January Jones thinks she was ''meant'' to be a mother.

The 'Mad Men' actress - who hasn't disclosed the identity of her six-month-old son Xander's father - is having a lot of ''fun'' raising the tot and thinks falling pregnant couldn't have happened at a better time in her life.

The 34-year-old beauty told Britain's Grazia magazine: ''I am at the right age, the right time in my life, where having him is just so much fun. I think being a mother is something I was meant to do.''

January returned to work six months after Xander's birth and admits she felt ''lucky'' to be able to bring the baby to the set of the drama series.

She said: ''I'm lucky to have a job where I can bring him to work, so I was still able to nurse him, and I could run over and Squeeze him when I missed him, which was often.''

The actress also insisted she is a very different mother to her 'Mad Men' character Betty Draper.

She said: ''I have nothing in Common with Betty when it comes to mothering.

''I am enjoying myself so much, whereas I don't think Betty sees the fun in it. she sees it as a burden and an inconvenience, she's just not good at it.''
