We still don’t know who the father of January Jones’ baby is, but when the single “Mad Men” star announced she was pregnant, many guessed that her former beau Jason Sudeikis was the dad-to-be.
However, a source opines to Us magazine that it’s unlikely the “SNL” star would not be involved if it were indeed his child: “If Jason were the dad, he’d step it up.” In fact, the source explains, the actress’s desire to start a family may have been why the relationship went south.
“She told him she wanted kids and it turned him off,” says the source. “Jason was bummed out she was on the mommy track.”
When a Washington Post reporter asked if he had any comment on the pregnancy, Jason stammered, “I’d rather — yes but no.”
Was he surprised to hear his ex was expecting? “No, I — ” the funnyman stammered. “No, I didn’t have anything [else to say].”
Divorce Drama 1
Jesse James is opening up about the epic cheating scandal that destroyed his marriage to Sandra Bullock — and made him, for a time, America’s most-loathed man.
“Everything got ripped to shreds,” the celebiker recalled to People magazine. “I was at my breaking point.”
The “Monster Garage” star, who is releasing a memoir called “American Outlaw,” says he takes “full accountability” for the split but isn’t focusing on the past. “I’m moving forward, thinking clearly and becoming a better person,” he declares. “I have started life over.”
“I think, you know, a marriage ending, all this crazy stuff,” he mused to ABC, “that was like a lesson to work on myself and fix what’s wrong with me.”
As for his Oscar-winning ex-wife, he says that Sandy saw his daughter Sunny a few times since the split, but there has been “no contact at all for several months.”
Jesse is now engaged to fellow reality star Kat Von D, whose heavily tattooed look is reminiscent of the women with whom he allegedly cheated on Sandra. He is based in Texas and tells People, “I’ve made my world pretty small. Now I can focus on what’s important: making sure [my] kids get good grades and are happy and healthy.”
And selling copies of his book, of course.
Divorce Drama 2
Speaking of celebs who have weathered a bitter divorce with accusations of infidelity … Shania Twain is opening up about the heartbreak of splitting with her husband of 14 years, Mutt Lange, after being told he was having an affair with her friend.
“I didn’t want to live,” the country star recalled to Oprah Winfrey of her 2008 ordeal. Though Mutt and alleged mistress Marie-Anne Thibaud never confirmed rumors they were having an affair, Shania actually wrote her former pal a letter pleading for her husband back:
“Why are you torturing me? Let it go, please. Find love somewhere else from someone else.”
“I know it was pathetic,” the “Come On Over” singer acknowledged. “But we all have pathetic moments. No one is above this type of low.”
Now, though, Shania feels the split was “a very positive thing,” explaining, “I needed the wake-up.”
Of course, it must have helped ease the pain that Shania found comfort in — ironically enough — Marie-Anne’s then-husband, Frederic Thiebault. In case you missed the memo, they were married in January. Who says there are no happy endings?
