Jenna Dewan (opens in new tab) is moving forward by going back—to her old name, that is.
According to ET Online (opens in new tab), court records confirm that the actress' attorney has filed an ex-parte application to restore her name to "Jenna Lee Dewan" following her divorce from Channing Tatum (opens in new tab). The paperwork was filed Friday and will officially remove Tatum's last name from Dewan's legal name.
Dewan and Tatum announced they were separating (opens in new tab) in April 2018 after eight years of marriage. Their divorce was finalized last November. The former couple remain committed to coparenting their six-year-old daughter, Everly, and have agreed to share custody 50/50.
A source close to the pair told ET that they were working with a counselor to craft a formal plan for dividing up holidays with Everly going forward. This news comes after Tatum asked the court to intervene (opens in new tab) and help set a holiday visitation schedule in November.
Both Dewan and Tatum have found happiness with other people. Tatum is dating singer Jessie J and Dewan is currently expecting a child with boyfriend Steve Kazee.
