Mad Men's January Jones has announced that she is pregnant and intends to be a single mom. The news was issued via an exclusive statement to PEOPLE by Jones' rep on April 28, 2011. The statement read "January Jones is happy to announce that she is expecting her first child this fall. She's really looking forward to this new chapter in her life as a single mom."
Instant speculation regarding the father of Jones' baby has quickly gained momentum, with suggestions that Saturday Night Live actor, Jason Sudeikis, is possibly the father. Jones and Sudeikis split in January after dating for five months. Sudeikis attended the White House Correspondents' Dinner on April 30 and when the Washington Post posed questions about Jones' pregnancy, Sudeikis stated: "I'd rather [comment] yes, but no... No I, [pause]...No, I didn't have anything [else to say]."
In addition to growing a human, Jones will continue her role as Betty Draper on Mad Men and will appear in X-Men: First Class slated for theaters on June 3, 2011.
