Jenna Dewan and boyfriend Steve Kazee recently announced that they are expecting their first child together. (Dewan already has a daughter, 7-year-old Everly, whom she shares with ex-husband Channing Tatum.) Big news! But even bigger news is now upon us: Dewan just shared the first glimpse of her baby bump!
Both Dewan and Kazee took to Instagram to share new photos of Dewan and her baby bump, along with some really beautiful captions.
“Becoming a mother is quite simply the absolute best most incredible thing that has ever happened to me,” Dewan’s caption begins. “@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!!”
Kazee also shared a recent photo of Dewan holding her bump.
His lengthier caption begins, “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,” he continues.
“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,” Kazee goes on.
Kazee’s caption concludes: “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.”
The couple announced they were expecting their first child together last week, saying “We are beyond overjoyed and couldn’t be happier to be expanding our family!”
Dewan shares her daughter, Everly, with ex-husband Channing Tatum, whom she was married to for almost nine years. The pair split in the spring of 2018. Shortly after, in the summer, Dewan and Kazee began dating.
A year later, and look where we are: A couple in love and a baby on the way! Life is beautiful!
