Viola Davis: Adopting a Baby!

Viola Davis and her husband Julius Tennon have announced that they are in the process of adopting a baby!

The 46-year-old Academy Award-nominated actress shared the happy news with E! on the red carpet at the premiere of her new film, The Help.

Viola said that she and Julius plan on adopting domestically.

The Help, which is now in theaters, follows three women (Davis, Emma Stone, and Octavia Spencer) who form a friendship that shatters a southern town’s unspoken code of rules and behavior.

Congratulations to Viola and Julius!

    Just say it… an older black woman. It’s refreshing to see an actual older black woman who doesn’t have plastic surgery and isn’t followed by the paps.
