As surprising as Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum‘s split may have come to some, the actress was actually pretty candid about her marriage in a chat with Health magazine only a couple of months ago.
And that’s on top of new details from People, revealing the two have been separated for months with it being said the Magic Mike star has already moved out of the home he shared with Jenna and their daughter Everly.
A source shared some insight:
“This has been a long time coming. Like any marriage, they’ve had their ups and downs over the years but they really started to grow apart within the last year.”
Meanwhile, a different insider attributed their schedules as the reason for their split, saying it was “due to spending more time apart because of the pressure of work”:
“Channing has been working non-stop, with four movies announced for 2018 alone. It is hard on a marriage to be apart so much, especially when you have a young child. Plus Jenna is in pre-production for the movie, ├óΓé¼╦£Berlin I Love You.’ Both Channing and Jenna are devoted to their daughter and have worked hard to spend as much happy family time together, despite the problems in their relationship that the distance has seemed to magnify.”
On top of that, it seems their December getaway to Mexico couldn’t mend the time spent apart, according to another report.
Going back to Jenna’s chat with the fitness mag for a February article, she said:
“When people say you guys have such a perfect life, I want to scream and tell them no one’s perfect. 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. But I think a couple needs to be conscious and to want to do the work and be willing to look at the parts of you that need work. Both of us have been pretty aware and willing to do that.”
“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.”
At the time, the 37-year-old added they did have to “schedule time together”:
“We will go away for a weekend to get time, but we have no real regimented schedule. I have friends who do this [schedule sex]; it’s on the calendar. We’ve never done that ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ it might actually be a good idea.”
But when asked about whether she’d be growing her family, despite admitting she and Chan have a “real tangible physical connection,” plans for more kids were still up in the air:
“I haven’t yet made my decision, and I’m leaving it to the universe to show me the way. I love the idea of another child, and it might be in the cards, but I’ll know when I know. A lot of women I know plan it, and that’s their decision, they want it within three years, but that was not a possibility for us. It felt too overwhelming. I’m so thrilled with one child. If the desire [for another child] comes around, it will happen, that’s the way I look at it.”
We’re wishing them the best!
