    Default Connie Britton (FNL and American Horror Story actress) Adopts a Baby Boy

    Connie Britton Adopts a Baby Boy

    For years, Connie Britton has been hard at work on her acclaimed show Friday Night Lights and most recently on the new hit American Horror Story.

    But the actress, 44, has just been cast in her most rewarding role yet: Mom. She's adopted a 9-month-old baby boy from Ethiopia, Britton tells PEOPLE exclusively.

    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 something the new mom will never forget.

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

    Connie Britton: Why I Adopted As a Single Mom

    Connie Britton always knew she wanted to have a family — and she wasn’t about to let her single status stand in her way.

    “I lost both of my parents within three years of each other and I kind of thought, ‘What am I waiting for?’” the Nashville star said during The View on Monday.

    “The man will come and if I want to have my own kids I can do that, but I [knew] this was something I [wanted] to do.”

    And after shining light on Africa’s orphan crisis, it didn’t take long for Britton, 45, to decide where she would find her first child. “I was going to do a documentary about Ethiopian orphans and spent a lot of time in orphanages there,” she shares.

    “It was something I knew I always wanted to do — adopt from there.”

    In 2011 the actress welcomed home Yoby – a “wonderful and life-changing experience,” Britton says — and, from the start, baby boy has been busy motivating his mama in ways she never imagined.

    “It is really true, I sing to him all the time. Poor thing practically never hears me just say a straight word. I sing everything like we’re in a musical,” she jokes. “I guess he likes it. He wasn’t able to defend himself because he couldn’t speak until just recently.”

    So when she was offered the role as country superstar Rayna James on the hit show Nashville, Britton didn’t think twice about belting out her voice. “When this came up, I thought to myself, ‘You know, I sound pretty good singing with Yoby. I’m sure I can pull it off.’ Not smart!” she says with a laugh.

    Congrats to her. I hope this is genuine and not a publicity ploy. Adopting African babies seems to be the latest trend so forgive my sarcasm.
