Singer Jessie J and actor Channing Tatum are still going strong, and the couple just hit a major milestone in their relationship. Jessie J met Tatum’s and Jenna Dewan’s daughter Everly. It was a huge step for the couple — and for the singer in particular — as she continues to grow her relationship with Tatum and his daughter, who he shares with his ex-wife, Dewan.
The “Bang Bang” singer, who has been dating Tatum since October 2018 and is his first public relationship since his divorce from Dewan, opened up about meeting Everly for the first time in a recent interview with The Times. When asked if meeting Everly was “awkward”, Jessie J responded, ”God no! She’s just six and absolutely lovely.” Though the couple has been dating since October 2018, they were able to keep their relationship on the down-low until March, when the 21 Jump Street star was photographed holding hands with Jessie J in London.
“Chan and I got photographed before our relationship was even a thing and that created such pressure. We’ve needed time to get to know each other. We’ve just had our first holiday together, which was wonderful, but that’s all I’m saying…,” Jessie J shared with The Times.
Jessie J continued to express in the interview how happy she is in her relationship with Tatum and how meeting his daughter was just the natural next step as they continue to move forward. The meeting comes after Jessie J revealed her infertility struggles at a London concert in November. Though the news was jarring for the singer, she said she is still determined to become a mother.
“I might go down the route of adoption or even surrogacy,” she said. “I pray that I have children the natural way, but if not, I’ll deal with it.” The singer was diagnosed with adenomyosis, which is a condition where the tissue that lines the uterus grows into the uterus’s muscular wall. “I get severe pain, which I have to manage, and psychologically, well, having children was always a big thing for me. I may be infertile, which, not gonna lie, would be devastating.“
In spite of the diagnosis from four years ago, Jessie J is remaining resolute, saying, “Four, four-and-a-half, five years ago, I was diagnosed with this disease, which is making it harder. I was told I can’t have children, but I don’t believe it. I believe in miracles. I haven’t given up.”
