Finding out about your ex's new romance is hard for anyone and even famous people are affected by the news. 

In her new book, Gracefully You: How to Live Your Best Life Every Day, Jenna Dewan finally opened up about her split from Channing Tatum and was candid about the moment she found out he was dating Jessie J.

As it turns out, the 38-year-old learned about the new couple along with the rest of us as it was being reported online. “I was learning things about my ex most people wouldn’t have to face – and over the Internet, as it was happening,” she wrote. “There I was, on a plane, alone, finding out about his new relationship.”

The actress and dancer admitted that she felt “blindsided” by the news that Tatum had started a new relationship with the singer. “Choosing grace as I learned everything about my personal situation along with the rest of the world was really difficult.”

Dewan and Tatum split in April 2018 and she posted a note to her fans on Instagram explaining they would be separating after nine years of marriage. That October, the pair filed for divorce. It was that same month that Tatum and Jessie J began going public with their relationship and Dewan went public with her new beau, Steve Kazee.

Thankfully, Dewan has moved on from her previous marriage and doing phenomenal. Just this September announced the incredible news that she is expecting her first child with Kazee! Their bundle of joy will join Dewan's six-year-old daughter Everly, whom she shares with Tatum. “As soon as she found out, she started crying, like, ‘This is the best day of my life,’” Dewan said on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Dewan's book is out Tuesday, October 22.
