Jenna Dewan spoke about first meeting Channing Tatum in a touching interview

This has us very emotional.

As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end, but we really wish that wasn't the case when it comes to the love story of Chan and Jen.

Speaking in a new interview for the 15th edition of Vegas Magazine, Jenna explained what it was first like to meet Channing when they were working on Step Up.

She said: "We started out as friends, and I would say it was an instant recognition. When we met it felt like we had known each other for many years."

The pair who announced their split last month took to Instagram breaking the news and highlighting that it was a mutual agreement and they both plan to co-parent their daughter Everly and still very much remain a family.

Jenna and Channing first met when they were on the set of Step Up, capturing our hearts with their on set romance, it too developed off set and the pair went on to wed and were married for nine years.

We had to. #stepup10years

The star continued to talk about the fact that this is not the end for the pair and that they plan to remain friends saying:

"Ultimately, no matter what Chan and I are doing, we’re really great friends. I think that will never change, no matter what."

And lastly, the star talked about looking forward with hope and that to always carry the mentality that better days are and will come.

She explained:

"Being a dancer, you’re ingrained with this mentality to make it work, and you can do it all, but as I matured … and had a child, I’ve realised that you do the things you’re meant to do," she said. "You have to protect that and trust that even though you’re saying no to things, there are a ton of other, better yeses that will be coming."
