From Friday Night Lights to sleepless nights.

But for Connie Britton, that's not a bad thing, given that the reason for the lack of shut-eye is the actress just became a new mom.

About a week ago, the American Horror Story star adopted a 9-month-old boy from Ethiopia, her rep confirms to E! News.

So what's the little fella's name?

Yoby, which is a nickname for his given name, Eyob.

"I am thanking my lucky stars every day," Britton, who endured a lengthy three-year-long adoption process, tells People. "It was such a moment of completion...I was just grinning from ear to ear."
