The Step Up actress is baring all, posing naked on the cover of U.S. Women's Health discussing her relationship with her ex husband and what it’s like to co-parent as they raise their 5-year-old daughter Everly. “It’s been a journey, and it’s been a transformation of myself—my needs and wants as a woman,” she said.
“I think everyone wants to hold on to what’s in front of them, but when you open your mind, saying, ‘I want what’s best for myself and my daughter,’ you have to be okay with however that looks,” she added.
Obviously, choosing to publicly reveal your love went kaput isn't easy. “It’s always challenging to go through a big change and have the whole world have an opinion about it,” she said. “It’s okay for a relationship to change into a new form that is actually better for both people involved, and I think that’s maybe what shocked everyone so much—that it can be a positive thing.”
Jenna and Channing announced their separation on April 2nd with a joint announcement posted on social media.
