The Sex and the City actress adopted a baby girl called Gemma in 2011 and is currently appearing in Broadway's The Best Man.
In an interview with People, Davis revealed her approach to balancing motherhood with her job as an actress.
"The show is at night most of the days, so I spend all morning and all day with her then I go do the show at night," she explained.
"It's actually [a] really great schedule for a mum. I'm able to be with her and have a job, which is rare and wonderful."
Davis dedicated a performance of The Best Man to Gore Vidal last week following the writer's death.
