Channing Tatum appeared on Running Wild With Bear Grylls Tuesday, and between eating worms and standing in the frigid waters of Norway, the actor opened up about his fears as a single father.

Tatum and Jenna Dewan separated in April 2018, after eight years of marriage. However, they just finalized their divorce last month. The couple has a 6-year-old daughter named Everly.

When asked about being a single father to a daughter, Tatum admitted,“I never in a million years thought that I would be a single dad now ... It's scary, to be completely honest.”

Tatum said that when he first learned he was having a daughter, he watched tutorial videos on hair braiding, so he could be prepared. He also discussed some of the difficulties of raising a human who does not have shared experiences.

“It's a lot of pressure, like, all the female stuff,” said Tatum. “I'm gonna have a really hard time, probably, having a dialogue with her  because I just don't have that.”

Despite not being able to fully relate to his daughter, Tatum is remains positive. He said, “I can't talk to her about that but, you know, we'll find our way through it.”

Running Wild With Bear Grylls airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on National Geographic.
