Channing Tatum has never revealed his daughter Everly’s face on social media – until now.

On Thursday, the “Magic Mike” star shared a rare photo of himself hugging the 8-year-old during a father-daughter trip to the beach.

“You my little are everything! You are my world and my heart,” the 41-year-old actor captioned the Instagram post.

Tatum provided a brief insight into their day in the caption, explaining that Everly was “looking at the full moon” when the photo was taken and telling him “the prophecy of the full moon mermaid.”

“Then we ran into the water and looked for her and played with glow sticks in the night water calling out to the mermaids. You said you touched a bald headed mermaid and saw a tail,” he continued.

Tatum wrapped up the post by saying that he hopes Everly will “one day” laugh when she revisits his post in the future.

Tatum shares Everly, his only child, with his ex-wife Jenna Dewan.

The couple, who met as costars while filming “Step Up” (2006), announced they were ending their nearly nine-year marriage in 2018. They finalized their divorce the following year.

In 2020, Dewan and Tatum landed on an agreement to share 50/50 custody over Everly, according to legal documents obtained by The Blast.

The agreement reportedly covered rules regarding the inclusion of Everly on Dewan and Tatum’s social media pages.

According to the documents obtained by The Blast, the exes agreed not to exploit their daughter for social media advertisements, meaning they would refrain from placing her in for-profit posts without the other party’s consent.

Though the agreement permitted each party to include Everly in photos from personal events, both Tatum and Dewan have previously chosen to only share photos in which the child’s face is fully or partially obscured.

Since the former couple’s breakup, Dewan became engaged to singer and actor Steve Kazee. They welcomed their first child together, a son named Callum Michael Rebel Kazee, in 2020.

Tatum had an on-again, off-again relationship with singer-songwriter Jessie J, but they broke up in 2020.

The “Dear John Actor,” who dedicated his 2020 children’s book “The One and Only Sparkella” to Everly, isn’t currently linked to any partners and has spoken about initially being afraid to raise a daughter on his own.

“When I became a single father, I had a lot of fear about connecting to Everly in every way that a little girl might want. I didn’t wear nail polish or know how to braid hair. But now I do both,” he told Parents magazine.

He continued: “I jumped with both feet into this magical world, and I was rewarded with a kind of love that I don’t think I would have ever been able to have otherwise.”
