January Jones missed President meeting

January Jones knows being a single parent is a "challenge" and she has to make sacrifices such as missing the chance to meet US President Barack Obama because her son was ill.

January Jones had to miss meeting President Barack Obama because her son was ill.

The 'Mad Men' actress - who raises three-year-old Xander alone - admits juggling her personal and professional life is a "challenge" and she is ready to make sacrifices when she needs to.

She said: "It's a challenge but I'm not the only mother dealing with it.

"I manage and make sacrifices.

"I was supposed to go to the Smithsonian museum to meet the US president, but I couldn't go because my kid was sick."

Despite being content with her life, the 37-year-old beauty still wants to "do better".

"I want to be happy and I want to be a good mum but I'm also a fairly ambitious person. I want to accomplish things in life. I always have this urge to want to do better."

Since beginning her career on 'Mad Men', January thinks she has become a much better person.

She told Britain's OK! magazine: "I've become a better person and becoming a mother has opened up a whole new world to me.

"I feel like I've become a better friend too.

"When you do a TV show for so long, you live in a bubble so I've learned to value real relationships. I've been blessed. I have no complaints really."
