Connie Britton Explains Adoption Decision

Connie Britton and son Yoby Britton depart from LAX

It may not have been exactly the way she envisioned starting a family, but actress Connie Britton has no regrets about her decision to adopt as a single mom.

During an appearance on The View this week, the Friday Night Lights star opened up about adopting her son Yoby last year, saying, “I lost both of my parents within three years of each other and I kind of thought, ‘What am I waiting for?’ 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.”

Calling motherhood a “wonderful and life-changing experience,” Connie adds that it’s even helped bring out her musical side!

“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,” laughed the doting mama. “I guess he likes it. He wasn’t able to defend himself because he couldn’t speak until just recently.”
