Connie Britton has us feeling good on this Friday.

The Friday Night time Lights star made an look on the Jan. 14 episode of Watch What Occurs Stay final night time and shared a touching story about her decision to adopt son Eyob from Ethiopia again in 2011 when he was 9 months outdated. The heartwarming dialog was prompted by host Andy Cohen studying a query from a single fan questioning if Britton had a “lightbulb second” when she realized “I can do that.”

“I had no thought what I used to be even stepping into,” Britton admitted. “So it wasn’t a lot ‘I can do that’ as a lot as I knew I needed to be a mother.”

The Promising Younger Lady actress continued, “And, in reality, each of my dad and mom had handed away inside three years, and abruptly I used to be like, ‘Oh, no. My household is not any extra. I imply, I’ve a twin sister, however that was a giant loss, shedding my dad and mom. And I wasn’t in a relationship that felt prefer it was going to be a wedding relationship.”
