flirtydancefox tonight she never fails to inspire and amaze me. So yes...I’m proud. Incredibly. I want everyone to know about her because she is a gift to this world in so many ways. So thank you for visiting this fan account. Happy premiere day my love! ❤️"
You guys are too damn cute!
