Did Jenna Dewan Hint at the Gender of Her Next Baby?

The triple threat actress, dancer, and singer Jenna Dewan proudly displayed her growing baby bump on Instagram last month. After she announced she was expecting a baby with her boyfriend, Steve Kazee, fans began to dissect the photo for clues to the baby’s sex. In the photo sneak peek, the actress is clothed in a beautiful lace dress, but the ensemble is made complete by a pretty, pink bow. And it has fans speculating the gender of her next child.

Eagle-eyed fans immediately noticed the pink bow accentuating Dewan’s baby bump in her maternity photoshoot. Once she posted it to social media a frenzy of speculation began. It was hard to miss: The airy, fairy-themed shoot involved gentle, romantic photos of Dewan and Kazee as they highlighted her glowing skin and growing belly.

Although the actress did, in fact, wear a pink bow around her stomach, she insists it was in no way revealing the gender of her future baby. In the photo, she is seen cradling her belly under a pink ribbon. However, she made it clear she was keeping the baby’s gender a surprise: even from herself.

In an episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,  Jenna answered questions from fans. One, in particular, called in asking about whether her photo was a hint that she was having a girl.

“On Instagram, you had posted a picture where you had a pink bow around your stomach…Does this mean you’re having another girl?” the caller speculated.

“I’m keeping this secret from myself!” Dewan replied. “But I was not trying to tell…” She continued, making it very clear that “it was not a gender reveal.”

Jenna Dewan’s excited to be expanding her family

In an interview with People, Dewan and Kazee were quite clear about their feelings about another child. When they announced their pregnancy news, they explained: “We are beyond overjoyed and couldn’t be happier to be expanding our family!”

This will be the first child for Kazee and the second baby for Dewan. The latter co-parents her 6-year-old daughter, Everly, with her ex-husband Channing Tatum.

Jenna even gushed about her pregnancy to her Instagram followers in a sweet photo of herself with daughter Everly. “Becoming a mother is quite simply the absolute best most incredible thing that has ever happened to me …”

She raved in the caption: “@stevekazee you are a gift from above and i couldn’t be more excited to be expanding our family together…! Thank you guys for all the love!!”

Steve Kazee is pretty excited about becoming a father too

Although it’s been reported that Kazee is a little nervous about becoming a dad, he told US Weekly that he is thrilled to be sharing his experience with Dewan. He, however, has also been silent about the gender of his baby-to-be.

“There’s no way to even describe how excited you are at this moment, but we’re beyond,” he told interviewers “We’re very happy. It’s an incredible experience. I’m, like, every day just in awe of the fact that there’s a life growing inside of this human being that I love so much.”

His excitement bleeds over onto his Instagram page as he posts cute photos of Jenna’s bump. He captions his photos with quips about fatherhood, how much he enjoys spending time with Jenna’s daughter Everly, and how happy he is to be making their family bigger.

“[I]…couldn’t have found a better person to build a family with,” he says of Dewan.

Jenna Dewan has found peace and happiness

Since her difficult breakup with Tatum, Dewan has overcome some tough mental health issues which inspired her new wellness book, Gracefully You: How to Live Your Best Life Every Day. The book was made available Oct. 22, and features Dewan’s practiced advice for happiness, positive mental health, and motherhood, among other things.

“It’s all about learning to connect deeply and find happiness in every aspect of your life through all the ups and downs,” she posted to her Instagram. “It’ll be full of stories and photos from my life, as well as suggestions for home, health and relationships to help you live your best life.”

As she prepares for baby number two, she’s practicing what it means to live her best life every day and continues to be a positive example to her daughter. Whether she’s about to give Everly a baby brother or sister; however, will continue to remain a secret.
