Viola Davis set to adopt a baby

Viola Davis has revealed she and her husband Julius Tennon are in the process of adopting a child.

The Help star and the Dazed And Confused actor have been married since 2003 and Julius had two children when they met, but this will be their first child together.

Viola, 45, told E! News at the Los Angeles premiere of Help: "Yes, we're about to adopt a baby."

The Oscar-nominated star of Doubt said they were planning to adopt "domestically" from the US, but did not elaborate.

Viola has won rave reviews for her performance in The Help, co-starring Emma Stone, Bryce Dallas Howard and Octavia Spencer, playing a house maid in 1960s Mississippi.
