“Happy Mother’s Day, everybody!” the hunky 38-year-old Kingsman star said happily in his Instagram Stories before turning his attention to his loved ones. “Jenna, happy Mother’s Day, baby! Mama, happy Mother’s Day, hope you’re enjoying this beautiful sunset. Love you guys!”

The former couple share 4-year-old daughter Everly.

Tatum and Dewan announced their separation in a joint statement posted to social media on April 2. “We want to share the truth so that if you didn’t read it here then it’s most certainly fiction. We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple,” the statement read. “We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together. Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now.”

The two met on the set of their movie Step Up in 2006, and married in 2009. An insider told Us Weekly that the separation had been coming for a while.

“Things had turned more into a friendship between Jenna and Channing,” the insider said. “There wasn’t any crazy drama or fighting. They were constantly traveling for work and it turned out that they were better apart and not together romantically anymore.

But weeks after their split, another source told Us that the actor “definitely misses Jenna.”
