January Jones is known for portraying "Mad Men" mom Betty Draper (now Francis) on AMC, and now she’s ready for the real thing: CNN has confirmed that the actress is expecting.
"January Jones is happy to announce that she is expecting her first child this Fall,” a rep for the 33-year-old star said in a statement.
Jon Hamm told CNN that he's thrilled for his "Mad Men" co-star, and says that playing such a conflicted character has given her all the lessons in the world on how not to parent.
"I'm very, very excited for her and very happy,” Hamm said. “And I think she's going to be a good mom. She got a lot of practice playing a terrible mother on the show so I think she's probably learned what not to do."
Jones didn’t provide other details about her pregnancy, but a source close to the actress did tell People that she’s “really looking forward to this new chapter in her life as a single mom.”
The actress can next be seen in “X-Men: First Class” when it opens on June 3.
