Channing Tatum's rumoured girlfriend Jessie J reveals she can't have children mid-concert
As the rumour mill seems to suggest, Channing Tatum of Magic Mike fame is dating singer-songwriter, Jessie J.
Channing, who separated from his partner of nine years, Jenna Dewan, back in April, has been spotted with Jessie several times now, with a source telling US Weekly that the pair have been seeing each other for a couple of months.
Their relationship seems to be confirmed, however, after Jessie delivered a rousing speech on her inability to conceive naturally while performing at the Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday night.
Channing has since taken to social media to praise his purported girlfriend, writing on Instagram "This woman just poured her heart out on stage at the Royal Albert Hall. Whoever was there got to witness something special. Wow."
The 30-year-old opened up about her fertility struggles mid-concert while performing in her latest UK album tour.
Jessie, whose real name is Jessica Ellen Cornish, explained to her fans that she had been told by doctors that she could never conceive naturally.
While Jessie had initially decided to keep her struggle private, she soon realised that penning a song about the experience could help people in a similar position.
"I was told four years ago that I can't ever have children," the singer explained when speaking to the crowd.
"I don't tell you guys for sympathy because I'm one of millions of women and men that have gone through this and will go through this."
"It can't be something that defines us but I wanted to write this song for myself in my moment of pain and sadness but also to give myself joy, to give other people something that they can listen to in that moment when it gets really hard," she continued."So if you've ever experienced anything with this or have seen somebody else go through it or have lost a child, then please know that you're not alone in your pain and I'm thinking of you when I sing this song."
Jessie has previously said in a number of interviews that she hopes to be a mother one day.
News of Channing and Jessie's budding relationship comes just six months after the actor announced his split from Jenna Dewan - with whom he shares a five-year-old daughter, Everly.
In April, the pair announced their separation on social media.
"First off, it feels odd that we have to share this kind of thing with everyone, but it’s a consequence of the lives we’ve chosen to lead, which we also happen to be deeply grateful for," the statement read. "We’re living in an incredible moment in time, but it’s also a time where truth can easily get distorted into “alternative facts. So we want to share the truth so you know that if you didn’t read it here then it’s most certainly fiction"
"We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple," they continued. "We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together. Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now"
"There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision — just two best-friends realizing it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible. We are still a family and will always be loving dedicated parents to Everly. We won’t be commenting beyond this, and we thank you all in advance for respecting our family’s privacy. Sending lots of love to everyone, Chan&Jenna"
Regardless of whether Channing and Jessie's love affair goes anywhere, I think we can applaud Jessie's willingness to speak candidly about a topic which is so often shrouded from the public eye.
