In October 2018, a source confirmed to People that Jenna, 38 and Steve, 43 had been "dating for a couple [of] months."

You probably know Jenna as Nora Clark in the 2006 film Step Up, but you might be less aware of her beau and soon-to-be baby daddy.

Well, it turns out he is an accomplished performer, having won a Tony for his performance in the Broadway production Once.

Anyway, the couple's romance is just as adorable as you can imagine.

Last Valentine's Day, in fact, Steve wrote a beautiful and heartfelt caption about his love for Jenna, to go with a stunning photo of the actress.

"Somehow, inexplicably, I’ve been granted the honor to have this be the person that I get to be side by side with throughout this wild journey we call life," he wrote." Jenna I don’t know what I did to deserve your love but I will always be so thankful that our lives found their way to each other. Here’s looking at you, kid. Happy Valentines Day my love."

Naturally, the touching message was met with a hugely positive response from fans.

"Beautifully said, you guys seem so happy together, so happy for both of you, Its hard to find that kind of love, Wishing you both a lifetime of love and happiness," one person wrote.
