At the end of the day, as a parent there’s nothing better than knowing that your child knows that all the hard work you do, all the late nights you work, is for them.

Emmy winner and How to Get Away With Murder star Viola Davis has a daughter who get’s it in little Miss Genesis.

Little Genesis “hacked” her mom’s Instagram account to post the most adorable congratulatory message ever.


The caption reads, “Hacking mommy’s instagram with the help of Team JuVee!!!”

In the video, Genesis says: “I love you mommy and I hope you win another Emmy. You’re my favorite girl and I love you.”

Davis shared another photo of her daughter rocking her Neil Lane jewels. “Don’t know where she got that pose from. My baby!!!” Davis says on Instagram.

In a cover story for Variety magazine, Davis reveals some post-Emmy feelings and the deeper meaning of her historical win.

“I keep expecting to be that little girl who loses the contest,” Davis told Variety. “It’s a mixture of disbelief and joy and acceptance. It’s just beautiful.”

More than just an Emmy, Davis explains how this award speaks volumes beyond a Hollywood platform.

“What it meant for me to win the Emmy is I found it,” Davis explained. “It’s not just the award. It’s what it’s going to mean to young girls — young brown girls, especially. When they saw a physical manifestation of a dream, I felt like I had fulfilled a purpose.”

Just beautiful indeed.
