Alongside the video, Channing explained to his followers he has been keen to forge a fighting spirit in Everly to prepare her for when she grows up.

"We love wrestling and boxing," he began. "And we keep it fun. I heard once that martial arts was only created to take the mystery out of fight. So people started to practiced it. So if ever there came a time they had to defend themselves they wouldn’t be as afraid. In my experience fear most times leads to bad decisions."

"Being calm and secure with your mind and body...Make great opportunity for good decisions. Violence is 100 per cent never the answer. But having a daughter i always want her to feel safe in her being. And god help the person that ever poke the beast inside this little angel."

Both Channing and Jenna have moved on from the end of their marriage - the "Magic Mike" star is dating British singer Jessie J and Jenna is expecting a baby with boyfriend Steve Kazee.
