Remember when our hearts turned cold and we realised love was dead? It happened on 3rd April when Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum announced they were ending their marriage after nine years.

The normal obsessions over celebrity couples were heightened when it came to Jenna and Channing. We literally watched their love story start on screen in cult teen film Step Up, and then they seemed to really defy the odds of the Hollywood couple by staying together for a pretty long time, constantly having PDA red carpet moments, always saying the sweetest things about each other in interviews and who can forget that Lip Sync Battle number to Ginuwine's "Pony".

However, it wasn't meant to be. They called in quits, proclaiming they are still "best friends" and will always be "loving, dedicated parents to Everly", their five-year-old daughter.

Since then, they both appear to be happy too. Channing is reportedly dating Jessie J and Jenna has moved on with the actor Steve Kazee.

Here's everything we know about their, relatively new, relationship so far:

3rd April 3 2018: Jenna and Channing announce their separation, this is what they post on social media:

28th May 2018: Jenna gives an interview to Harper'sBazaar.com where she talks about being single and adapting to the changes in her life:

"The moves I'm making are completely not related to my marriage or separation, interestingly enough. I was always very happy being a wife," Dewan says, but bigger questions were looming, like "'Who are you? What do you want to give to the world? What excites you?' Those feelings started bubbling up for me, naturally… so I really wanted to expand my life, and myself. And that was my journey, no one else's.

"I feel a sense of joy and freedom and excitement, truly, about a new chapter in my life. And I have no attachments to how that's going to look, or what that's going to be. I feel really open, and I feel hopeful."

27th September 2018: Sources report that both the Magic Mike actor and Jenna are seeing other people.

"Jenna has been on a few dates but doesn't talk about a boyfriend," the source tells People magazine. While another source says Channing has also been on a few dates and is having fun but it's nothing "serious".

18th October 2018: A week after the first reports about a relationship between Channing and Jessie J emerge, Us Weekly claims that Jenna is totally fine with her ex moving on because she too is "seeing someone new".

But who is this person? The world wonders...

27th October 2018: Jenna officially files for divorce from Channing citing Irreconcilable Differences and asking for joint legal and physical custody of their daughter. The whole thing seems pretty amicable and, according to documents obtained by the media, Jenna also asks to be now known as Jenna Dewan rather than Jenna Dewan Tatum.

30th October 2018: A day before Channing and Jenna are pictured trick or treating with their daughter and getting along just fine, the identity of Jenna's new boyfriend is rumoured to be Steve Kazee - a broadway actor who won a prestigious Tony award in 2012 for his leading actor role in the musical Once.

People quotes a source who says the pair have been "dating for a couple of months and she's really happy" which is cute!

The couple also appear in an Instagram photo on Jenna's friend's account from a group theme park outing.

2nd November 2018: Jenna and Steve are pictured together walking around Palm Springs hand-in-hand in shots published on People.

A source tells the magazine, "Jenna is having a lot of fun with Steve. They've been dating for months out of the spotlight and it's becoming more serious. They have a lot in common."

12th November 2018: Jenna talks about Steve for the first time, kind of, to US Weekly who ask her how things are going.

"I don't talk about my persona life, but thank you! I am very happy," she tells the publication.

3rd December 2018: The couple make things slightly more public when Steve comments on a photo of Jenna on her Instagram.

Promoting her Danskin collection, Jenna captioned the photo: "Have you found your favourite yet?" to which Steve replied: "Yes. I have." 😍

It also happens to be Jenna's birthday (HB Jen) so Steve uploads an adorable classic early-stages-of-a-relationship photobooth print out of the couple.

"Sometimes it feels like my birthday over and over again because I keep getting the gift of you every day," he captions the picture.

And, that's it, our hearts have defrosted. Well done, Steve.
