January Jones expects to keep her schedule clear for awhile to focus on all her attention on her precious guy in life — that guy being her six-month-old son, Xander.

“I promised myself I wouldn’t take any work after we wrapped unless it was something special,” says the blond beauty of “Mad Men” – which returned for its long-awaited fifth season on AMC last week.  “Kids are only babies for a year so I only want to be with him, and get some rest. There’ve been a lot of sleepless nights.  I went back to work quite soon after I had him,” she notes.

One would not guess she’d recently had a baby by looking at the spectacular actress.  As far as having a rigorous workout routine, she says she does not.  I fact, “I haven’t done any exercises yet.  I want to get back into yoga. I did a lot while I was pregnant, but haven’t done any since.”  She supposes her slimness has to do with “not having time to eat, and running around breast feeding.  Also, my mom’s very petite; I’ve got good genes.”

The Emmy-laden drama finished shooting for the season two months ago.  January had pink highlights put into her hair prior to new season premiere events – and fashion-following crowd took note appropriately.

“It’s fun.  I have fun.  I’m a girl.  I like to do silly things sometimes and I love to be able to experiment with things.  I wanted to be able to wake up in the morning and smile at my hair.  You know, as a mom you don’t get a lot of sleep.  I wanted to feel something to feel kind of girly and excited about.  A little retail therapy goes a long way.  Pink streaks go a long way – or, rose gold highlights.”

MEANWHILE:   January feels as if her Betty Draper Francis has been like a different character in each of the show’s seasons.  She credits creator Matthew Weiner for “taking Betty on a different journey each year.  He does that for all the characters, that’s the beauty of his writing.”
