A recent blind item on the Internet suggests that the 'Two and a Half Men' actor might turn out to be the mystery father of the 'Mad Men' actress' first son, Xander Dane.
Ever since she announced her pregnancy in April, January Jones remains tight-lipped about the identity of her baby's father. A recent blind item run by BlindGossip, however, suggested that Ashton Kutcher, the "Mad Men" actress' ex-boyfriend who recently deals with cheating rumors, might be the mystery man.
"This married actor had a one-night stand with one of his exes, who is an actress in an acclaimed television show," read the blind item. "She wound up pregnant. The actor's wife found out about the baby, and, to no one's surprise, went completely ballistic. Both the actor and his wife tried every tactic (money, lawyers, threats to ruin her career) to convince the ex to terminate the pregnancy."
"Despite enormous pressure from all sides, the ex decided to keep the baby. The actor's marriage is now on the rocks. We're not sure how long everyone can remain tight-lipped about this one. It will be difficult to keep such a bombshell out of divorce proceedings, which will likely occur before the New Year."
When reporting on the blind item, Michael K. of Dlisted took note, "All signs point to January Jones, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore." He additionally pointed out, "The only thing that doesn't fit is the 'threats to ruin her career' part." Also having similar opinions were commenters on BlindGossip.

Another reader KatarinaJ wrote, "Hate to guess Ashton and Demi yet again for a blind but it DOES fit. Explains the breakup which would be a lot more than about infidelity alone."
January gave birth to her first child, Xander Dane Jones, on September 13, while news of Ashton's alleged affair with Sara Leal came out in late September. It was reported that the "Two and a Half Men" star slept with the 23-year-old on the day of his sixth wedding anniversary to Demi, sparking speculations that the couple are heading to splitsville.
