The Magic Mike star took to Instagram.com to post a picture of his two-year-old daughter, Everly, standing next to Heather.

"Girl and her goat," he wrote on the social media site. "RIP Heather. You had a d**n good long run sweets."

The Tatums, who own a farm, also look after a horse the actor rescued last year.

"Meet Smoke, my rescue horse," he wrote at the time. "He loves beer! We're meant to be (to be clear he just loves the smell)."

The family seems to have had its fair share of tears lately, as Channing admitted to New York magazine he has made Everly cry on a number of occasions while practicing his singing voice.

Channing Tatum posted this shot of his daughter Everly, when she was just a few days old, with his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum.

The 35-year-old plays an actor working on a sailor musical in upcoming movie Hail, Caesar!, which is directed by the Coen Brothers and pushed him out of his comfort zone.

“This was the first time I've ever sung in front of anyone,” he admitted. “I've sung to my daughter, and she cried every time. No, I've never been a singer. I'm hoping and praying that with all, like, the magical tools that they have (in the recording studio) it's going to sound decent."

Despite having a dancing background and starring in movie Step Up, Channing had to go on an intensive tap dance training programme for the movie, and admits it was just as tough as the singing.

“(Choreographer) Chris (Gattelli) kept telling me, 'I'm not dumbing this down just because you've never tapped. We're going to make this on a level that is legit, and all tappers around the world will be like, 'Okay, that was sincere, that wasn't a joke,'" Channing added.
