"American Horror Story" star Connie Britton is a new mom!
According to PEOPLE, the 44-year old actress -- who earned two Emmy nominations for her work on "Friday Night Lights" -- adopted a 9-month-old boy from Ethiopia following a three-year adoption process.
She returned from Africa about a week ago with her new son Yoby, which is a nickname for his given name, Eyob.
"I am thanking my lucky stars every day," she said.
And what about that first time mom and child were together? "It was such a wonderful moment of completion," she said. "I thought I was going to collapse into a puddle of tears. I was just grinning from ear to ear."
