Jenna Dewan Shares How Difficult Being a Working Mom Was When Daughter Everly Was 6 Weeks Old

In a recent interview on Dear Media’s Dear Gabby podcast, Jenna Dewan shares that the early stages of motherhood after her first child, daughter Everly, was born were “really difficult.” The Step Up star, who shares her daughter, now 8, with ex-husband Channing Tatum, gets very candid in revealing that she was working soon after their daughter’s birth and Tatum was predominantly absent due to work.
