‘Mad Men’ star January Jones is happy single parenting her five-year-old son Xander and does not feel that he needs a stepfather as a male role model.
“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,” the actor, 38, told Red magazine in an interview.
“He doesn’t have a male person saying ‘don’t cry’ or ‘you throw like a girl’.” Jones, who has not publicly revealed the identity of Xander’s father, says she does not feel “unhappy or lonely” as a single woman. “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.”
“My younger sisters and my mom and my doula were in the room; my brother-in-law and my dad were next door. I only wanted women with me. Female energy. It was a 30-hour process but it was awesome. I’d love to do it again.”
