Actress Connie Britton Adopts Baby Boy

The actress Connie Britton, who currently stars in the television shows Friday Night Lights and American Horror Story, has adopted a baby boy from Ethiopia, reports:

After a three-year long adoption process, the actress’s dream of motherhood came true about a week ago, after she returned from the African country with her son Yoby — a nickname for Eyob, his given name.

“I am thanking my lucky stars every day,” Britton, 44, tells PEOPLE.

The day she first held her son in her arms was a moment the new mom will never forget.

“It was such a wonderful moment of completion,” she recalls. “I thought I was going to collapse into a puddle of tears. I was just grinning from ear to ear.”

Celebrities Mariska Hargitay, Viola Davis, and Kristin Davis also recently adopted babies.
