Britton, 44, tells People.com that the adoption process took three years, but a week ago, her hopes of becoming a mom finally came true.
Britton’s baby is named Eyob, though they gave him the nickname Yoby.
Connie tells People, “I am thanking my lucky stars every day,” noting that the first day she held him in her arms “was such a wonderful moment of completion.”
Britton adds, “I thought I was going to collapse into a puddle of tears. I was just grinning from ear to ear.”
Congratulations! Couldn’t be better news for a better person.
