Jenna Dewan Says Daughter Everly Isn’t a Fan of “Step Up”: “She Was Completely Uninterested”
Everly Tatum can basically watch her parents, Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum, fall in love in real time in the 2006 movie “Step Up.” But for now, the 10-year-old isn’t impressed with the film that brought her parents together. In a recent interview with Us Weekly, Dewan shared her daughter’s response to watching “Step Up” for the first time, and to say she wasn’t a fan would be an understatement.
“She was like, ‘Can we watch something good?'” Dewan told the outlet. “She was completely uninterested.” In Everly’s defense, she was still quite young when her mom first showed her the film. Dewan continued, “She likes to be like, ‘OK, yeah.’ It’s not cool to her yet. Maybe one day.”
Dewan and Channing met and fell in love on the set of “Step Up.” They went on to exchange “I dos” in 2009 and welcomed Everly in 2013. However, they officially separated in 2018 and were divorced a year later.
As for Everly, even though she has zero interest in “Step Up,” she does love to dance, just like her famous parents. In a recent appearance on Today With Hoda and Jenna, Channing told Hoda Kotb that his daughter is very into Celtic Irish dancing right now. “She’s a dancer, she loves Celtic Irish dancing,” he shared.
Channing continued, “She just loves anything magical – fairies, elves – and when you look on YouTube, all the clip art for Celtic Irish music is fairies, so I think that’s how we started it. And then she became obsessed with Celtic music. Now we’re doing Celtic Irish dancing, so that’s all we’ve listened to for the last two years.”
