Connie Britton: My Son Thought I Was Beyonce!


85226PCN_Britton10Now this is just too adorable. I, too, wouldn’t mind having one of my children pick up a magazine with Angelina Jolie on the cover and say, “Hey look mommy, it’s you.” Yes, I know, wishful thinking on my part.

But for Connie Britton, that’s exactly what happened when her 2-year-old son Yoby picked up a recent GQ magazine with Beyonce on the cover thinking that it was his mom. The Nashville star explains to People Magazine:

“I had one in my house and my son was looking at [them]. I said, ‘Do you see Mommy?’ He points at Beyoncé and says, ‘Mommy.'”

Connie 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. Too cute, if you ask me.

Tell us Babble readers, have you checked out Nashville on ABC yet? If you haven’t, you must. Connie has fast become one of my favorite television actresses and after only watching one episode, you’ll see why, too!
