Jenna Dewan has a lot of love to share – for both her partner and her kids.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actress and dancer, 39, spoke about the “unspoken chemistry” she has with Steve Kazee.
“It’s the sparks that fly and it just works really well … I am in a really great place and totally in love,” she told the outlet. “It’s nice.”
Dewan was previously married to actor Channing Tatum. They split in April of last year after nine years of marriage. They share 6-year-old daughter Everly. Now, Dewan is expecting baby No. 2 with Kazee, and her excitement is infectious.
We’ve rounded up her best quotes about the baby on-the-way (which also includes a shout-out to Kazee):
The pregnancy announcement
“We are beyond overjoyed and couldn’t be happier to be expanding our family!” the couple said in a joint statement to USA TODAY in September.
“Becoming a mother is quite simply the absolute best most incredible thing that has ever happened to me,” she captioned an Instagram post of herself and Everly in late September, calling Kazee a “gift from above,” adding that she “couldn’t be more excited to be expanding our family together…! Thank you guys for all the love!!”
“She’s really excited. She’s really protective. It’s been cute,” Dewan told ET in December. “She’s worried about what I’m eating, making sure it’s healthy. When I say, ‘Mommy needs to sit down and take a break,’ she totally gets it. She hugs and cuddles the belly.”
She continued, “I mean, it’s really been adorable. You never know how it’s gonna go, and so far she’s been so excited. And she tells the entire world. Everyone. Everyone, every way. Even people that check us out at stores. She’s like, ‘Does she know my mom’s pregnant?’ They’re like, ‘We can see,’ ” the actress joked.
Keeping it real
“In the beginning, I was a little sick – a lot sick, a lot sick – but now I’m good,” she told Extra about her pregnancy in December, adding “I’m really happy.”
‘Happy mom happy baby’
Dewan hasn’t been shy when it comes to talking about baby No. 2 on her social media.
“Happy mom happy baby happy view happy job,” she captioned a photo of herself on Instagram in November with a beautiful water and sky-filled background.
Earlier in November, she posted a photo with fellow dancer Travis Wall.
“Reunited and it feels so goooood! Back with my most favorite @traviswall! Moving that baby around today,” she captioned the post with winking, laughing and dancing emojis.
