Jenna told The Knot, “About nine years ago, I happened to be in New York, so I took my mom to see Once on Broadway. We cried our eyes out and fell in love with the show—in particular, the lead actor, Steve Kazee. We thought he was just so talented. And funnily enough, my mom had the biggest crush—she couldn’t stop saying, ‘he’s the cutest, so sensitive, so handsome.’ She just kept going on and on. So I said, ‘let’s wait for him at the stage door so you can say hi.’ So we did. We waited for a few minutes, and he appeared. I was pushing her forward to say hi, and Steve and I just had one of those eye-catching moments.”

She continued, “It was very quick, but it struck us both. It was a moment. My mom and I told him what a great job he did and how it was such an amazing show, and that was it. We both went off into the night. But I never forgot the moment.”

Then, she revealed how they met up years later, saying, “Life went on, as it does. Many years later, we were in different situations. I was single again, he was single. He messaged me and said something like, ‘Hey, I don’t know if you remember me, but how are you?’ And I was floored. Of course I remembered him. And that moment in 2012. And it was just kind of fate—it was totally meant to be.”

She was then asked if it was love at first sight, to which she responded, “It was. I think it was a remembrance at first sight, or that’s kinda what I like to call it. We just both thought, ‘hmm.’ You go through life and you know those moments don’t happen every day.”

Jenna was married to actor Channing Tatum from 2009, and they split up in 2018. Jenna and Steve got engaged in February 2020 and welcomed their son Callum in March 2020! Jenna shared Callum‘s entire birth story, which you can read right here.
