January Jones shows off her small bump (update: Jason Sudeikis is the dad?)


These are some newish photos of January Jones, one of several sets of candids January has managed since she announced her surprise pregnancy and impending single motherhood late Thursday. Honestly, January gets pap’d often enough – I think the paparazzi camp outside of her house for some quick shots of her walking her dog, because there are quite a lot of shots of her like that. So perhaps January hasn’t arranged these photos. Perhaps the paparazzi are just hunting her because shots of her tiny bump will sell, because there’s still so much speculation as to the baby-daddy.

You know what’s weird though? No one really has any friggin’ clue for the baby-daddy. A few sources are saying it might be her ex, Jason Sudeikis, but other than that possibility, the speculation is quiet. She’s hasn’t been photographed with anyone in a while, not even at awards shows or parties. Even I have literally no idea.

Some people also think that January’s pregnancy could be written into Mad Men – making Betty pregnant (presumably) with her new husband’s baby. A little Henry Francis! Oh, that would be a hot mess, because Betty is such a terrible mother and Henry is just starting to realize that Betty is a disaster. That potential storyline is exciting!

UPDATE: Okay, a Washington Post reporter got ahold of Jason Sudeikis over the weekend, and she asked about January and whether Jason was the daddy. Here’s what went down:

When I asked if he had any comment on the recent news about Jones, who split with Sudeikis back in January, he said, “I’d rather — yes but no.”

Was he surprised to find out she was pregnant?

“No, I —,” then he paused and stammed. “No, I didn’t have anything [else to say].” He stammered some more.and that was the extent of our conversation on the subject. Sudeikis seemed comfortable being asked about the situation, just unwilling to say too much.

[From WaPo]

Yeah, it’s probably him. But I’m not ruling out other candidates!

    Could it be Bobby Flay? (Isn’t he the chef married to the former L&O SVU ADA Cabbott, actress Stephanie March?)

    Weren’t these 2 caught together by photogs after a car accident after a ballgame a few months back?

  2. RocketMerry says:

    Cute sweater. Kinda like the bag.

  3. mln76 says:

    I doubt it’s Sudekis, if it was they would have released a joint statement. I really think whoever the father is he is a married man. Probably a director, producer, or exec of some sort.

  4. courtney says:

    who cares who the father is as long as mother and chld are healthy which is all that matters in the end. life happens when your busy making other plans. Ms Jones isn’t a huge tar and never will be Jason Gould is closer to being a huge star than January Jones is as his mom is legendary singer/actress/director Barbara Streisand

  5. brin says:

    Hi again bellaluna…I think you’re right about Bobby Flay, looks like he may have a bun in January’s oven!

  6. Jazz says:

    Perhaps it could be Adrien Brody. More than likely, it’s some unknown married producer or something.

  7. Marjalane says:

    What better path to publicity than to have endless speculation as to your baby’s father. Tacky, but effective.

  8. Roma says:

    I’m wondering when Mad Men is scheduled to start shooting? They often jump in time at the start of the season so even if she was far along, it could be done.

  9. mln76 says:

    @courtney in real life I agree with you not really my buizness & I hope the kid is healthy & no judgment on January yadda, yadda, yadda…but I am a nosy bitch and I like to gossip hence the posting on a gossip site :)

  10. Embee says:

    I’m laughing at her loose fitting clothing. I think many of us do that in the early days of pregnancy…cover up like we’re sporting something significant. I sure did!

  11. kazoo says:

    hey, just thought of something. maybe SHE doesn’t know who the father is. it’ll be like a celebrity maury, her hauling in guys for paternity tests.

  12. Bodhi says:

    Ditto Embee! If she is trying to show off her teenty bump in those clothes, it isn’t working! I can’t see anyhing out of the ordinary

  13. Patrice says:

    I’m really surprised at all of the speculation outside of obvious choice Sudeikis. He and January were together for months and if she is due in “the fall” as was announced (Sept/Oct/Nov) and she and Jason didn’t break up until Dec/Jan, then just do the simple math. I don’t think a lack of “joint statement” has anything to do with it. He is not that famous, and January has never done major press like that before about her personal life.

    More than likely, I think this is a case of January HERSELF not knowing (hence she and Sudeikis or any other potential guy not saying anything). It could very well be a case of her going out and carelessly having unprotected sex with some random right after her breakup and a baby resulting from the tight time frame (hence the silence). I love love love January as “Betty” on Mad Men, but she doesn’t exactly come off as not being flighty in interviews….

  14. dread pirate cuervo says:

    @Kazoo, that’s how I read the headline, that she doesn’t know, either.

  15. Crash2GO2 says:

    Heheh. I liked to wear snug things so people could see my little bump!

