Connie Britton adopts a baby boy from Ethiopia



rsz_tbd-conniebritton111711.jpgAmerican Horror Story actress Connie Britton doesn't need some kinky apparition in a gimp suit to knock her up -- she just adopted a 9-month-old boy from Ethiopia. That's way more heartwarming than the possible devil spawn joining the Harmon clan.

"I am thanking my lucky stars every day," the 44-year-old tells People about Eyob, whom Britton adopted last week after a three-year wait. "It was such a wonderful moment of completion. I thought I was going to collapse into a puddle of tears. I was just grinning from ear to ear."

Britton, who is divorced but still uses her married name instead of her maiden name Womack, calls her new baby boy Yoby. Let's hope she does a better job raising him than her character Vivien does raising that weirdo daughter Violet.
