Today In Adorbs, Connie Britton's Son Confused Her With Beyoncé

CelebritiesDirt Bag

Single mom Connie Britton and her 2-year-old son Eyob and her jumbo glasses of white whine on Friday Night Lights and her perfect HAIR that is every effervescent, shimmering color that hair can be! I cannot.

Connie Britton may be a single mom, but her son apparently thinks she also sings “Single Ladies!”
When the actress’s recent MORE cover came out around the same time as Beyoncé‘s GQ spread, Britton put 2-year-old Yoby to the test.
“I had them both in my house and my son was looking at [them]. I said, ‘Do you see Mommy?’ He points at Beyoncé and says, ‘Mommy,'” the Nashville star, 45, tells PEOPLE at the PaleyFest Saturday.
But Britton took her son’s mistake in stride, choosing to see the identity confusion as a compliment. “I was like, ‘That’s my boy,'” she jokes.

Okay, now that I’ve actually typed it out there might be some racial identity issues suggested here, as Yoby’s black and adopted, but the kid’s too young for that, right? [Bossip]

  • This would be Charlotte Church in a pink Afro wig. [Daily Mail]
