Jon Hamm: I'd Be a Terrible Father!

While everyone in Hollywood is getting knocked up (Spring Fever?) Jon Hamm is the first to say he’s not gonna be anyone’s baby daddy anytime soon.

Jon Hamm’s character on Mad Men may be a pretty crappy dad (exhibit A: Gets drunk at kids birthday party, cheats on their mom repeatedly, gives them a dirty Manhattan and calls it juice, probably) but in real life, the dapper Jon Hamm doesn’t think he’s cut out for parenting.

“I’d be a terrible father!” Hamm admits.

Hamm has been with his partner Jennifer Westfeldt for 14 years and explains, “I see my friends who have children and I’m like, ‘Dude, how are you even upright, much less here at work at 6 a.m.?”

Jon Hamm’s a celebrity, don’t they hire several nannies, a chef, a baby-sitter, and heck, probably a dialect coach for their kids? I don’t have kids, but it seems like being famous and having kids is the way to go.

However, Jon Hamm loves January Jones’ six-month-old son Xander.

“Xander’s cute as a button!” says Hamm.

So anyways, Jon Hamm isn’t putting his insane genetics to good use, aka procreating so his future offspring can enjoy their dads perfectly chiseled facial features.

His girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt feels the same way, NOT that her man wouldn’t be a good dad, just that they don’t have baby fever like the rest of Hollywood.

"I've thought about this a lot lately. I never thought I'd be this age and not have kids,” says Westfeldt, “But my life has also gone in a million ways I never anticipated. I kept feeling like I'd wake up with absolute clarity, and I haven't. And we have a pretty great life together. The chance that we'll regret it doesn't seem like a compelling enough reason to do it. I may wake up tomorrow with that lighting bolt, and I'll have to scramble to make it happen."
