Celebrating her 10th birthday last year, Davis gushed on Instagram about Genesis, whom she called "our heartbeat, our love, our baby."

Davis, who is also stepmother to Tennon's two children from previous relationships, opened up to PEOPLE in 2019 about parenting, saying her love for Genesis "surpasses anything that I could want from the material world."

"I empower her to understand that she has to count it all as joy. Even her mistakes, her failures, her triumphs, what she looks like, all of it. That's all a part of her loving herself, even if none of those things change," she said at the time.
