Connie Britton would like to find a partner. As she made her film debut in the independent comedy-drama film, The Brothers McMullen she would like to some day find a father figure for her three year old adopted son, Eyob. The Friday Night Lights actress also says that a secure relationship would be ideal, but she is not willing to put any pressure on any potential partners.
The 47-year-old star told the October issue of Redbook magazine:
“I would love to be doing this with a partner, and I want Eyob to have a father figure. 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.’ When you’re doing it on your own, you don’t have to [argue over] how you’re raising the kids.”
Another topic she has spoken about is being a working mother in Hollywood and that she does enjoy dating.
Discussing comments made by Gwyneth Paltrow in the past, who claimed mothers with regular jobs face less challenges, Connie said:
“Our hours are long, but I would never compare what I do to what anyone else does. Everybody’s working hard and doing the best they can–if you’re a mom, there’s that pressure, we all face it. I’m constantly being pulled in different directions. But that’s the thing: Moms are pulled and distracted. I would never say that’s worse for me because I’m an actor. I am actually 100 percent sure all moms feel that way.”
“I’m not in a full-time relationship right now, but I am [dating]. That’s part of the balancing act, and it’s an important part!”
