January Jones's Baby 'Had His Fingers Crossed' for Mad Men During Emmys

Posted on

January Jones‘s son Xander Dane isn’t even a week old, but the newborn is already supportive of his Mad Men mommy.

“Her baby had his fingers crossed,” the Emmy-winning TV show’s creator Matthew Weiner told reporters backstage after accepting an award Sunday night. “She told me that.”

The absence of Jones, 33 – who skipped out on the small screen’s biggest night to stay home with her little one – definitely didn’t go unnoticed by her castmates.

“We just heard from her,” Weiner said. “We had a horrible superstition that her not being here was bad for us. We miss her tonight.”

Still, Weiner and the others needn’t have worried: Mad Men was named best drama for the fourth year running.
