Viola Davis & her husband are intent on raising their daughter to be a strong, independent woman - and it seems to be working!
Here's what the actor recently said:
"It's like that book, 'I like myself because I'm me. There's no one else I'd rather be. I'm starting early to instill in her a strong sense and love of self, which wasn't given to me. When she plays with the little boys who want to kiss her, she's slaps them and say, 'No!' So that's good!"
Just make sure none of the other parents see her do that, or they might get upset. Personally, we love that. The world needs as many strong women as it can get, so bravo, Viola!
They've named their daughter Genesis and the little girl has slowly but surely come to appreciate her name.
Here's what the actor said about her two-year-old little girl:
"She loves telling people her name. It's a big one because at first she didn't do that. She's 2, so now when people say, 'What is your name?' she says, 'My name is Genesis!' And she screams it! She's proud of her name!"
Sounds like a lovely little girl!
We can't wait to see you lugging her up and about town.
Great parenting, Viola!
