Fourteen years down, forever to go.
To mark 14 years of love and happiness with her husband, Julius Tennon, Oscar-winner Viola Davis sent out a special tweet to celebrate their wedding anniversary.
“My life got sweeter, richer the day I met you. I love you like a big ole dog!!! Happy 14 years my love, my heart.” she wrote to caption a darling photo of the couple who renewed their vows in February 2016.
The actors wed in 2003 and adopted their daughter, Genesis, in October of 2011. They met three weeks after the How To Get Away With Murder star prayed a special prayer for love to come into her life.
“I was the loneliest woman in the world, and someone said, ‘You should just pray for a husband,” Davis told The New York Post’s Page Six.”I said I wanted a big black man from the South who looked like a football player, who already had children, who maybe had been married before Three and a half weeks later, I met my husband.”
Viola definitely got what she prayed for and then some. Happy anniversary and here’s to many, many more!
