On the Wednesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the daytime talk show host made a such an embarrassing mistake as she called Jenna Dewan by her former surname.
It all happened on Wednesday’s episode of the show, after taking the interview of Jennifer Lopez, Ellen brought her fellow World of Dance judges on the stage, where while introducing the Step Up star, Ellen accidentally called her Jenna Dewan-Tatum. However, Ellen later apologized to Jenna for calling her using the last name of her ex Channing Tatum.
“I’m so sorry. I introduced you, and it was just such a habit,” the talk show host said. “And I have to say, the way that you and Channing are handling everything is beautiful and for your daughter and the statements have been great. And I apologize. I just have known both of you for so long, and I’m so used to saying [it].”
Jenna seemed to understand Ellen’s mistake; she also went on to thank her fans and followers for their support since the separation. She said holding Jennifer’s hand, “I know, I know. Honestly, thank you and everybody for all the love and support.” She added, “It’s truly, like, it’s so moving. So, thank you. It’s all love.”
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan announce their split via a joint statement on April 2, the two had been married for eight years.
“We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple,” a part of their separation statement read. “We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together. Absolutely nothing has changed about how we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now. There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision—just two best-friends realizing it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible.”
