Motherhood definitely suits Jenna Dewan-Tatum — and her marriage to husband-of-nearly-four-years Channing Tatum. The Witches of East End actress opened up to the May issue of Glamour about her relationship with the Magic Mike actor — and revealed the secret to their long-lasting Hollywood marriage.
“Most actors and actresses are consumed by careers and getting ahead,” she told the publication. “Channing and I are ambitious, but our relationship comes first. We take everything day by day, saying, ‘OK, how can we make this work together?'”
In the arresting photo shoot, Dewan-Tatum, 32, shows off her growing bare baby bump in nothing but a red bra top and blue-and-white striped dress shirt, snuggled up against a giant stuffed panda toy.
Earlier this month, the pregnant mother-to-be took to Twitter to speak her piece about the criticism some of her fellow pregnant women were facing in terms of their maternity style and weight gain.
“Let’s all be kind to every woman out there who is expecting,” Dewan-Tatum wrote. “It shouldn’t be about how much weight someone has gained, their fashion etc . . . it’s a beautiful amazing moment in time and not about vanity.”
The Step Up actress’ own figure has been changing less dramatically than she originally anticipated, she told Glamour.
“I thought my body was going to change so quickly with pregnancy that I’d freak out. But it was really gradual,” she told the publication. “There’s a reason women are pregnant for nine months; by the end, you’re ready to have this baby.”
“Channing has been great,” she continued. “He takes the route of no confrontation, just support, saying things like, ‘Do whatever you want! What do you want to eat? I’m going to leave it up to you.'”
Dewan-Tatum and Tatum, also 32, met in 2006 on the set of dance flick Step Up, and got married three years later. The couple announced their happy baby news in December, and have been ecstatically awaiting the new addition to their family ever since.
“Who knows what kind of parents we’ll be? We have two dogs, so we’ve had some practice!” Dewan-Tatum said. “And as soon as this baby comes into the world, Channing and I will figure it out real fast.”
