New Mom January Jones: Returning to Work Was Tough

Originally posted 03/25/2012 09:40AM

About seven weeks after the birth of her son, Xander, January Jones was back to work in the role that made her both admired and pitied, the former Betty Draper, now the re-married Betty Francis, on AMC's Mad Men.

With her baby still "really little," says the actress, 34, returning to the set "was tough with the long days. But work made it really comfortable for me."

As it was, "Every season I have a little kind of first day of school nerves. The first episode I'm always finding my way back into my character's shoes. … But then after a few days, I'm able to fall pretty easily back into her, and find her voice and her body language and everything that I do for her," says Jones.

AMC's Mad Men is back Sunday after an absence of more than a year, and its maniacally intense fans are anticipating what new developments are in the pipeline at the chilled offices of 1960s ad agency Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. Mad Men is too subtle to resort to cliffhangers – people here live or die according to what account gets signed over a business lunch lubricated with drinks – but season 4 ended with everyone poised on the brink of ... something.

Something maybe good, possibly bad. Maybe neither. It's that kind of show. Ominous, but incrementally so.

Before Sunday's premiere, here's a refresher as to where the show's main characters were when we left them:

She may play an icy blonde on the Emmy-winning Mad Men, but in real-life January Jones is one red-hot mama.

Barely more than two weeks after her first child, Xander Dane Jones, was born on Sept. 13, the actress, 33, was seen out and about with him – and back in beautiful shape.

As for how her maternity might play out on the new season of the AMC hit, costar Jon Hamm, 40, told PEOPLE at this past weekend's Rape Foundation Annual Brunch, hosted by the cast of Mad Men: "I'll let you see that when you see it, but she is no longer pregnant. She has had a baby, and she's very excited and happy and healthy. Both sides are very healthy and happy, which is very sweet."