    Hi courtney. JJ may not be a ‘huge tar’ but it sure is fun to speculate about paternity nonetheless. :P

  16. mln76 says:

    Here is Sudekis’s reaction

    When asked if Sudeikis had any comment about Jones’ news, he replied, “I’d rather – yes but no.”

    Ok…so was he surprised to hear that Jones was pregnant?

    “No, I -,” then he paused and stammered. “No, I didn’t have anything [else to say].”

    The Post added that the ‘SNL’ star didn’t seem uncomfortable being asked about Jones, but he just didn’t have a real way of answering the questions.


    interesting…but I will say I think they hadn’t been together for a while before they announced their breakup as he was in NY shooting SNL and she was in LA.

  17. NancyMan says:

    I would hope that if I thought there was any chance photographers were outside my house that I would have been a little more selective in what I wore out to get a People and some Cheetoes.

  18. kayla says:

    I have no idea what Jason was actually trying to say in that WaPo thing. It made no sense.

  19. brin says:

    I hope he is the father, or at least not a married man (no harm, no foul).

  20. jc126 says:

    Just because someone doesn’t release the name, doesn’t mean they don’t know it or that it could be one of many guys. She might not feel it’s her place to mention his name since they’re not together.

  21. mln76 says:

    If it were Sudekis I think it would be easy for them to say they are having a baby etc but they aren’t currently together (see Kim Stewart & BDT) and people would move on. More than likely there is more than one candidate or the kid is clearly not Sudekis’s but the father is someone powerful enough to make him keep his mouth shut.

  22. Mrs Odie 2 says:

    How far along is she? Baby bump speculation is so hilarious. Whatever people think they see at 1-4 months is just bloating. You really don’t show until 5-6 months. Especially a first baby. Except in your boobs and often your face. I hid my pregnancy at work until almost six months.

    What is with these accidental Hollywood pregnancies? Kate Hudson, Kimberly Stewart, now this chick? Remember the pill? Oh, right, you have to stop taking it in your thirties if you smoke… Maybe that’s what’s happening.

  23. albeli says:

    Sudekis’s “statement” seems totally awkward. I don’t think he/they know who the dad is.

  24. The_Porscha says:

    That statement of Sudeikis’ doesn’t say to me “I’m the daddy.” It says to me, “We’re waiting on the test results.” Just sayin’.

  25. Mshuffleupagus says:

    ooo, bitch, you’re gonna have to grow out your peroxide.

  26. RHONYC says:

    hollywood-style ghetto fabulousness at it’s best. :lol:

  27. Maritza says:

    I bet the father is a married guy, that’s why she is not saying.

  28. Laurie says:

    Maybe she used an anonymous sperm donor?

  29. lin234 says:

    It always makes me suspicious when famous women in their 30′s -40′s get pregnant all the sudden. While I’m not saying accidents don’t happen, but the baby daddies are usually men who are super rich or famous or both. Ahem Liz Hurley, Salma Hayek, Padma Lakshmi…

    I’m guessing the mystery man may be really rich so she’ll be cashing in those child support paychecks. While she’s gotten famous, she’s been complaining about her paychecks for tv and it’s not like she’s been in any leading roles in movies.

  30. Lisa Turtle says:

    I love this gossip.

    January Jones is good for gossip! Thats why the paprazzi are camped outside her house. Last year she had that DUI/Bobby Flay affair. This year the mysterious baby.

    If I worked at In Touch, I would be writing the scoop on January’s immaculate conception as a weekly column.

    I’m not loving her casual maternity style. Moms can be hot too January, you should know this vis-a-vis the perfectly coifed Betty Hoffstadt Draper Francis.

  31. echolocate says:

    I agree with you, mln76, but I’ll add that Jason Sudeikis might also be hedging if the father is known, but is married. He might not feel it’s his place to say anything. Because if it were his, you’d think he would have a statement or something ready to say. Of course, maybe the father isn’t determined yet, as you mention.

    The other thing I thought is what if the pregnancy caused the breakup with Sudeikis? Maybe he’s a guy who’s smart enough to wear condoms? Not fail-safe, but it would reduce the likelihood the baby is his. It’s really kind of odd that she isn’t on birth control, with a lead role in a series and what appears to be an active love life.

  32. CeeCee says:

    knocked up and doesn’t know who the father is. HA! Money and fame do not equate with morals and class. Her and Kimberly Stewart can start a single mothers group together

  33. anna says:

    There was only one rumor about her and Bobby Flay and that was in in June 2010. If you think that makes him the father then you need to go back to math class.

    I’m sure she’s well aware of who the father of her baby is, but just doesn’t think it’s the media’s business, especially since the father’s not involved.

  34. dorothy says:

    Call me sentimental..but it would be nice to see just one celebrity be married and have a child. After all of these celebrities that are getting pregnant without marriage it’s been nice to see a couple get married and then PLAN to have a child. i.e.Kate Middleton, Mirah Carey….
