Jenna Dewan is clarifying comments she made in a recent podcast episode of Dear Gabby. During the episode, Jenna spoke about becoming a new mom to her daughter, Everly, saying, “I had to travel with her, and at the time, Chan wasn’t available to be with us for the most part. So it was me, my doula, and Evie all by ourselves traveling at six weeks.” The quote was picked up online, and Jenna says her words were “distorted.”

“It’s unfortunate that countless media outlets have taken an important conversation on a woman’s experience with postpartum issues and pulled quotes to make it appear that I was slamming my daughter’s father, something I would never do,” Jenna wrote in a statement posted to her Twitter account. “As two working parents, we both faced challenges at the time, but I speak only for myself and not about him. Anyone who actually listens to the interview, something I encourage everyone to do, will clearly see that my words have been distorted for clicks and to push false, salacious gossip with no regard for the actual people involved or the message intended.”

A source tells People that Channing also believes Jenna’s comments were distorted and that he “did everything in his power to be there for his family” after Everly’s birth.
