One of the reasons this split has come as such a blow is because we thought we knew this couple inside and out thanks to a long history of oversharing.
The couple, who wed in 2009, have always been open about their passionate relationship.
In fact, the actress has divulged quite a bit about her sex life with Channing in the January issue of Cosmopolitan this year.
Speaking to the publication Jenna said, "We definitely have a very happy and healthy [sex life]. Something about being a dancer connects you to your physical body. It's primal, earthy, sexual energy by nature."
She added: "You feel your body in a certain way. Channing is very much the same way. He's very in tune with that."

And of course this wasn't the first time the loved-up couple have made headlines about their sex lives.
During a Q&A at the Cannes Lions in June 2016, Channing revealed, "Me and sex are friends. We're animals. It's not a means. It's something that enriches your life… it's one of the clearest ways that we communicate, it boils things down to a very primal level."
Speaking to his beautiful relationship, on Jenna's 36th birthday, Channing shared a beautiful picture of him cuddling his other half, framed by a rainbow in the background.
"I'm not sure if this woman is my Rainbow or my pot of gold but I'm lucky either way," he captioned the sweet snap. "Happy birthday cake baby!" he poignantly penned.

Jenna and Channing fell in love on the set of their 2006 film Step Up before marrying in 2009.
Previously Jenna has spoken about what it takes to have a happy marriage.
"I think it's important to be conscious about giving everyone equal attention," the 36-year-old told People earlier this year.
"I'll think, 'Okay, I've been with my daughter a lot, so Channing and I need a date night. Some days I am better at it than others, but I just try to figure it out. Like everyone else! But I do think it's important to consciously think about it."
As we said before and we will no doubt say again, love is dead.
