Jenna Dewan-Tatum bares baby bump, talks Channing

Seven years after Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Channing Tatum danced into our hearts -- and each other's, for that matter -- the "Step Up" couple is preparing for the arrival of their first tiny dancer.

"Who knows what kind of parents we'll be?" Dewan-Tatum told Glamour magazine."We have two dogs, so we've had some practice! And as soon as this baby comes into the world, Channing and I will figure it out real fast."

The actress shows off her bare baby bump alongside some oversized stuffed animals in the magazine's May issue. While some famous moms-to-be are being berated for their maternity wear, Dewan-Tatum has been praised for her style.

"I thought my body was going to change so quickly with pregnancy that I'd freak out," she said. "But it was really gradual. There's a reason women are pregnant for nine months; by the end, you're ready to have this baby. Channing has been great. He takes the route of no confrontation, just support, saying things like, 'Do whatever you want! What do you want to eat? I'm going to leave it up to you.' "

In addition to Tatum's support, the "Witches of East End" actress says there's another secret to making their Hollywood relationship work:

"Most actors and actresses are consumed by careers and getting ahead," she said. "Channing and I are ambitious, but our relationship comes first. We take everything day by day, saying, 'OK, how can we make this work together?' "
