Actress Connie Britton and her little guy Eyob arrive at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) on July 16, 2012. Yoby looks like he’s ready for an adventure with his cool socks!


Connie recently recently told Amanda De Cadenet of The Conversation that she and Eyob chose one another. “[Eyob and I] chose each other,” said Britton. “I think I’ve always known I was going to be a mother. It took me about a year to do all the paperwork for the adoption then I was on a waiting list for two years, just waiting to get a referral. One day I got a call from [the adoption agency] and they said ‘We have a referral for you,’ and then they emailed the picture of [Eyob]. It was sot of an indescribable thing because in that moment I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s my son.'”

Eyob is Connie’s first child.
