Viola Davis is a famous actress who received much acclamation from her role in “The Help.” Although the Oscar nominee has experienced much success in her career, she has found her purpose in motherhood.


Viola and her husband Tennon welcomed a baby girl to their home via domestic adoption last month, and the actress has found great fulfillment in caring for baby Genesis. As Davis explains, “It’s got to be about something bigger and larger, especially when half your life is already gone…You know, they say the meaning of life is to make a difference in the life of a child and that truly is the case. She’s given me so much.”

Genesis is the first child that Viola and Tennon have together, although Tennon has children from previous relationships.
