When January Jones announced her pregnancy last week, the single mom-to-be was tight-lipped about the identity of her baby's father. Her rep made it clear that the actress wasn't seeing anyone seriously, saying only that the Mad Men star was "really looking forward to this new chapter in her life as a single mom."

January has been flying solo since her split from SNL beau Jason Sudeikis last, well, January, so it's only natural that the rising funnyman would be a prime suspect. But when the Washington Post approached Sudeikis at the White House Press Coorespondents' dinner on Sunday, the typically verbose comedian had a hard time finding the right words.

"I'd rather—yes but no," Sudeikis said when asked for a comment on the news.
When asked if he was surprised to hear about the baby, The Post says Sudeikis struggled again.
"No, I—," the actor said. He then reportedly paused and stammered before adding "No, I didn't have anything [else to say]."
If Sudeikis knows more than he's saying—which is essentially nothing—then good for him for respecting his ex's privacy. But since he seems to be the prime suspect in Jones' pregnancy-whodunnit, you would think he would have a sentence or two prepared for the press.

Sudeikis and Jones have been splitsville for months, but an inside-source told People that their break-up was more distance-related than anything else, and that the couple could very well get back together. They may live on different coasts, but who knows if the good-looking and reportedly still-single pair find a way to meet up during their trans-continental trips. Only time and January will tell who the father is, but lets hope Sudeikis finds the words to congratulate his ex when the big day comes! If not, there's always Hallmark.
