Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner has thrown his support behind pregnant actress January Jones and is working on a solution to hide her baby belly during filming of the hit show.
The blonde beauty announced in April (11) that she will welcome a baby later this year (11), although she has yet to name the father of her unborn child.
The pregnancy news sparked rumours it could affect her role in the upcoming fifth season of Mad Men, which is due to start filming in August (11), but show creator Weiner is adamant he will do everything he can to help Jones.
He tells E! Online, "I have to do something about it, but I'm not going to tell. It could be laundry baskets (held in front of her stomach) or it could be a body double. There are a million things you can do."
Weiner also reveals he is happy for the expectant mother, as she has long wanted to start a family. He adds, "She has wanted this very badly. She's got a big heart and she's been talking about having children since I met her, which is not always common with actresses. I think she's going to be amazing. She is going to be so devoted."
The news comes amid speculation the actress is set to welcome a son after she was spotted buying blue baby clothes during a shopping trip in Los Angeles on Monday (20Jun11).
