It's been more than a year since Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan announced they were going their separate ways, and now, there's truly no going back. Channing and Jenna's divorce is final, and it's probably for the best, considering that this will make it easier for both of them to move on with their lives -- and with their new relationships.

  • As of Tuesday, Channing and Jenna are both legally single.

    As TMZ reported, Channing and Jenna wanted the divorce decree finished before they moved on to the divorce settlement, and they got their wish. The reason? They're both in serious relationships -- Jenna with Steve Kazee and Channing with Jessie J. -- and they wanted to be free to move on.

    This means that they can get married to other people now, if they so choose.

  • It makes sense that they'd want to push this through, especially in Jenna's case. 

    She and Steve are expecting a baby together pretty soon, so it wouldn't be the most shocking thing in the world if they were also planning to get engaged. Tying the knot would be legally impossible if Jenna was still married to Channing. 

    We're definitely ready to find out if we see Jenna with some new bling sooner rather than later. 

  • Next, Channing and Jenna will have to figure out a property and custody settlement.

    Looks like so far, they don't have anything arranged for how they'll officially split time with their 6-year-old daughter, Everly -- and there are all the more technical and financial aspects of separating their lives that they'll have to weave their way through in the coming months.

    We just hope it can all remain civil. Jenna and Channing were definitely one of our favorite celebrity couples, and we'd hate to see this get ugly! 

  • We hope they can wrap this up smoothly and move on.

    Divorce is never easy, even if things did seem to work out for the best for everyone involved.

    We just want to see these two happy and able to live their lives in the future in the way that they want, and now, it sounds like they're well on their way to making that happen.
