Channing Tatum and Jessie J have been in a relationship since late 2018 and we've got everything you need to know about their star-studded romance.
Jessie J and Channing Tatum were one of the most surprising couples to come out of 2018, not only because Channing had announced his separation from wife of nine years, Jenna Dewan, six months earlier in April.
The Magic Mike star announced he and Jenna were 'lovingly' separating and were still very much on good terms, and co-parenting their daughter, Evelyn and since then, we've had glimpses into the star's new relationship with pop star Jessie.
Channing and Jessie have made it very clear they're super loved up, as is the actor's ex Jenna – who announced in September she's pregnant with boyfriend Steve Kazee's baby, telling People magazine: "We are beyond overjoyed and couldn’t be happier to be expanding our family!"
As Jenna begins a new chapter with her beau, we take a look at Jessie and Channing's relationship timeline...
Jessie J described Channing as her "cuddle machine" in an Instagram Stories post telling her beau how much she misses him, sharing a rare picture of them together in the process.
The couple appear to be on holiday in the sweet snap, with Jessie looking fresh faced as she smiles beside Channing who wears a vest.
Palm trees and blue sky can be seen in the background and it's seemingly a throwback to a sunnier time, as the pair are currently separated as she embarks on her latest tour.
Jessie and Channing have reportedly moved into a country mansion in Suffolk together, after they've been spending more and more time over in the UK, and a county that's just next to Jessie's hometown of Essex!
The A-listers have swapped the glitz and glamour of Hollywood for the peaceful country hangout- as Jessie is appearing as a coach on The Voice Kids, and Channing's Magic Mike XXL show is still on in the West End.
The couple stopped by Channing's Magic Mike Live show in London for date night in July. Fan-girling over her actor beau, Jessie captioned the snap: "Watching Magic Mike XXL with Magic Mike" and we are continuing to be incredibly jealous of this entire situation.
The pair have come almost full circle, as it was in November 2018 when they were first spotted in the same venue, with Jessie cheering on Channing which first caused people to wonder if they were together, just days after he posted an Instagram gushing about Jessie's skills as a performer.
Jessie spoke about her relationship with Channing for the first time in June, confirming she's happy and content during an interview on Lorraine. Although she remained coy when she was quizzed on her love life, the pop star revealed: "I am just very content with my life. Everyone deserves happiness."
She also shared a heartfelt note about her bae on Instagram, writing underneath a picture Channing posted saying he wanted to "start creating again".
Underneath his snap jessie wrote: "Create create create baby. Be you. Be free.""Your layers of talent and passion for what you do are unstoppable. Your time to [shine]."
Proving they're happy to pack on the PDA over the internet, Channing told his girlfriend he'd be her "snack" when she uploaded an Instagram post about needing a snack while she was "Stressy J" as she tried to pack. The comment came just a few weeks after the dancer posted a photo of himself completely nude as a forfeit to losing a game of Jenga with his other half.
He wrote alongside the steamy snap: "I lost a game of Jenga to Jessica Cornish. The loser (me) had to post a picture the other person (Jessica Cornish) picked... Smh and fml... I’m never playing Jenga with her ever again," to which Jessie responded: "Sharing is caring."
Channing and Jessie proved they've got their own in-jokes when she commented on a photo Channing posted which was captioned: "I'm listening... universe, world, people, friends, self... I am listening. What do I need to hear? God?"
Jessie then replied to the steely black and white selfie: "'Baby shark do do do do do do'... and so on and so on..."
Jessie and Channing were pictured out in public for the first time on March 14th, after touching down in London the day before.
Strolling along hand-in-hand before they hit the shops, Jessie and Channing couldn’t stop smiling at each other.
Jessie was dressed casually in a camel-coloured tracksuit and a bomber jacket with her hair scraped back in a bun, while Channing made a low-key appearance in jeans teamed with a hoodie, checked shirt and black cap.
The pair have managed to stay pretty low-key ever since they started dating around October of last year, but are slowly opening up their romance online.
Channing recently dropped a thirsty comment under a holiday snap of Jessie, saying: "Hottest Instagram food model in the game right now".
Jessie has refrained from posting about Channing, until the start of March when she posted a private conversation between the pair revealing a pretty soppy poem he had sent to her.
It read: "Yes i won't rest till i caress fresh face Jess. I Will finesse 'til success. Never digress. Just progress. Bless".
She also posted a video of them together in the kitchen playing around with the dog filter, showing everyone she's ready to go public with the relationship.
According to New! magazine, the pair are now discussing marriage and Channing is considering proposing to the 'Price Tag' singer.
Their source revealed: "Jessie and Channing’s relationship has been going from strength to strength lately, which has really taken their friends by surprise."
Repaying the favour (and getting some serious eye candy at the same time), Jessie J turned up to the Leicester Square premier of Magic Mike XXL starring the man himself and gave it a plug on her Instagram.
She was spotted in a private box watching the show with friends, and although the two didn't interact, it was pretty obvious why the 'Price Tag' singer was there.
Channing went to watch Jessie play at The Royal Albert Hall in London and couldn't help himself from gushing at her talent in an Instagram post.
He wrote to his 17 million followers: "This woman just poured her heart out on stage at the Royal Albert Hall. Whoever was there got to witness something special. Wow" and everyone's suspicions were pretty much confirmed.
Jessie also indirectly threw shade at people pointing out the physical similarities between her and Channing's ex, posting a lengthy statement on Instagram.
She asked (without alluding directly to the story) 'who feels good about this story? I don't' and saying 'is picking who is prettier and then saying why a good activity for women to participate in? No'.
The tabloids report that Jenna has been told Channing is dating Jessie.
A source told E!: "Jenna knew that Channing was dating and it wasn't a surprise. A friend had told her what was going on."
The source added that as long as Channing's main priority is their daughter, Everly, things should be fine.
Just a month after announcing their separation after nine years of marriage, Channing took to Instagram to wish his ex, Jenna, a Happy Mother's Day, showing what great terms the couple ended on.
He said: "Jenna, Happy Mother's Day baby".
The internet was truly shook when a statement about Jenna and Channing's separation was posted onto their social media channels, announcing they were separating, allowing 'love to take them on different paths'.
They first got together when they starred alongside each other in Step Up (2006) and got married in 2009, and have stayed on good terms with each other since they separated and Jenna has a boyfriend, Steve Kazee.
