Jenna Dewan-Tatum and husband Channing Tatum would be content living in a tent in the middle of nowhere.
When they aren’t working, they often drive six hours outside of Los Angeles to Big Sur, where they pitch a tent and dine on pre-packaged meals.
“It gets you back to the basics, feeling connected to nature and grounded,” Dewan-Tatum tells the latest issue of DuJour magazine.
When they are working, they stay active.
“We’re very gypsy-like and we’re always on the move, but we try to keep certain things a routine no matter where we are. What I’m learning is: That’s our life,” Dewan-Tatum, 33, told the magazine.
Indeed, the family, which includes 1-year-old daughter Everly, recently decamped to Vancouver, where Dewan-Tatum spent 15-hour days filming the second season of “Witches of East End,” which premieres on Lifetime July 6, and Channing Tatum played the role of stay-at-home dad.
Dewan-Tatum feels strongly about being a working mother.
“Kids are life-transformative, but they should fit in to your life,” she said in the interview. “You don’t want to feel resentful for forgetting about a whole part of yourself. It’s tough learning how to balance and multitask; it’s a lot of balls to juggle. That’s been the biggest learning curve of this year for sure.”
Dewan-Tatum said the first-time parents are still getting to know their “sassy and opinionated” 1-year-old and haven’t started planning for No. 2 just yet.
“I think it would be really hard to have more responsibility. It takes a while to adjust to [being a mom],” she told DuJour. “You’re running around nonstop because your ‘me time’ is completely gone, but it’s also the most fulfilling thing in the entire world.”
