Jenna Dewan is glowing! The star, who is expecting a baby with boyfriend Steve Kazee, opened up to “Extra’s” Renee Bargh about her pregnancy and new dance-themed dating show.
She gushed of her pregnancy, “I’m really happy,” adding, “In the beginning, I was a little sick — a lot sick, a lot sick — but now I’m good.”
Jenna told Renee about the new FOX series "Flirty Dancing," on which strangers are taught half a dance routine and then meet for the first time on a blind date to dance and see if sparks fly.
Dewan is working hard on the show, saying, “I’m definitely tired, but at the same time, the shows are so fun and I’m literally talking about love and happiness all day long. It couldn’t be a better show to be doing while pregnant, that’s for sure.”
“I just thought how nice [it would be] to bring this old-school romance to modern-day dating, removing things like speaking to each other and using movement to connect and eye contact and all these really great things to show if you have chemistry with somebody,” she said. “We’ve made some love matches, and I feel like the best matchmaker in the world, so it’s been fun — I love it.”
How soon did she dance with Steve? “I think we went out and had a tequila-infused dance, but recently he went to the Janet Jackson concert with me… and he had the best moves. I’m like, 'You are so much fun to dance with.'"
“Flirty Dancing” premieres December 29 on FOX.
