Jenna Dewan threw a unicorn-themed party for her daughter's 5th birthday.

The 37-year-old actress wanted to make sure her little girl Evie, whom she has with her estranged husband Channing Tatum, had the best day on Thursday (31.05.18) so arranged for a sweet tea party at her home for her and her friends to enjoy.

But it looks the brunette beauty's dogs Lulu and Meeka had the most fun as she took to her Instagram account before the festivities began to share a photograph of the pooch sat at the table with a unicorn party hat pinned to her chin.

It's not known whether Channing was there for the girly tea party as the couple - who got married in 2009 - recently announced that they'd gone their separate ways after almost a decade of marriage, but were determined to remain friends for Evie.

She said recently: ''We started out as friends, and I would say it was an instant recognition. When we met it felt like we had known each other for many years. Ultimately, no matter what Chan and I are doing, we're really great friends. I think that will never change, no matter what ... My parents split up when I was a year old, and due to life circumstances, [my mother] had to pick herself up, get a job and become a single working mom. [Moving so frequently] completely informed my life [and] personality in very positive ways. I learned social skills I don't think I would have [with] a different upbringing. In a lot of ways I am really grateful for it. I'm also very conscious and aware of it, so it's something that [explains] how I am, who I am, and probably greatly prepared me for life in Hollywood.''

And Jenna wants her little girl to grow up to be the best she can in life.

She said: ''She's like a little mirror for me. She's so willful that she kind of inspires me to get clear and more willful in my own life. If she's not running her own business, or ruling the world, I have failed as a mother.''
