Viola Davis‘ daughter is definitely a member of the Beyhive.

The How to Get Away with Murder star talked to Ellen DeGeneres on Monday about her 6-year-old daughter Genesis — and her obsession with Beyoncé.

She’s got How to Get Away with Murder on lock, but Viola Davis sometimes still struggles with her real-life role of How to Be the Best Mom.

“We all at some point lock our kid in a car by accident or lose our kid in the mall for 30 seconds or more,” she adds. “I know one girl who’s a fantastic mother, [but] she lost her daughter in an aquarium for 30 minutes.”
