LIFE AFTER ADOPTING GENESIS

Despite not being biologically related, Davis' love for her daughter is boundless.  The "Fences" star and her husband, Julius Tennon, adopted Genesis as a baby in 2011.

Although Davis' husband has grown-up children of his own, their lives changed for the better since adopting Genesis. For instance, they were able to show the world the realities of being a Black family when they became cover stars of the April edition of W Magazine. 

Genesis starred alongside the couple in Regina King's emotional photo essay titled, "Black Americana: A Photo Essay on Love and Pain."

The magazine cover's essay and pictures depicted the struggles of Black families in the country, which Davis experienced growing up. As a child, the actress lived in extreme poverty. 

Despite a difficult life in the past, Davis is determined to keep Genesis grounded. The "How to Get Away with Murder" star said her number one fear was to raise an entitled child. 

Davis will portray Michelle Obama in Shomax's upcoming "The First Lady" series.
