When January Jones got knocked up eons ago with a “mystery” baby, nobody knew who the father was. And you sure as shit weren’t going to find out from January Jones herself, because she wasn’t interested in telling (at least not right now). January still doesn’t want to talk about who the father of her 5-year-old son Xander Jones is, but she will talk about how she isn’t holding auditions for Xander’s new dad.
January told Red magazine that Xander Jones might not have a full-time daddy in his life, but he’s doing just fine in the male role model department.
“Xander has a lot of bro time with the neighbor dads and my dad, who is super young. It’s good to have strong women around a man. To teach him to respect women. He doesn’t have a male person in his life saying ‘don’t cry’ or ‘you throw like a girl’. All those shitty things dads accidentally do.”
It’s not just finding a dad for her son she’s not worried about. January also says she’s doing fine without a dude in her life. Xander doesn’t need a daddy and January doesn’t need a guy shivering next to her in bed.
“Something else would suffer if a relationship came along. Yes, I’m willing to make that sacrifice for the right relationship – I just don’t feel I need a partner. Do I want one? Maybe. But I don’t feel unhappy or lonely. It would have to be someone so amazing that I would want to make room. Someone who would contribute to my happiness and not take away from it. I realize I have very high expectations and will probably have to compromise – but my life is so full. It’s not like, ‘Aww, I wish I had a man.’ After I had Xander, I went on a couple of dates and I was like, ‘I’d rather be at home sleeping, or watching TV or hanging out with my kid.'”
I think we can all relate to being on a dud of a date and wanting to be at home sleeping or watching TV. But hanging out with your kid? I know people with kids, and there are times when I’ve seen them hanging out with their kids but you can tell they’d rather be watching a ShamWow infomercial. Maybe Xander is just that interesting. Wait a second. Interesting? Wait a second – that must mean his father is…The Most Interesting Man in the World! That pairing makes sense. Dos Equis does taste best when it’s close to freezing cold.
