Jenna was on the show to promote her show, World of Dance, with co-stars Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, and Derek Hough. Out of habit, Ellen accidentally introduced “Jenna Dewan Tatum” before quickly realizing her mistake and correcting herself.
Before cutting for commercial break, Ellen addressed the issue and apologized, reports Pop Culture. She said:
“I have to say, before we go to break, I’m so sorry. I introduced you and it was such a habit. And I have to say the way that you and Channing [Tatum] are handling everything is beautiful for your daughter and the statements have been great. And I apologize. I just have known both of you for so long, and I’m so used to saying, but…”
Jenna jumped in and responded:
“Honestly, thank you and everybody for all the love and support. It’s truly, so amazing. It’s all love!”
In April, Channing and Jenna announced their split after nine years of marriage in a joint statement. The two have a four-year-old daughter.
