As if Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan Tatum didn't already provide us with the ultimate relationship goals, the Magic Mike hunk took it to a whole new level this Mother's Day with the cutest post.

Channing's Instagram from Sunday stood out from the slew of other celebrity Mother's Day messages with its simplicity and, most importantly, the beautiful note the father of one penned alongside it. The post shows Channing cradling a black-and-white Polaroid in his palm that features wife Jenna and their baby daughter, Everly, dozing off during a candid moment. The photo of Jenna, taken just days after she gave birth, is apparently one of Channing's personal favorites.

I took this just days after jenna and I (mostly jenna) brought our little girl into the world. I've taken many like it over the past 3 years but this is one of my favorites. She was so tired. Haha. But she has such deep strength and other worldly grace. Watching her in those first days transform into a mother was life changing. She was every bit the beautiful, sexy, funny, flawed creature I fell in love with. But the prism turned and showed a whole new light that I had no idea existed, the light of a mothers love. Thank you for that baby. Saw this quote today --" The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother. Theodore Hesburgh" there are a lot of important things in being a father. Who knows what the most important thing is? All I know is that in my case this is pretty high on my list. Love you cake!

While Channing's message was extra cute, he definitely had some competition from 2-year-old daughter Everly, who surprised her mom with an adorable coffee mug, art, flowers, and a sweet card "to the best mommy out there," Jenna, 35, revealed on Snapchat. She also took to the platform to share a selfie of herself with Everly with the words, "I love this little monkey so much!!!" and "Happy Mother's Day."
