Connie Britton played a mom to such Emmy-nominated perfection on Friday Night Lights it only seems cosmically fitting that she finally has a little one to call her own. Britton announced in November that she adopted a 9-month-old baby boy named Yoby, short for his given name of Eyob, from Ethopia. The American Horror Story actress says the adoption process took three long years, but the first time she hugged her son she knew it was worth the wait. “It was such a wonderful moment of completion," Britton told People of that first embrace. "I thought I was going to collapse into a puddle of tears. I was just grinning from ear to ear." (So are we!) It appears she remains on cloud nine, sweetly telling the magazine that she is “thanking my lucky stars everyday.”
