Jenna Dewan’s quest to capture the ideal family Christmas photo was quite the journey. With a humorous Instagram video posted on Saturday, the 43-year-old actress gave her fans a behind-the-scenes look at the rocky photo shoot.
She may be the queen of glitz and glamour, but she also knows how to keep things real.
Jenna skillfully blends glamour and relatability, whether she’s showing us the hilarious mishaps of a hectic Christmas photo shoot with her adorable family or leading us on a journey through her fitness routines that make us doubt our dedication to the gym.
Jenna Dewan’s adorable christams photos
Adorable matching red and white plaid pajamas were worn by Dewan, her fiancé Steve Kazee, her children Everly (10) and Callum (3), and the family’s four dogs in the video. Things did not go as planned, even though a professional photographer was there to capture the moments of the holiday.
Surprisingly, Wylie, Cosmo, Stella, and Meeka, the family’s dogs, cooperated for the group photo when offered enticing treats by Dewan and 48-year-old Kazee.
Jenna Dewan struggled a little bit when it came time for the family photo by the glowing Christmas tree on the couch. The Rookie star is seen in the video trying to comfort a sobbing Callum, who looks to be overly frustrated with the entire situation.
Callum kept crying while Dewan, her fiancé Steve Kazee, and Everly made goofy faces for the camera in an effort to save the picture. For an instant, it appeared as though they had managed to get everyone smiling in the ideal picture.
But Callum was gone from the picture in an instant, leaving his family to carry on without him. The dogs’ constant running away during the busy shoot added to the chaos and led to a series of hilarious chases.
Dewan joked in her caption, “‘Twas a good time had by all,” jokingly pointing out the tiresome difficulties of getting everyone to pose for a picture.
Jenna Dewan has a talent for keeping things real
When it comes to recording her children’s accomplishments, Jenna Dewan has a talent for keeping things real and doesn’t sugarcoat the moment. Dewan posted a number of pictures that gave an idea of the “Instagram vs reality” of the back-to-school season while Everly and Callum were getting ready for the new school year.
Everly and Dewan were seen in the first picture grinning and striking a lovely pose with their arms around one another. In the second, Callum was seen smiling beside a bright yellow backpack that looked like a school bus. However, the whole story was not conveyed by these upbeat pictures.
Everly is seen in a video that Jenna Dewan posted to Instagram jokingly dragging her feet—clearly not thrilled about starting school. Callum was seen sobbing and kneeling in the final image, right where he had cheerfully posed for his school photo. Dewan’s frank portrayal illuminates the real and occasionally difficult times parents experience when their kids return to school.
The Timeline of Jenna Dewan and Steve Kazee’s Relationship
In the autumn of 2021, Jenna Dewan told a touching tale about her relationship with Steve Kazee in a magazine called The Knot. She disclosed that, in reality, they had crossed paths several years prior to their official courtship, during Kazee’s tenure in the Broadway production of Once.
When Jenna was in New York about nine years ago, she took her mother to see Once on Broadway. They were impressed by the lead actor, Steve Kazee, and felt he was very talented.
They were greatly impacted by the show. Jenna’s mother admitted that she harbored a mild infatuation for Steve, even going so far as to describe him as the most endearing, generous, and attractive person she had ever laid eyes on.
Coincidentally, Jenna and her mom made the decision to wait for the Once cast outside the stage door following the performance. Jenna and her mother congratulated Steve on his outstanding performance when he arrived. When Jenna and Steve spent their short time together, they experienced something that they will never forget.
Life went on, and when Jenna and Steve found themselves without a partner years later, destiny had other plans. Steve said something like, “Hey, I don’t know if you remember me, but how are you?” when he contacted Jenna.
Though Jenna was surprised, she did remember him and that memorable moment they had back in 2012. As a result, their tale came full circle, demonstrating how fate occasionally has a way of uniting people in the most touching yet surprising ways.
