Jenna Dewan, the ex-wife of Channing Tatum, had a tip for her social media followers: don’t believe what you see on Instagram. The 37-year-old posted two photos of herself on the 9th of July, and in the very first one, the model lays on a float by the swimming pool.
And in the next photo, it’s her along with her five-year-old daughter, Everly. With her daughter hanging off of her, Dewan slides off the lounger into the pool.
She wrote in her post, “Instagram versus reality.” Jenna’s followers and fans loved the joke, with one person writing, “Wow, that’s what it’s like to be a mother isn’t it?”
Another person, while being a bit adulating, wrote, “Omg that was great, I love this sort of thing. By the way, your sense of humor is so amazing. I love your work, keep it up!”
There’s no wonder that Jenna needs some time to relax by the pool, considering she and her estranged husband, Channing, have had a rough past year.
As it was previously reported, Channing and Dewan split up in April. However, they manage to co-parent amicably but haven’t spoken about each other much in the press ever since.
According to the Independent, raising children is usually one of the primary reasons why couples split up, other than financial problems. Perhaps, Channing didn’t agree with that Jenna was teaching their daughter?
During a chat with reporters from Us Weekly back in May, Dewan opened up about the way they’ve trained their daughter to care about the environment.
She said her child tells her, “Mommy, you need to recycle that.” She also tells her to “respect nature.” According to the model, her daughter goes to many different camps where she learns about the importance of reducing one’s ecological footprint.
As for how she manages to relax after raising her child with her estranged husband, Channing, she said she “meditates. I know that sounds so boring, but that’s literally what I do!”
