BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Jenna Dewan-Tatum is juggling a new TV series and a new baby while getting little sleep like a lot of working moms.
The actress said her husband, actor Channing Tatum, visits the Vancouver, British Columbia, location of her Lifetime series “Witches of East End” to help out with the baby. The show debuts this fall.
Everly Tatum was born May 31 in London, where her father was filming the movie “Jupiter Ascending.” Dewan-Tatum said the couple has a rule about not going more than two or three weeks without seeing each other.
“We don’t break it,” she said. “Channing has been amazing. He’s working at the same time, but we prepared for it.”
“Witches of East End” has a female-centric cast, including Julia Ormond, and Dewan-Tatum said she’s getting plenty of support. She said she is breastfeeding and producers have been flexible with her schedule.
“It’s been quite nice to go and be creative and ignite that part of myself,” she said. “I believe it’s going to make me a better mother.”
If there was one supernatural ability Dewan-Tatum could have, she said, “I’d like to snap my fingers and be able to sleep. As a new mom I’m a little sleep deprived right now.”
The actress is doing an upcoming magazine cover shoot that will show off her post-baby body.
“The day I went into labor I had gone for an hour and a half walk, so I just kind of bounced back,” she said. “I’m lucky.”
