When news broke that January Jones was pregnant, it was kind of a shocker, but seems her Mad Men boss wasn’t so surprised.
Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner gushed about January at the Critics’ Choice Television Awards, telling E! News, “She has wanted this very badly. She’s got a big heart and she’s been talking about having children since I met her, which is not always common with actresses.”
As for his thoughts on January Jones as a mother? Weiner believes “she’s going to be amazing,” adding, “She is going to be someone who is going to be so devoted.”
While we still don’t know January Jones’ baby daddy, we do know that Jones’ growing baby bump is going to create some challenges when filming Mad Men.
Weiner didn’t have any inside scoop on how the pregnancy will be handled, but teased, “I have to do something about it, but I’m not going to tell. It could be laundry baskets or it could be a body double. There are a million things you can do.”
That sounds like he’s definitely not planning to have Betty Draper get pregnant on the series!
