Viola Davis and her actor husband Julius Tennon will be helping each other soon -- with diaper duty. "The Help" star revealed Tuesday that she and her mate are in the process of adopting a baby.

"We don't have any children but we're about to adopt a baby," Tennon told E! News at the world premiere of Davis' new film, about housekeepers who speak out for equality in the South. 

"Yes we are," Davis confirmed, "we're about to adopt a baby." They're adopting domestically, she added.

The duo have been wed since 2003, and Tennon counts two children from a previous relationship. Davis was an Academy Award nominee for her 2008 flick "Doubt."
