The Friday Night Lights star brought nine-month-old Yoby – a nickname for his given name Eyob – to the U.S. from Africa earlier this month (Nov11).
Britton began the adoption process three years ago, and she insists her hard work paid off as soon as she met her son.
She tells People.com, “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. I am thanking my lucky stars every day.”
