How sweet! When Viola Davis asked her daughter Genesis what she wanted to be for Halloween, she chose someone awfully familiar: Her momma! See the adorable mini-me pic above!
Thanks to her historic Emmys win in September, the world knows how amazing Viola Davis, 50, is. Apparently, so does her daughter, Genesis! Instead of picking a Disney princess or a ballerina for her Halloween costume, 4-year-old Genesis chose to be a superhero. But it’s not exactly the superhero you’d expect — Genesis wanted to be her mom!
Viola posted the precious pic of Genesis on her Instagram on Halloween to share just how perfect her costume was. Dressed in a sleeveless white dress just like the one Viola wore when she won her Emmy, Genesis did her hair to look even more like her mommy. She even has her own fake Emmy! As she grins from ear to ear, Genesis is clearly excited to be her mom. And if you think Viola had to do any convincing to get her daughter to be her mommy for Halloween, think again! “So…..the Elsa costume? Didn’t work for her. The Pirate? A no go. So she finally said, ‘I just want to be YOU mommy’! So… uhh….this is ME,” Viola captioned the pic. Can you say adorable?!
Even though she’s only 4, Genesis is clearly one smart cookie. After Viola won her Best Actress Emmy for her role on How To Get Away With Murder, practically everyone wanted to be her! She used her win as a chance to speak out about opportunity and advocate for women of color in her acceptance speech. No wonder little Genesis wanted to be her mom — she’s one incredible woman!
Genesis wasn’t alone in having an amazing costume this year. In fact, tons of other celeb kids had some pretty epic outfits too! Kourtney Kardashian and her kids were a whole family of superheroes, Chris Brown‘s daughter, Royalty, was a perfect ninja turtle, and North West was Frozen‘s Elsa! But c’mon, how can you beat a kid that wants to be her momma for Halloween? Genesis, you have our vote for Best Kids Costume!
