Proud parents! Jenna Dewan and her boyfriend, Steve Kazee, are officially expecting their first child together and the couple couldn’t be more thrilled about expanding their brood. Hours after their pregnancy news was announced on Tuesday, September 24, Steve gushed over his leading lady in a heartwarming statement and Jenna shared a photo showing off her tiny baby bump.

“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,” Steve, 43, began in his Instagram caption.

“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,” he continued alongside the photo showcasing her newfound curves.

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. 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. 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.

“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. A partner who is continuously growing from those lessons and who supports my growth as a person with love, unwavering support, and understanding,” the Broadway star added, before showing love to her 6-year-old Everly, whom she shares with her ex-husband, Channing Tatum.

Steve mentioned how Jenna comes with an incredible gift of her own, her “beautiful daughter Evie.” The father-to-be said he’s already learned so many lessons from watching the World of Dance star, 38, raise her little girl, noting how he can’t wait to give Everly a sibling and make their family a “little bit bigger!”

Meanwhile, Jenna also took to Instagram with a sweet statement of her own. “Becoming a mother is quite simply the absolute best most incredible thing that has ever happened to me,” she wrote to her nearly 6 million followers. “@stevekazee you are a gift from above and i couldn’t be more excited to be expanding our family together!”

As fans may recall, Jenna and her former flame, Channing, confirmed they were parting ways after eight years of marriage in April 2018. The actress was first romantically linked to her current beau, Steve, in October 2018.

Since then, Channing has also gone public with his new girlfriend, singer Jessie J, and the two are still going strong today!
