Jenna Dewan wants to “expand her life” since splitting from Channing Tatum.

The 37-year-old actress split from Channing earlier this year after almost a decade of marriage, and has insisted that their decision to file for divorce came as she started asking herself questions about her life, and realised she wanted to go on her own “journey”.

Jenna – who has five-year-old daughter Everly with Channing – said: “The moves I’m making are completely not related to my marriage or separation, interestingly enough. I was always very happy being a wife.

“[I started asking questions like] ’Who are you? What do you want to give to the world? What excites you?’ Those feelings started bubbling up for me, naturally … so I really wanted to expand my life, and myself. And that was my journey, no one else’s.”

Now, almost two months since her April 2 split from 38-year-old Channing, the ‘World of Dance’ co-host feels more “free” than ever before.

She added: “I feel a sense of joy and freedom and excitement, truly, about a new chapter in my life. And I have no attachments to how that’s going to look, or what that’s going to be. I feel really open, and I feel hopeful.”

Despite their break-up, Jenna and Channing are still close, and still work together on co-parenting their daughter.

Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar, she said: “We’re just getting used to it. We’re in a very positive energy together, trying to be the best parents to Everly. We support each other.”

Her comments come after she recently vowed to “make the best” of her year following her ongoing divorce.

She said: “This year has just been a really incredible year in a lot of ways. A lot of change, but you go with it and you make the best with what you can. I’m really great and doing wonderful and I thank everyone for their love always.”
