January Jones mystified the media in 2011 when she decided to announce that she was pregnant with her first child, but wouldn’t divulge who the father was. Declaring herself as a single mother, Jones hasn’t changed her stance on being secretive about who the biological father is of her son Xander.
The mystery involving the identity of her son’s father still remains, and it’s such a talked about thing in magazines that it has spread to Hollywood circles. X-Men star James Marsden sat down with Playboy magazine and jokingly claimed that he was the father of January Jones’ baby. Noting that the two share a sense of humor, Marsden said:
“Every time I see January, she’s like, ‘Hey, father of my baby.”
The reason that there were rumors the two had conceived Xander is due to the fact that they were both in separate X-Men films. Commenting on with the rumor mill, Marsden commented:
“There’s so much stupid talk out there. “I think that came from somebody thinking we were both in X-Men so it must be true.”
Marsden starred in X-Men, X2, and X-Men: The Last Stand as Cyclops, while January Jones starred in X-Men: First Class back in 2011.
Back when Jones announced the news, there was huge speculation that ex-boyfriend Jason Sudeikis might be the father of her unborn baby, simply because they broke up a few months prior to the announcement. Sudeikis, who seemed to be clueless at the time, stuttered when asked in May of 2011 if he had a comment concerning the identity, “I’d rather – yes but no.”
When asked about whether or not he was surprised about Jones’ pregnancy, Jason replied, “No, I – No, I didn’t have anything [else to say].”
Sudeikis went on to propose to actress Olivia Wilde and the two are now expecting their first child. As for January Jones, she still hasn’t changed her stance from 2011:
“When I was starting out, other actors advised me to keep certain things close to the vest. When you become a public figure people want to know everything about you, and then [they] pick it apart — it becomes negative. When my son asks those questions, I want him to [hear it from me]. I don’t want him to be able to Google it.”
