Many women look at godlike Channing Tatum and try to guess, what he found in that woman, who had become the main love of his life and a mother of his daughter. Of course slim and elegant Jenna Dewan is a pretty and well-groomed actress, but Channing is busy in movie industry too, where he is surrounded by rarely beautiful talented women all the time. It is not an easy thing to stay happily married in Hollywood. But Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum seems to be in love after 8 years of marriage.
When two stars met, they both were infamous and poor. He tried his hand as a builder and occasional model, and even worked as a stripper in some night club. She was a devoured dancer and could spent the whole day, making various dancing movements and developing her technique. When Jenna reached the 18th age mark, she left her parents’ home in Dallas and moved to LA. The girl dreamed to become an actress. She visited various auditions, but was rejected all the time. The young ambitious girl was good-looking, but there are thousands good-looking girls in Hollywood. She didn’t have “that something”, which makes a mega star from an ordinary attractive person.
Jenna danced to make the ends meet. She performed in night clubs and then was cast to music videos of several quite popular bands like N Sync (where she met Justin Timberlake and later danced at his concerts), with Toni Braxton, Celine Dion and some other singers.
Occasionally she heard about the new movie, where dancers’ life was depicted. It was named “Step Up”. Jenna visited the audition. Thus Dewan made, probably, the most important step in her life.
By the way, open-minded Jenna Dewan has never shared her thoughts about meeting Channing Tatum. Probably, she prefers to keep that private emotion in secret. Her husband, on the contrary, told to “Elle”, that he was not ready to start serious relationship at that period of life and tried to stay away from Jenna. But then he saw her in sombrero and lost control.
They started dating and then moved in a romantic trip to Hawaii. There Channing felt, this woman was special and she was supposed to play a key role in his fate.
Marriage: Dancing Closer

Tatum’s fans think that his wife Jenna is not so charismatic and talented, that’s why she stays in her husband’s shadow. Jenna’s fans suppose that the actress can’t develop her own career, because she constantly cares about her husband. In any case, Channing used to tell in his interviews numerous times, that his star status is based on his wife’s support. She has always been ready to improve his mood after the unsuccessful audition and even paid for their apartment, when he stayed without a dollar in his pocket.
Jenna has become an important part of Tatum’s life and one day he felt, he was ready to move forward with her. He bought an engagement ring and proposed her.
