Channing Tatum pranks daughter Everly

Thanks to chat show host Jimmy Kimmel, parents telling their kids they've eaten their Halloween goodies is now a thing.

This year, Channing Tatum decided to get in on the now infamous gag whilst guest hosting the show and pranked his four-year-old daughter, Everly.

While some kids get angry and others cry, Everly's reaction is as cute as a button and kinda makes us just want to scoop her up.

In the video shared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Magic Mike star can be seen holding out an empty trick or treat bag much to little Everly's horror.

"After your mummy went out," the former stripper can be heard saying to his daughter. "And... I'm sorry, but I ate your candy."

Everly storms away from her famous dad whilst crying, "No," and runs straight to her mum, Jenna Dewan, who is recording the whole moment.

As she clings to Jenna's leg, the tot can be heard sobbing while her parents are trying to stifle their laughter.

Jimmy Kimmel first began the somewhat mean prank six years ago, when he asked viewers to send their videos in.

It's since gone on to become one of the holiday's best loved traditions.

Channing's conscience gets the better of him quickly though, with the doting dad revealing it was all a joke to his distraught daughter.

Everly though is far from impressed with it all and decides to put her dad in his place.

"That's not funny," she says when he emerges with her stolen goodies.

Saaaaa cute.
