Actress Viola Davis shared some very big news at last night’s Beverly Hills premiere of her new film The Help: She’s adopting!
The 45-year-old Tony-winner and her husband Julius Tennon revealed to E! that they’ll soon be adding to their family.
“We don’t have any children [together], but we’re about to adopt a baby,” said Julius, who has two kids from previous relationships.
Viola confirmed the announcement, saying, “Yes, we’re about to adopt a baby,” and adding that it will be a domestic adoption.
In past interviews the actress has spoken glowingly of her husband, who she wed in 2003.
“He was a single father for 16, 17 years; he raised his children by himself, as well as pursuing a career in acting,” Viola once revealed. “So he has character. He’s a good man.”
