Viola Davis, 56, is well-known in Hollywood as one of the most accomplished actors, but she’s also a devoted mother! The stunning woman is happily parenting her goal-oriented daughter Genesis, 11, and it has become one of her favorite aspects of her life.
In addition to teaching her daughter, the adoring mom ensures that her little girl is a part of her exciting Hollywood job by frequently taking her to events and posing for blockbuster photos on red carpets.
Viola and her husband Julius Tennon, whom she married in 2003, adopteded Genesis into their family when she was a baby. She joined Julius’ two prior partnerships’ children and immediately became a delight for the loving parents.
In a 2019 interview with PEOPLE, Viola said that her daughter has exhibited an interest in acting. She participated in the 2019 cartoon film The Angry Birds 2, but the worried mother, who is the only black actress to have won an Oscar, Emmy, and Tony Award, wants to make sure she helps her daughter with her acting path by drawing on her own experience.
Viola celebrated her 11th birthday with a Harry Potter-themed cake, which she shared on Instagram. The family stood in front of it while visiting The Sugar Factory in Los Angeles, California.
