Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum have announced on Monday that they are separating after nearly nine years of marriage.
To us, it came as a shock, but others saw it coming.
The couple posted a joint statement to their respective Instagram pages.
“We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple,” the pair said. “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.”
Their announcement also said that there are “no secrets nor salacious events” that led to the split.
The couple met on-set while filming Step Up back in 2006, they started dating right after, and eventually tied the knot in 2009. Their only daughter Everly will turn five in May.
Dewan Tatum is currently the host of NBC’s “World of Dance,” and Tatum is set to voice the role of Migo in the upcoming animated film, “Smallfoot.”
In Jenna’s interview with Health, she talked about her relationship with Channing being far from perfect.
“When people say you guys have such a perfect life, I want to scream and tell them no one’s perfect,” she said.
“I think there are such things as great fits. It is a great fit as long as you are growing together, and I think up until this point we’ve really grown together. Even if one starts to grow, the other catches up and vice versa.”
“We’ve always had the same values. But we’re not perfect! Are you kidding? We fight like other couples, we disagree about things, we have days where we don’t really like each other.”
Jenna also attended the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party solo and when she was asked where Channing was, she said that he was on daddy duty.
