The former couple - who famously met on the set of noughties dance film Step Up and were married for nine years - welcomed their daughter in 2013.
Dewan and Tatum announced their split in 2018. Since then, Dewan has welcomed another child, a son called Callum, with partner of three years and fiancé Steve Kazee.
Appearing on the podcast Dear Gabby earlier this week, Dewan opened up by comparing her two postpartum experiences. Explaining that when she welcomed Everly she was working, as was Tatum in different countries (Dewan in Canada, Tatum in the UK) and it was very tough. However, with Callum, largely thanks to the pandemic, she was able to be at home a lot in a bubble with Kazee on hand ('Even though the world was crazy, I was home and in this love nest.')
'I had to travel with her and at the time Chan wasn't available to be with us for most of the part so it was me, my doula and Evie travelling when she was six weeks old to Vancouver and I went right back to work,' Dewan said. 'That was really hard because it was long hours, I did have her on set with me constantly, it was just really difficult. I had a lot of postpartum anxiety, I just never stopped. I was up a couple of times in the night, working all day, breastfeeding, pumping, I was without a partner, it was just craziness.'
However, days later, Dewan has taken to Twitter to accuse 'countless media outlets' of 'distorting' her comments to 'make it appear that I was slamming my daughter's father'.
In a statement, the dancer and actor clarified: 'As two working parents, we both faced challenges at the time, but I speak only for myself and not about him. Anyone who actually listens to the interview will clearly see that my words have been distorted for clicks and to push false, salacious gossip with no regard for the actual people involved, or the message intended.'
