Nashville actress Connie Britton is sharing her unique perspective on single motherhood, having adopted son Yoby from Ethiopia in 2011. The 47-year-old actress opens up to Redbook about being a parent on her own.
"I would love to be doing this with a partner, and I want Yoby to have a father figure," she tells the mag. "But I also know that putting that kind of pressure on myself or on a relationship would be disastrous. It’s funny – my married friends tell me all the time, 'What you have is so much easier.' When you’re doing it on your own, you don't have to [argue over] how you're raising the kids."
Another celebrity mom, Gwyneth Paltrow, recently made some controversial comments about being a working mom in Hollywood, saying that moms who work a 9 to 5 job have it easier than actresses. Does Connie agree with that characterization?
Connie says, "Our hours are long, but I would never compare what I do to what anyone else does. Everybody's working hard and doing the best they can – if you’re a mom, there's that pressure, we all face it. I'm constantly being pulled in different directions. But that's the thing: Moms are pulled and distracted. I would never say that's worse for me because I'm an actor. I am actually 100% sure all moms feel that way."
Adding on to her workload, Connie told Redbook that she is moving to Nashville in real life and will be learning how to sing "Grand Ole Opry--style." The Opry is a legendary Nashville theater and is known for hosting some of country's most notable stars such as Dolly Parton, Garth Brooks, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton and Carrie Underwood.
Looking great in her 40s, Connie told ET about her biggest beauty secret in the video below.
