Actor-dancer Jenna Dewan is expecting first child with actor boyfriend Steve Kazee, and the couple is "beyond overjoyed".

Confirming the news to "People", the couple said in a statement, "We are beyond overjoyed and could not be happier to be expanding our family".

Dewan and Kazee have been dating since last year. This will be Kazee's first child and Dewan's second, who shares a six-year-old daughter, Everly, with ex-husband Channing Tatum.
Dewan and Tatum fell in love on the set of the film 2006 "Step Up" and were married for nearly nine years before splitting last year.

"The Resident" actress decided to keep Tatum in the loop before she announced the pregnancy news publicly, and Channing is being supportive of his ex. "Jenna told Channing that she was pregnant and wanted to make sure he knew before she announced it. He is happy for her and was very supportive," a source said speaking to E! News.

The actress also took to Twitter to share the news along with a picture of her with daughter Everly and wrote she "couldn't be more excited to be expanding family" with Kazee.

Becoming a mother is quite simply the absolute best most incredible thing that has ever happened to me 💕 @SteveKazee you are a gift from above and i couldn’t be more excited to be expanding our family together...! Thank you guys for all the love!!

According to reports, Dewan's daughter Everly also shares a special bond with Kazee. The three were spotted together on a beach in Los Angeles earlier this month. "Kazee and Dewan made their vacation a family one where Everly was the priority. Steve was amazing with Everly. They looked like a very happy family," the source claimed.

On the professional front, the 38-year-old actress who recently starred in Fox's medical drama, "The Resident", will next be seen in the Netflix musical series, "Soundtrack".
