Jenna Dewan became a mother for the second time on March 6. She announced the birth of her first baby with fiancé Steve Kazee this afternoon. They welcomed a son named Callum Michael Rebel Kazee. She already has a six-year-old daughter, Everly, with her ex-husband Channing Tatum.

The birth of their son comes about three weeks after the couple got engaged. Here’s everything to know about the actor and new father.

He and Dewan announced the birth of their son with dual black-and-white IG posts.

When it came time to announce the birth of Callum, both Dewan and Kazee opted for close-up shots of their newborn. “And just like that, our hearts exploded into all of eternity and beyond ❤️🌈❤️” Dewan captioned a photo of her hugging her son. “Welcome to the world you little angel! ❤️ Callum Michael Rebel Kazee 3/6/20.”

Kazee shared a shot of his son holding his finger, writing, “In an instant our universe burst wide open and nothing would ever be the same. Welcome to earth star child.
Callum Michael Rebel Kazee 3/6/20.”

They dated for nearly a year and a half before getting engaged.

Kazee and Dewan were first reported to be dating in October 2018, about six months after news of her divorce from Tatum. A source told People the two had “been dating for a couple [of] months [prior to news of their relationship coming out], and she’s really happy.”

On February 18, Dewan announced that Kazee had proposed. She shared a photo of the pair kissing as she showed off a diamond ring, which Kazee designed with actress Nikki Reed. “A lifetime to love and grow with you…you have my heart ❤️,” Dewan captioned her photo.

Kazee shared the same shot on his Instagram, writing, “When you wake in the morning I will kiss your face with a smile no one has ever seen. When you wake in the morning I will kiss your eyes and say it’s you I have loved all these years.”

On her Instagram Story, Dewan even shared a shot from the moment Kazee proposed to her.

Dewan and Kazee have posted about their relationship on Instagram regularly.

Initially, the couple kept their romance relatively quiet throughout their year together. In December 2018, Kazee shared photo booth pictures of himself and Dewan along with the message, “Happy Birthday Jenna! Somehow it feels like my birthday over and over again because I keep getting the gift of you every day. ❤️🐞❤️”

Dewan made their relationship Instagram official in June with a simple photo of the pair captioned, “Speaking of peace….❤️.”

Since then, the couple has been more open about their romance. Dewan gave Kazee a sweet shoutout for his birthday in October.

By December, Kazee jokingly wrote next to a series of Dewan photos on his Instagram, “Disclaimer: I’m aware this is basically an @jennadewan fan account now.”

He’s a Tony-winning actor.

Like Dewan, Kazee is a performer with TV credits including Shameless and Nashville. Most notably, he won the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical in 2012 for Once. His other stage credits include Spamalot and workshops for the recent Broadway musical adaption of Pretty Woman.


He’s already a great dog dad.

If Kazee’s social media is any indication, he’s already got the nurturing thing down. His Instagram is filled with photos of his dogs, Stella, Violet, and Cosmo. Dewan also regularly shares photos of her pets on Instagram, perhaps something the couple initially bonded over.

He’s a wrestling fan.

One of Kazee and Dewan’s first public outings came in June when they went to a WWE match. Clearly, Kazee is a fan of the sport, as the couple was at another match just hours before news of Dewan’s pregnancy broke. They documented on their Instagram Stories. “Mega. Fan,” Dewan captioned videos of Kazee during the car ride to the event.

Dewan told John Cena on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in April that Kazee got her into wrestling. “Steve, my boyfriend, is a huge wrestling fan. And he got me so into it!” she said. “I watched WrestleMania by myself, like, he wasn’t even in town and I watched WrestleMania. Because I had to know if Becky Lynch was going to beat Ronda Rousey!”

He’s a musician and has a surprising Twilight connection.

Dewan is known both for her acting and dancing skills. Similarly, Kazee doubles as an actor and singer. In addition to singing on Broadway, Shameless, and Nashville, he’s also featured on the Christina Perri song, “A Thousand Years,” featured on the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn soundtrack.
