‘The Help’ Star Viola Davis Adopts A Baby


Viola Davis and her husband Julian Tennon have adopted a baby girl!

Her ‘The Help’ co-star Octavia Spencer is the one who slipped with the exciting news during a speech honoring Viola at the ELLE Women in Hollywood event. Viola (‘Eat Pray Love’, ‘Knight & Day’) took the stage and confirmed the news, sharing that they have named their baby girl Genesis. The couple had just adopted their son a few days earlier.

Genesis is the first child for Viola, and the third for her husband.

Congrats to the new parents!

Edited to add: Viola’s bundle of joy is actually a baby girl, not a boy as previously reported!
