Kristin Davis was never married
As regards marriage, it is not a secret anymore how uninterested the famous actress is in getting hitched. It was assumed once that she has been abandoned by men over and over again so she got put off with the male idea. Kristin has not out rightly come out to give the reason but is definitely happy with the life she has. She just has never been one to follow the status quo.
Gemma Rose Davis (adopted daughter)
Kristin adopted Gemma Rose in October 2011 and the whole media was crazy with news about her new child. Everyone was talking not just because of an adopted baby but because Gemma is a black girl. Seeing that she refused to be a married woman, no one knew her stance of being a mother or not until she made the big reveal with the beautiful princess.
Davis had admitted that the idea of single parenthood was going to be a really hard job but those closest to her say she is really loving and caring and if when motherhood comes, she’ll do just great. The skilled actress has proved to be a doting mother to her lovely Gemma. Waking up and spending the whole day with her daughter is what Davis regards as her greatest luxury.
