When January Jones announced in April that she was expecting her first child, there was at least one person who wasn’t that surprised: “Mad Men” executive producer Matt Weiner.
The showrunner, who Jones has said created the part of Betty Draper especially for her, told E! that the 33-year-old actress has always wanted to be a mom.
"She has wanted this very badly," Weiner said. "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.”
Weiner has every confidence that the soon-to-be parent is “going to be amazing” at raising a little one. "She is going to be someone is going to be so devoted."
Her co-star Jon Hamm agrees, as he told CNN when the news arrived in the spring that he thinks Jones will be just fine.
“She got a lot of practice playing a terrible mother on the show so I think she's probably learned what not to do,” he joked.
