Jenna Dewan gets candid about her new body shape and why she wanted to 'get curvy'

Onwards and upwards.

27 Jul 2018

At the beginning of April 2017, the world collectively sobbed as it was confirmed that Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan had decided to split. We know what you're all thinking: first Anna and Chris, and now this?!

The couple, who tied the knot in 2009, confirmed the news via social media, simultaneously breaking hearts everywhere.

But now Jenna has spoken candidly to Women's Health and admitted that she feels like she's become more in touch with her 'womanly power' since the split.

The 37-year-old World of Dance host stripped off to show her to-die-for figure for the entirely nude article in the Global Naked Issue of the magazine, which was shot in the Californian desert.

"I did a lot of work healing from the inside out, becoming more in touch with my womanly power," she said.

She's also working to keep her dancer-body as fit as ever.

She explained: "I really like to feel strong, and I like to feel curvy. And when I say 'curvy,' I mean 'muscular.' In the gym, I add more weight rather than increasing reps because I want to build muscle, so I can pick up my daughter. Before, it used to be like, 'I wanna get long, lean muscles.' Now, I'm just like, 'I wanna feel strong and good.'

Jenna and Channing announced their split at the beginning of last year, and Jenna has since spoken out about life after the split.

She explains that there's "a lot of love" in her "new normal" and they're "very positive".

Her comments come just a couple of months after Jenna defended Channing, when (it seems, unfounded) rumours began to spread that he'd been "drinking" and "flirting".

Her rep told MailOnline: "Happy to clarify that absolutely none of these rumours are true. The reason our statement was so positive [was] because that’s the reality of the situation."

Another source suggested that their hectic schedules were behind the split. The source said: “Channing has been working non-stop, with four movies announced for 2018 alone. It is hard on a marriage to be apart so much, especially when you have a young child. Plus Jenna is in pre-production for the movie, Berlin I Love You.

“Both Channing and Jenna are devoted to their daughter and have worked hard to spend as much happy family time together, despite the problems in their relationship that the distance has seemed to magnify."
