It really is." She is a mother now herself, and Hayden had to see herself in that position watching it all go down.

Connie Britton even said that it was hard to move on from the show. She was actually very close with the other actors and actresses on the show. Connie Britton just made the decision that was best for her and that was moving on to be home more and work on other projects that were important to her.
