January Jones is a single mother and it suits her just fine.

Mad Men star January Jones is raising her son solo and it suits her just fine.

The 39-year-old – who has always kept the identity of her five-year-old son’s father a secret – is not looking for a replacement.

This one goes out to us my son.. 5yrs ago today I became whole because you came into this world.

Instead, the actress likes her son, Xander, to be surrounded by strong women, her friends and family.

“Maybe I should get a manny soon,” she told Red.

“But Xander has a lot of bro time with the neighbour dads and my dad, who is super young.”

“It’s good to have strong women around a man,” she added.

“To teach him to respect women. He doesn’t have a male person in his life saying ‘don’t cry’ or ‘you throw like a girl’. All those shitty things dads accidentally do.”

Jones is raising her son, away from paparazzi, in the Californian Topanga Canyon.

“People want to set me up all the time and I’m like, ‘No way.’ If I meet someone and we go out, then fine, but I’m not going to go look,” she said.

The star says her full life would “suffer” if a relationship came along.

“I’m willing to make that sacrifice for the right relationship – 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. I realise I have very high expectations and will probably have to compromise – but my life is so full. It’s not like, ‘Aww, I wish I had a man.’

“After I had Xander, I went on a couple of dates and I was like, ‘I’d rather be at home sleeping, or watching TV or hanging out with my kid.’”
