The star of The Help dropped a little nugget of info at last night's red carpet premiere for her new film.  Actress Viola Davis is about to have a little nugget of her own.  Deets inside....

Oscar nominated actress Viola Davis revealed last night that she and husband of 8 years, Julian, are expecting a baby!  They're going the adoption route and are in the process of welcoming a new child into their home.  The proud 45-year-old mom-to-be told reporters, according to E! Online, on last night's red carpet for her new movie The Help, that the couple has decided to adopt a child "domestically" soon.  Fantastic news!  There are so many children in this country who need a good and loving home.

Its always good to open your home and heart up to those children who need it...there are so many children in foster care, some who never get adopted or get adopted by the wrong people. I was always surprised that Oprah never adopted.

I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $71,32 to buy.

Why does it matter WHERE the

Why does it matter WHERE the baby comes from. A child in need is a child in need regardless of where the child is located. people need to get over this Zenophobic "US first" attitude.

I don't think it's about an

I don't think it's about an US first attitude. There are a lot of highly publicized foreign adoptions. Recently there has been a uptick in domestic adoption publicity (Mariska Hargitay, Denise Richards, Sandra Bullock). It helps noncelebs know that you can adopt here. People think the process is soooo difficult. I think we can all agree that there are a lot of children in the US that need adoption. It's normal to take care of home first before you go in to another country thinking you're the answer for them too.

I just hope Viola Davis gets an Oscar for this role. She is too good of an actress to be playing a maid but I understand that roles for black women in Hollywood are hard to come by. Congrats on adopting a child.

Viola Davis is a good

Viola Davis is a good actress, but she is not above playing the role of a maid in this movie. This is matter of our history. The maids, butlers, and drivers for white people paved the way for us. We stand on their shoulders with our good jobs and degrees. We must not be ashamed to tell their stories or play their roles in films.

You have perfectly presented

You have perfectly presented an argument against the misguided furor over The Help. Thank you! People really need to stop hating on that movie, in which Viola Davis delivers an excellent performance. To reiterate your point, all respect is due to those who endured jobs that were far from first choices but enabled many of their kids and other people's to have more comfortable occupations and lives in general.

Wikipedia says she was born in 1965, which would make her 45 going on 46. All is forgiven though for thinking her 35----you know black don't crack! Love her! She's such a classy beauty!!!

I was using reverse scarcasm

I was using reverse scarcasm when I said the should adapt a white child. Base on the fact that all these white celebrities are adapting black babies. Dont be offended I was trying to be humerous. They should adapt a beautiful black baby.

Good-looking couple. They should adapt a white baby. I'm sure there is some disadvantaged poor white child that needs a loving well to do family to adapt them and enrich their life. Good luck and congrats.
Daniel from the 'D''s picture

why would you say a white

why would you say a white baby, i am more sure that there are more disadvantaged black children in this country who will be picked last to be adopted because of the color of their skin. most people who adopt black children as the "trend" adopt black children from overseas. Congrats nonetheless but i found this comment offensive.

PRAISE JESUS FOR JESUS!!!! I

PRAISE JESUS FOR JESUS!!!! I can't express how happy I am to hear this... adopting kids from other countries is good also, but it just seemed like it became a "trend" and the overwhelming number of children who need homes in OUR COUNTRY (the US) was overlooked. I really hope that this sheds light to adoption in this country. Lord knows we need it... Congrats Viola!!!!
Anonymous's picture

Congratulations to them. I

Congratulations to them. I can see both sides of the argument when it comes to adopting children at home and abroad. Yes, there are plenty of children stateside who need good homes. On the other side, though, children in other countries often don't have the chance of making it to even double digit birthdays due to starvation, disease, abuse, etc. Being raised as a ward of the state isn't the most scenario by any means, but at least they have the chance to grow up and make something of themselves.

That wonderful! I'm so glad to hear that an actress and family are planning to adopt a child from the US! Not some damn foreign country. There are children here that need good homes too! And I guarantee you she will adopt a black child! Not an asian or a child of a totally different decent than her own! You go Viola! my god bless you forever!

I LOVE YBF! YBF goes HARD! I

I LOVE YBF! YBF goes HARD! I will continue to tell people this is the BEST BLOG! Thank you for reporting on REAL TALENT. A beautiful MARRIED COUPLE in HOLLYWOOD about to ADOPT. Nothing is more beautiful. I will take Denzel and Viola over Will and Jada any day. It is very possible to stay true to who you are and still do well in Hollywood. Denzel and Viola are not talking Scientology, open marriages or any of that nonsense! Denzel has NORMAL children and these people stay true to who they are. When you are raised well and grounded there is nothing you can't do! LOVE IT!!!!!

Here you go again! You

Here you go again! You started off fine and should've stopped with congratulating Viola and her husband. But no, you managed to condemn someone you don't like. What the hell does this post have to do with Will & Jada...or Denzel for that matter??? Someone just told you about this annoying habit of yours in an earlier post. Can't you say something positive JUST ONCE without bringing in some negativity??
