The man who stars as Don Draper on the iconic hit Mad Men, actor Jon Hamm, has told August’s Parade magazine that he has no intention of marrying or having kids, despite his long love affaair with actress girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt.

“I don’t have the marriage chip,” Hamm told the Aug. 1 issue of Parade magazine, “and neither of us have the greatest examples of marriages in our families.”

The “Mad Men” star also doesn’t plan to become a father anytime soon.

“I like kids but I also like the option to close the door,” he said. “Becoming a parent is a whole other life, and it doesn’t stop.”

But don’t get too excited, ladies. Even though Hamm doesn’t plan to walk down the aisle or into the delivery room anytime soon, he said Westfeldt – who he’s been dating for 13 years – is a keeper.

“Jen is the love of my life, and we’ve already been together four times longer than my parents were married,” says the 39-year-old actor.
