January Jones Isn’t Mothering Like Her ‘Mad Men’ Character Betty Draper

Mad Men‘ star January Jones was seen leaving the ‘Today‘ show this morning in NYC.  The single mom of Xander shared that she isn’t a cold-hearted mother like her character Betty Draper – she couldn’t be more opposite. She says that becoming a mother has made Betty even more confusing to play:

“If anything, I understand her even less. But in terms of mothering, I don’t carry anything ‘Betty’ home.”

The new season of Mad Men premieres this week and she said that filming started up when she was 8 months pregnant, but everyone was very supportive:

“It was difficult just to be [a] working mom, and juggling all that, but everyone made it work.  [The show’s creator] Matthew Weiner was great about it, the show was great about it.”

She dishes on how it’s going being a working mom:

“You just miss your child when you’re at work, but I think it’s really important to have something for yourself.  It keeps you sane and it makes you a better parent. It makes you not take it for granted.”

The proud mom shared a little Xander update:

“He’s eating solids, and jabbering away, and rolling over.  He’s becoming more of a little person. He’s quite the charmer!”
