Jon Hamm: "I'd Be a Terrible Father!"

Posted Sunday March 25, 2012 6:32 PM GMT

Making a surprising announcement, Jon Hamm has revealed that there will likely be no children in his future.

Recently, the "Mad Men" hunk admitted to Us Weekly, "I'd be a terrible father!" but he's gotten a taste of what it would take while playing Don Draper, a father of three who bounces between being devoted to his children to not even being around.

Although Hamm called his on-screen son "cute as a button," he still doesn't think he has what it takes to be a parent, saying, "I see my friends who have children and I'm like, 'Dude, how are you even upright, much less here at work at 6 a.m.?'"

The 41-year-old actor co-starred in "Friends With Kids" with his girlfriend of 14 years, Jennifer Westfeldt, and - in an interview with the New York Times - she also talked about the absence of children in her life.

"I've thought about this a lot lately. I never thought I'd be this age and not have kids," Westfeldt confessed. "But my life has also gone in a million ways I never anticipated. I kept feeling like I'd wake up with absolute clarity, and I haven't. And we have a pretty great life together. The chance that we'll regret it doesn't seem like a compelling enough reason to do it. I may wake up tomorrow with that lighting bolt, and I'll have to scramble to make it happen."
