When “Mad Men” star January Jones announced that she was going to be a single mother last week, people immediately began speculating that the father was her ex-boyfriend Jason Sudeikis (they broke up in — wait for it — January).
The Washington Post chatted with Sudeikis at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Apr. 30, where the “Saturday Night Live” star didn’t exactly know how to address Jones’ pregnancy. When asked if he had any comment on the news, he said, “I’d rather — yes, but no.”
OK, moving on. Sudeikis was then asked if he was surprised to find out she was pregnant. “No, I –,” he then paused. “No, I didn’t have anything [else to say].” The Washington Post reporter notes that he seemed totally comfortable being asked about Jones’ pregnancy.
Sudeikis was far more willing to speak about his upcoming MTV Movie Awards hosting gig.
“It feels extremely close,” Sudeikis said of the June 5 ceremony. “It involves a group of writers coming up with ideas in L.A., writers and friends at ‘SNL’ coming up with ideas, everybody looking at each other’s ideas, and then trying to wrangle some talented funny, cool people.”
