Connie Britton recently adopted a baby boy from Ethiopia. According to People magazine, the actress returned from the country with baby Yoby after three years of trying to adopt a child from Africa. A week after her success, Britton describes her mothering role as “a wonderful moment of completion.”
“I thought I was going to collapse into a puddle of tears. I was just grinning from ear to ear,” she says of holding her son for the first time.
“I am thanking my lucky stars every day,” Britton adds.
Baby Yoby is 9-months-old, and was originally named Eyob at birth.
Aside from starring in Friday Night Lights, Britton also acts in American Horror Story.
