She plays a witch on TV, but Jenna Dewan-Tatum also leads a pretty charmed life. There’s the show itself, of course — Lifetime’s “Witches of East End.” There’s her precious baby, Everly. There’s her happy marriage to actor Channing Tatum, whose star continues to rise. And there’s her enviable style, which she rocks in her dancer’s body.
“I’m a pretty good manifester,” says the actress, 32. “Once I get in my mind something I want to have happen, I sort of subconsciously create situations which lead to it, to the point that family and friends are like, ‘I can’t believe you were just thinking about it, and three days later it happened!’” This is why her loved ones might want to prepare themselves for a new addition … in the form of a little goat or pig. Jenna’s family will be spending time on a ranch property in the coming months, so, “I’m trying to manifest a little piglet for Everly. Not everyone’s on board with that,” she laughs, “but I think that would be adorable.”

enna Dewan-Tatum recently gave birth to her first child with husband Channing Tatum – daughter Everly, but she’s already back at work, filming a new drama for Lifetime –“The Witches of East End.”
“It is hard,” the new mom said on Friday at the Television Critics Association Summer Tour, of balancing work and her career as an actress on a new show. “It definitely is a challenge. … I’m getting more in the flow of things now, but it’s about switching the brain from, ‘Ok, now I’m mom.’ ‘Now, I’ve gotta go to set and be actress,’ and jumping into [my character], Freya, and then coming back and breastfeeding.
“It’s a juggle, but I sort of feel like every new mom who goes back to work feels this,” she added.
Jenna said she and Channing have been able to make it work looking after Everly, even though they both are working hard on different projects in different locations.
“Channing’s been amazing. He comes and visits me — he’s working at the same time right now, but we prepared for that,” she said. “We have a two week rule and we don’t break it so it’s a little crazy. It’s a little crazy at my house, but it’s good.”
In the series, “The Witches of East End,” coming to Lifetime in October, Jenna plays Freya, the witchy offspring of Julia Ormond’s Joanna Beauchamp (the series is based off of the book from Melissa de la Cruz).
Asked by one reporter if another member of the Tatum family could make a cameo in her new show, Jenna came up with a cute response.
“Which one? My daughter? Everly will not be in the show. She’s too young. I don’t know,” Jenna laughed. “Maybe we’ll sweet talk a certain little husband. Maybe he’ll come on and do – maybe he’ll do a bad guy. That’d be fun.”
Seven weeks! That’s how long it has been since Jenna Dewan Tatum gave birth to her baby girl, Everly, with husband (and total dreamboat) Channing Tatum.
Looking svelte in a stunning red peplum Marchesa knee-length design, Jenna opened up to Glamour about how motherhood has surprised her the most. “Everyone can tell you life is going to change, that you’ll never be more in love, and how you’ll be sleep-deprived, but until you’re there and looking at her in the eyes—having experienced that transformation of birth and caring for something—you have no idea. I was really surprised how much I love something and how obsessive I am about something.”
So much so that even Jenna’s mom had to step in. “My mom said today, ‘Jen, I think you can be a little less possessive over her.’ I was like, ‘No I can’t! I grew this thing inside of me for nine months!’ [But] I’m learning how to let go and let other people care for her.”
Of course, one of those people who gets full-access is husband Channing. “Yes, yes, that I’m good with!” she jokes. “We’ve only done like an hour, because when we’re together, we want to be together. Right now, you’re breast-feeding, so it’s hard to be gone a long time.”
Jenna, who hits the small screen in Witches of East End on Lifetime this fall (premiering October 6), found laughs in a favorite sitcom of ours while nursing Everly. “Oh my gosh, I love New Girl! That was my nursing show. I watched the whole season. I’m obsessed with it, and I think it’s the best comedy on TV in years. I kinda want to be Jess Day, and think she’s the most adorable thing in the whole world.” Hear that Liz Meriwether?
As for her own show, is there any chance we can expect Channing to make a cameo? “Maybe I could sweet talk my husband [into coming on to Witches of East End]. He could play a bad guy!”
I have added scans to the gallery from Us Weekly Magazine. The first set is from a few weeks ago on May 27. Jenna and Channing were the cover story. The second is from June 17 featuring the same article that talked about the birth of Everly. They also got a small spot on the cover. Be sure to check the scans out in the gallery.

On being married to an actor…
“Most actors and actresses are consumed by careers and getting ahead. Channing and I are ambitious, but our relationship comes first. We take everything day by day, saying, ‘OK, how can we make this work together?'”
On her new body…
“I thought my body was going to change so quickly with pregnancy that I’d freak out. But it was really gradual. There’s a reason women are pregnant for nine months; by the end, you’re ready to have this baby. Channing has been great. He takes the route of no confrontation, just support, saying things like, ‘Do whatever you want! What do you want to eat? I’m going to leave it up to you.'”
On parenting styles…
“Who knows what kind of parents we’ll be? We have two dogs, so we’ve had some practice! And as soon as this baby comes into the world, Channing and I will figure it out real fast.”
On that balance thing…
“I think, How in the world am I going to do all this? I have no idea what I’m up against. But I’m as mentally prepared as I can be. It’s an adventure!”
