Viola Davis just gave herself the most meaningful gift for her 55th birthday.

The How to Get Away With Murder actress revealed on Twitter Tuesday that she purchased the house in which she was born.

“The above is the house where I was born August 11, 1965,” she wrote alongside a photo of the home. “It is the birthplace of my story. Today on my 55th year of life….I own it….all of it.”

It is unclear just how long Davis lived at this location during her childhood.

Davis, who won an Oscar for Fences in 2017, also included a “Cherokee Birth Blessing” in her post: “May you live long enough to know why you were born.”
