Five-month-old Callum is Dewan and fiance Steve Kazee’s first child. The adorable baby, according to his parents, seems to be following in the footsteps of his musically-inclined father.

The couple recently shared on Instagram a video where Callum was seen hitting a button on the play guitar. Callum, while playing with his toy, appeared to be sitting on the "Step Up" star’s lap.

His toy struck a funny tune which made their son smile from ear to ear. Kazee, 44, looks like he approved of Callum’s growing interest.

The couple are dedicated parents to their child, who was born in March 2020. His real name is "Callum Michael Rebel Kazee" - a unique name with a nice back story.

On how they came up with the unique name, Kazee said their baby’s name is a Gaelic word for “dove.” “Michael” is Kazee’s middle name, while "Rebel" is inspired by his mother’s name Reba.

Dewan said she has plans of expanding her brood.

Dewan announced her pregnancy in September 2019. The news came after she ended her marriage from 40-year-old actor Channing Tatum.

Even if Dewan had put an end to her relationship with Tatum, she still shares responsibility over their child. The "Magic Mike" star shares 7-year-old daughter Evelyn with his ex-wife.

Their separation in 2018 shocked fans as they have been together for 9 years. The former couple’s relationship started in the 2006 movie "Step Up" that starred both of them.

Dewan said she has plans of expanding her brood. She is open to the possibility of having another child soon.

The professional dancer revealed that Evelyn is excited about having siblings in the future. Evelyn also told her that she is ready to handle tasks like all big sisters do.

Dewan said that Evelyn is old enough to understand her responsibility.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Dewan delighted her fans on Instagram with an adorable photo of herself cuddling Callum. Because of quarantine, sharing the photo online was Dewan’s way of connecting to her family.

The actress is "limiting visitors" for her newborn as they all practice social distancing and isolation.
