Watch: How Jenna Dewan's Daughter Is Following in Her Dancing Footsteps

Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum's daughter is dancing to her own beat.

In a new interview, the Witches of East End star revealed that while their 9-year-old daughter Everly inherited their love of dancing, she seems to have fallen in love with a specific type of movement.

"Evie is into Irish dance. So this is her biggest, hugest passion," Jenna told Kelly Clarkson during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show Jan. 17. "I showed her Riverdance videos and she was like, 'I want to do this. Find me a dance class.'"

The former World of Dance host explained Everly's unique interest was one she was particularly looking forward to pursuing.

"We had done ballet, tap, it wasn't looking good. She wasn't into it," Jenna continued. "I googled and found a woman here and she started classes. She became obsessed. We are dance competitions and we do the whole thing."

Although Jenna herself has a background in the area, she noted that she's certainly not a "dance mom."


Jenna Dewan's Quotes on Motherhood

"I grew up at dance competitions, but my mom was not a dance mom," she explained. "She was really grounded. Evie is really good, but there are moments where I want to tell her to point her foot but I can't cause then you're the mom telling her what to do."

And as much as she doesn't want to overstep in her daughter's passion, Jenna noted that Everly isn't exactly eager to listen to her advice either when she attempts to do so.

"In the back of my mind I'm going like, 'I do this for a living,'" Jenna joked. "There are some critiques that I can give you.'"
