Getting married before a baby arrives is traditional but not that common among Hollywood celebrity couples who often times raise families and skip the formalities of nuptials altogether.
A few like Ne-Yo and his wife Crystal Smith, Cassie, Cardi B, Tatyana Ali and Offset and Teresa Palmer and her husband, opted to have “shotgun weddings” – an old euphemism for wedding while the bride is pregnant to guarantee the baby will be born within wedlock.
Now that news is out that dancer, TV host and actress Jenna Dewan just got engaged to her boyfriend and father of her unborn second child, Steve Kazee, we wonder if they will do the same, or buck the old fashioned formalities!
“A lifetime to love and grow with you…you have my heart
️” Dewan captioned a photo of herself and Kazee after the engagement.
“When you wake in the morning I will kiss your face with a smile no one has ever seen,” he wrote,channeling the words of Water Liars’ song “Let It Breathe”. “When you wake in the morning I will kiss your eyes and say it’s you I have loved all these years.”
I love actress, dancer and producer Jenna Dewan
who is currently expecting her first child with boyfriend of a year Steve Kazee
, but is still proving pregnant women do not have to slow down when they are expecting.
I just peeped her new FOX television show Flirty Dancing, which is a US take on a popular UK dating dance show where singles learn a routine and then pair up and dance to see if their dance floor chemistry translates to the dating couch. In the US version, the single dances with two different partners and picks one.
The Step Up alum and featured guest star of medical drama The Resident was still quite pregnant in the early version I saw of the show.
This is not the only thing the former World of Dance host has cooking!
She also just released her first book, “Gracefully You” about self-love and self-actualization and has already done in-store appearances in places like Barnes and Noble.
And in between acting appearances in shows like Supergirl, Witches of East End and American Horror Story: Asylum, in June 2017, Dewan founded Everheart Productions, with a focus on producing female-centric stories for film, television and digital platforms. Dewan will star in the scripted musical drama television series called Soundtrack this winter.
And she’s looking fabulous balancing it all…
The professional dancer is already mother to six-year-old Everly, whose father is Dewan’s ex-husband Channing Tatum.

Three of the celebrity women currently expecting recently stripped down to their bare necessities to celebrate their growing bellies.
Country singer Maren Morris took to Instagram to share a photo of herself lounging in a purple bikini in and outdoor space, perhaps while Babymooning in Kihei, Hawaii recently.
“Someone send a good virgin colada recipe,” said Morris in the caption. “#2ndTrimester.” Morris and her husband Ryan Hurd are expecting their first child together.
Further along in her pregnancy, Love and Hip Hop: NY star Erica Mena gave her followers a glimpse of her third trimester belly recently. “This is what our third trimester is looking like ? Weeks away until we meet HER♥️ ,” she captioned a photo that also promoted fashion brand FASHIONOVA.
Mena and her husband and co-star Safaree are expecting their first child together.
Finally, dancer and actress Jenna Dewan‘s bare bump look came to us compliments of her boyfriend Steve Kazee who posted a sweet birthday message to the love of his life and soon-to-be mom of his first child (her second).
He captioned a photo of the Step Up star in a cropped tee and briefs:
“This woman. What an indelible mark she has placed on my heart. The day of her birth has been a full one for us so far…dropping off the kiddo at school, baby doc appointment, nursery planning, moving into our new home, picking the kiddo up from school and so many other little life moments. Through it all I love catching eyes with her and knowing that she is the person I will be spending the rest of my life with. I couldn’t be more grateful that she was put on this earth and that we found each other through all the noise. I love you Jenna and I hope you have the happiest of birthdays!”
In continuing the tradition of showcasing moms on the Red Carpets at Award Shows all year long, here is what the moms we’ve covered on this blog wore at the 47th Annual American Music Awards
show which took place at the Microsoft Theater
in Los Angeles, California on November 24th.
Heid Klum dressed the best I have ever seen her and less pageantry in a cute feathered mini dress by Monsoori. It was my fave look of then all actually.
Christina Alguilera appeared in a white caped draping gown by Jean Paul Gaultier.
Ciara covered up her svelte shape in an electric blue pantsuit by Balmain.
Meanwhile, actress and director Regina King showed up and showed out in all black regal look by Ashi Studio and 2nd-time mom-to-be Jenna Dewan outfitted her bump in Emporio Armani.
Carrie Underwood rocked a high split with her purple gown by designer Stephanie Costello.
Actress and dancer Jenna Dewan

The pregnant American Horror Story alum showed up and showed out on the red carpet in a coral bump-hugging Emporio Armani gown that features a bateau neckline, open back and classic silk satin bow with her hair in loose ringlets.
Dewan, who recently divorced from her husband Magic Mike star Channing Tatum, was accompanied to the show by her friend Brad Goreski.

She and Tatum share a 6-year old daughter named Every together.
Jenna Dewan is pregnant!
Congrats to actress and dancer Jenna Dewan who is expecting her second child, but her first with her actor boyfriend Steve Kazee.
According to PEOPLE magazine, the baby is due in 2020. Dewan has a 6-year old daughter named Everly with her ex husband Channing Tatum.
Dewan posted an elusive photo of Everly who she only shows the back of and keeps pretty private and from the public eye.
“Becoming a mother is quite simply the absolute best ost incredible thing that has ever happened to me,” she wrote. “@stevekazee you are a gift from above and i couldn’t be more excited to be expanding our family together…!”
Jenna and Steve have been dating since the Fall of 2018. Congrats!
