Jenna Dewan's upcoming Mother's Day will be "family" orientated.

The Step Up star - who recently split from her husband Channing Tatum - is looking forward to spending the holiday with her four-year-old daughter Everly but also wants some "me time" too.

She said: "I always want Mother's Day to be, like, family. I want to do something together, I want to be with Evie, I just have a really nice day and then the next day, I want to go to the spa. That's what I want. I want the balance. I want the mommy time and then I want the me time. So that's my plan."

However, there's one thing the 37-year-old actress won't expect her daughter to even attempt to do - cook her breakfast.

She added: "I mean, that would be terrifying. No one wants Evie cooking breakfast for anybody ever. She does make me a card, and her biggest thing is Color Me Mine, so she'll go and make me a cup. I have, like, a million for birthdays and everything. It's, like, coffee mugs galore at my house."

Jenna adores being a mother to Everly and has some great parenthood tips she wants to pass on to others.

She shared to Entertainment Tonight: "At this age, options are really good, not saying, 'What do you want to do? You have this option or this option.' That was mind-blowing to me, how well that worked. 

"Also not getting too excited about something, because I'm really giddy, so I'd be like, 'Oh my god!' It ruins it every time, then they won't do it again. So it's like, 'That's cool.' Just play it cool. It's like your dating someone. 'That's cool. Nice. Good job with that.'"
