Jenna Dewan is revealing all in a book and that includes talking about her split from actor Channing Tatum and how she coped with the divorce.

In the book titled Gracefully You: Finding Beauty and Balance in the Everyday, the actress got candid about coming to terms with her separation and how she has been dealing with the whole experience.

She said that getting divorced was never in the plans for her but she learned to go through it one step at a time. She admitted:

I had many moments of deep, painful, big cries.

Jenna's surprise

Jenna moved on from Channing and started relationship with the actor Steve Kazee. But before all this, she faced a tough moment when she found out that her estranged husband had moved on with Australian singer Jessie J only months after they were separated.

In her book, the brunette beauty said that she was "alone" when she learned the news shortly after her separation from her husband of ten years.

There I was, on a plane, alone, finding out about his new relationship. I felt blindsided.

She went on to add that finding out about Channing's new love at the same time as the rest of the world was "difficult." Her immediate reaction at the time was to type out some Tweets to express her feelings.

However, rather than send them, she decided to go another route.

Instead of reacting the way I wanted…I asked myself this: How do I choose grace in this moment?

Jenna and Channing announced their separation in April 2018 and she filed for divorce a few months later.

Jenna and Channing share daughter Everly and at the time of announcing their separation, they stated that they will focus on raising their child together.

The actress has certainly gone through a lot and dealing with a divorce is tough for anyone. It's brave of her to open up about it and others can learn a lot from what she has to share.
