Nashville kicks off the new season tonight on CMT. Ahead of the premiere, its star, Hayden Panettiere, is opening up about her battle with post partum depression after the birth of her daughter Kaya, 2, and more.
“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.”
