Dewan-Tatum: My daughter goes against the grain

Jenna Dewan-Tatum tries to spend as much time as possible with her daughter Everly, who she shares with husband Channing.

The 34-year-old actress shares 21-month-old daughter Everly with her husband Channing Tatum.

And Jenna is proud of her baby girl, as Everly is shaping up to be quite a dynamic person.

“She’s a go-against-the-grain kind of girl, which I love,” she gushed to People magazine. “I just want her to be a confident, happy, passionate girl who feels comfortable in her skin and is able to pursue her dreams.”

Jenna is convinced the best way to nurture Everly’s mental and emotional growth is by spending a lot of time with her.

The doting mother doesn’t want to miss a moment of her daughter’s development.

“I make the most of any time I can spend with her,” Jenna shared. “I mean, 24 hours a day and I’m like, ‘Oh, I’ve been playing games with her all day long!’”

But Everly doesn’t just play games, as the toddler is already engaged in a number of extracurricular activities.

“She’s scheduled! She has soccer class, art class and music,” Jenna detailed. “[And every night] from 7.30 p.m. to 8.00 p.m., we have parties after dinner. She’s obsessed with Sia‘s Chandelier and [Taylor Swift’s] Shake It Off. She knows the dances, She’s learned off the videos.”

Everly, who turns two years old on May 31, is already talking.

And Jenna is impressed with what the toddler has to say.

“She’s talking a lot more,” Jenna said. “Her new favourite thing is to tell me, ‘Mommy, I want down,’ but it’s never an appropriate time. We’ll be walking down the street and I’m like, ‘No Everly, you can’t [sit] down here.’ ”
