Nashville star Connie Britton is a true Renaissance woman, a Jill of all trades.
The actress is a new United Nations ambassador and a single mother. She is also dating, but is still single.
That said, she has no romantic commitments.
"While I'm single at the moment, every once in a while, I'll be like, 'Oh yeah! I've been working and being a mom. Where's the man?!'" Britton, 47, told ABC News. "I've been able to balance that in as well. 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!"
That's totally okay, Connie! Dating without being FULL ON committed is fine!
Britton, who is a catch, is focused on her No. 1 guy -- her son Yoby, 3, who she adopted from Ethiopia in 2011.
One of her goals in raising him is making sure that he has "a very big vision of the world." The fact that mom is now a UN ambassador, focusing on poverty eradication and women's empowerment, should help her achieve that parenting goal.
"It really is something that I've always dreamed of doing, just to really be able to do productive and effective work in the world," she said about her appointment. "I was just so shocked because I thought, 'No, this isn't how life works!' Isn't it cool that sometimes it does work that way?"
How awesome is Connie Britton? We'd totally date her! She's awesome and a babe!
