Viola Davis Finds Her Purpose in Motherhood

Viola Davis opens up about the joys of motherhood.

Motherhood is a beautiful time in any woman's life. Just take a look at Beyonce gushing over her pregnancy or Alicia Keys gabbing about her son Egypt, saying it's a happy time in her life. For Viola Davis, becoming a mother has meant something more -- it's her calling.

"It's got to be about something bigger and larger, especially when half your life is already gone... You know, they say the meaning of life is to make a difference in a the life of a child and that truly is the case," she says, according to Black Celebrity Kids. "She's given me so much."
