As if the world needed more proof that Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Channing Tatum are the best couple ever!

In her cover interview for the May issue of Redbook, Jenna opened up about her relationship with Channing Tatum, who she met on the set of Step Up in 2005 and married in 2009. While gushing about their 3-year-old daughter Everly, the actress and dancer delved deep into her relationship with her husband, talking about everything from the importance of communication to how she and Channing keep things interesting in the bedroom.

Most notably, Jenna talked about how important it is to "keep it fresh" and spice things up for yourself—not just for your partner.

"I think all women should keep [sex] exciting for themselves," she said. "People always ask, 'Do you do anything to keep it fresh for your man?' I hate that question. I'm like, 'No. Why is it for your man?' I do things to keep it fresh for myself. The lingerie I buy is not for him necessarily. It's for us and for myself. If you feel sexy, then it's good for you."

And clearly, this amazing advice has been working just fine for her and Channing.

"We are not sex schedulers—not yet!," Jenna told Redbook. "Give us a couple more years. Maybe with child number two. There's a beauty in being two busy people because we get a lot of time to miss each other. To continue to miss someone after so many years is kind of a blessing in disguise."

Further proving she and Channing are #RelationshipGoals, Jenna also opened up about how she's learned to navigate her biggest relationship challenge: communication.

"You change when you're together from 25 to 35," she said. "I think maybe in my early 20s, I might have tiptoed around issues or didn't want to make too many waves. Now it's like, 'This is how I'm feeling.' You have to be okay with the other person becoming defensive, to let them be emotional and accept that it won't be okay for a while."

She also discussed how important it is to her that both she and her husband identify as feminists.

"We should want equality for men and women," Jenna said. "Men should want that too. Chan is for women's rights and so am I. Women should have the right to be the best they can be and make their own choices for themselves. Our daughter is young, but I think as she gets older, she's going to be all about the standard for women we keep at home—she's going to be strong."

"We want our daughter to grow up confident and believing that she can go after whatever she wants," she continued.
