‘Nashville’ actress Connie Britton and her son Yoby were among those chosen to participate in the White House Easter Egg Roll this year! More than 35,000 were invited to the big event, held on Monday.
Former Friday Night Lights actress Connie Britton is redbook’s cover model for their September issue (out on newsstands September 9th). Connie, who is currently starring on the hit TV series “Nashville” and in the upcoming film “This is Where I Leave You, dishes on working moms, single motherhood, and ‘cougar’ misconceptions.
Actress Connie Britton welcomed her son Yoby three years ago and life has been a whirlwind ever since. The celeb mom was recently named as a Goodwill Ambassador for the eradication of poverty and women’s empowerment. She shares in a new interview that Yoby is already learning about respecting women and dishes on the surprising aspect of motherhood.
Connie Britton is one of my favorite moms in the celebrity world. She just seems like a very fun, sweet gal that other moms would love to hang out with during a coffee break or play date with their children. The Hollywood actress opens up this month to Ladies Home Journal magazine where she talks about motherhood and how she thought she’d never have a child on her own. Here’s what she says:
“I didn’t think I’d have a baby on my own. But there’s a lot that comes out of having a plan and then seeing that there’s another way you can go,” says Britton, who was married to college sweetheart John Britton from 1991 to 1995. “If you hold hard and fast to the plan regardless of where you’re at, then you go against the flow of your life. Even after a long, difficult day, coming home and being with Yoby just washes any stress away.”

“Nashville” star Connie Britton gushed about life as a new mom this week as she promoted her hit TV show. Connie shared her struggle with being away from her support system as she figures out life as a mom, and also shared her joy over son Yoby.
Connie gushed, “He’s pretty much the most amazing person on the planet. He really is.”
She is in awe of him, but admits that it’s a lot of hard work. “I’ve played a mom a lot and I only became a mom for real recently. It’s really hard work. Really hard.”
Being away from her friends and family for work has been tough, but Connie has adapted. “I basically went to Nashville with my new son and didn’t know a soul. I’m not there with my support system. But I do have the crew and all these actors. I’ve made amazing friends there. You really find family wherever you go.”
