January Jones: Being a Single Working Mom Is “Difficult”

January Jones is not afraid to admit her struggles with motherhood.

And with Mad Men making its return next week after a 17-month-long hiatus, there was no maternity leave for this new mom, who has since kept mum on who Xander's dad is.

"I was back when the baby was only 6 or 7 weeks old so it was difficult," the actress, 34, told Us Weekly about her return to the set at Mad Men's Season 5 premiere in Hollywood Wednesday. "It was difficult to be a working mom and just juggling all of that. But everyone made it work and it was great."

But luckily for both Jones and her son, 7 months, the team at Mad Men was more than willing to make things work for the first-time mom.

"They made it baby friendly for me, because I'm the first female on set to have a baby so I got to bring him," she said. "He had his own room and I was able to work around it because I was nursing."

Off-set, Jones is over-the-moon over her little man.

"He is eating solids and he is just jabbering away. He's becoming more of a little person. He is quite a charmer!" she explained of his milestones. "I love to make him laugh. He thinks I'm funny and that's always a nice feeling."

Adds the star's Mad Men cast mate Jon Hamm about the little one, "He is a lovely lad and he is as cute as a button!"
