Viola Davis has revealed she and her husband Julius Tennon are in the process of adopting a baby.
The Oscar-nominated actress and Dazed And Confused star Julius have been married since 2003.
While Julius already had two children when they met, this will be their first child together.
Viola, 45, told E! News at the LA premiere of The Help: "Yes, we're about to adopt a baby."
She said they were planning to adopt "domestically" from the US, but did not elaborate.
Viola has won rave reviews for her performance in the film - based on the best-selling novel The Help - playing a house maid in 1960s Mississippi.
