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.'

“Mr. Groban, tear down this wall!”
Trust me, I’m as surprised as anybody that I’ve managed to rework a famous quote from President Ronald Reagan into an intro for a reality TV recap.
