January Jones is "nesting".

The 'X-Men: First Class' actress is due to give birth to her first child later this year and is pleased she has had a break from working in order to prepare her house for the impending new arrival.

January - who has not disclosed the father of her baby - told Pop Sugar: "I've been enjoying a nice break.

"I've been in a nesting phase just preparing my house and stuff. I've had the luxury of a couple months off."

January recently revealed she feels "lucky" with how well her pregnancy is progressing, though she is a little disappointed she has not had any odd cravings.

The actress - who is planning to raise her baby as a single parent - said: "I feel great. I haven't had any weird physical side effects. I feel pretty lucky so far.

"Everybody is asking if I've had any odd cravings. I haven't yet. It's a bummer. I wish I had something weird to tell."

While she is planning to be a single mother, January - whose relationship with 'Saturday Night Live' star Jason Sudeikis ended earlier this year - recently revealed she would like to go out with an "interesting" guy, but admitted it was tough to find love.

She said: "I would love to find an interesting man to date but people don't seem to date so much anymore. It's more of a hanging out process.

"It's hard to find romance, the kind of love story that carries you away. I would love to have that. I'm pretty idealistic when it comes to love."
