Well, talk about keeping it real in the most unexpected way! Jenna Dewan admits she was "blindsided" by her ex, Channing Tatum, dating singer Jessie J. Although we can understand her sentiments, Jenna's confession is a bit surprising considering she's in a new relationship and is being this forthcoming in a book about seeing her former husband move on so quickly.

  • In her new memoir, Jenna is spilling the beans about her feelings and how Channing didn't give her a heads-up about Jessie.

    Channing Tatum and Jenna were married for nearly nine years before announcing their split last year. The once couple, who have a 6-year-old daughter named Everly, have since moved on respectively. Both started new relationships months after their split, with Channing and Jessie becoming a new pair, and Jenna and Steve Kazee giving love a try.

  • "I was learning things about my ex most people wouldn’t have to face -- and over the internet, as it was happening," she reveals in her book.

    "There I was, on a plane, alone, finding out about his new relationship. I felt blindsided," the celeb mom added, according to an excerpt from her memoir E! News published. "Choosing grace as I learned everything about my personal situation along with the rest of the world was really difficult."

  • According to Jenna, she decided to take the high road.

    "It was quite a challenge to remain graceful; to say the least. That's when your real character comes out," she wrote in her book.

    "Instead of reacting the way I wanted to ... I asked myself this: How do I choose grace in this moment? Had I not been practicing this way of life beforehand, I definitely wouldn't have handled this news very gracefully."

  • Jenna has since found love with Tony Award winner Steve Kazee and is on to the next chapter -- that includes growing her family.

    Jenna and Steve are expecting their first child together! Clearly, Jenna has found love again as she and Steve reconnected after meeting years ago.

    "When I was ready, I started dating someone amazing," she mentioned in her book. "It was this cosmically great thing where we circled back around each other after a moment of instant recognition years ago."

  • Seems like everything worked out for everyone.

    Although we can only imagine how painful it was splitting from Channing (they did have a high-profile relationship), we're happy to see Jenna and Channing happy in new relationships. Things don't always work out the way you plan, but that doesn't mean your happily ever after can't manifest in a different way.
