When ESSENCE’s September digital cover star Viola Davis isn’t busy kicking butt in movies like The Woman King, she is being a mother to her 12-year-old daughter, Genesis Tennon. Her pre-teen is blossoming beautifully and popped out together with her mom to the worldwide premiere of the Oscar winner’s latest film. The 2 ladies were also accompanied by Julius Tennon, Viola’s husband and Genesis’s father. 

The mother-daughter duo looked stunning rocking vibrant gowns. Davis took to Instagram to thank her team for the glow they gave her on the premiere, which took place on the Toronto International Film Festival.

“Thanks to my amazing glam squad for helping me shine so brightly on the #TheWomanKing World Premiere at @TIFF_NET! Thanks to our wonderful forged, director, and producers, in addition to family and friends, for showing up and showing out in Toronto! ????????????????,” she wrote on Instagram.

Davis, 57, is sharing more of her daughter nowadays, and we’re welcoming it with open arms. She posted a throwback image of her family of three in late August and captioned it, “My loves.” 

In July, the month prior, she shared rare skilled images of her daughter because the pre-teen marked her twelfth birthday. The photographs were accompanied by a warm birthday tribute from Davis.

“Completely satisfied birthday to my HEART!!!! My LOVE!!!!!! MY EVERYTHING!!!! My G!! Completely satisfied twelfth birthday!!!!” she wrote. “I like you beyond anything I could imagine ❤❤❤❤”

Genesis was adopted by the star and Tennon in 2011. In 2019, Davis spoke to PEOPLE about her love for her daughter. 

“It surpasses anything that I could want from the fabric world. I empower her to grasp that she has to count all of it as joy. Even her mistakes, her failures, her triumphs, what she looks like, all of it,” she said. “That’s all a component of her loving herself, even when none of those things change.”
