Connie Britton Shares Rare Insight Into David E. Windsor Relationship



Watch: Will Connie Britton Return for White Lotus Season 3? She Says…

Connie Britton‘s romance with David E. Windsor is anything but an American horror story.

The White Lotus actress shared a glimpse into her very private relationship with the This Is Us executive producer during a Jan. 30 appearance on SiriusXM’s Radio Andy. Detailing how she first spotted David at a friend’s birthday party in November 2019, Connie described it as a moment she would “never forget.”

“I walked into his party and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I don’t know a single soul,” she recalled to host Andy Cohen. “I’m talking to my friend and he looks past me and he sees David across the room and he is like, ‘There’s someone here you have to meet.’”

Connie, 55, remembered turning around to see David, who immediately piqued her interest. However, the two ended up seated at separate tables for dinner and by the time the meal was over, Connie needed to get back home to her son Eyob, now 12, who she adopted in 2011. So, when her matchmaker friend encouraged her to stay for a little longer to be introduced to David, she told him, “‘You know what, just have him email me.’”

“David knew everybody at the party and I didn’t know anybody,” Connie added, “so I wasn’t going to walk up like a total dork box.” 

Fortunately, David did email her the next day—a move the Nashville alum thought was “very bold”—and the two ended up dating through the pandemic.


Fast forward to today, Connie said David, who was previously married and has kids of his own, has been a fixture in her son’s life.

“That’s huge to have to try to truly fill both of those roles,” she said about being a single mom. “I have an amazing man in my life now and he is definitely stepping into that more paternal role.”

In addition to This Is Us, David has previously worked on The Real O’NealsDon’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 and Galavant.

Back in January 2019, nine months before meeting David, Connie revealed that Julia Roberts once tried to play matchmaker for her as well.

“She tried to set me up with somebody,” she told Busy Philipps on E!’s Busy Tonight. “It hasn’t worked out yet, but at least mama tried, you know what I’m saying.”
