Ellen DeGeneres accidentally introduced Jenna Dewan as "Jenna Dewan Tatum," the name she went by before her split from Channing Tatum
Even a pro like Ellen DeGeneres can occasionally slip up.
“I have to say, before we go to break, I’m so sorry,” DeGeneres told the Step Up star. “I introduced you and it was such a habit, and I have to say the way that you and Channing are handling everything is beautiful for your daughter and the statements have been great. And I apologize.”
Continued DeGeneres, “I just have known both of you for so long, and I’m so used to saying, but…”
Dewan, 37, harbored no hard feelings.
“Honestly, thank you and everybody for all the love and support. It’s truly, so amazing. It’s all love!” she said as she got a sweet hug from World of Dance costar Jennifer Lopez.
The dancer and actress changed her social media name from “Jenna Dewan Tatum” back to “Jenna Dewan” just three weeks after she and Tatum jointly announced they had split after nearly nine years of marriage.

A source close to the couple previously told PEOPLE Dewan and Tatum tried to make things work after “growing apart” over the past year.
“They really wanted to make their marriage work,” said the insider. “But neither of them are people who will stay in something that isn’t fully right.”
The former couple has remained amicable since announcing their breakup and have continued spending time with their daughter.
“Jenna is still on good terms with Channing,” another source told PEOPLE. “They get along. They spend some time together as a family, but mostly separately with Everly.”
