We love Jon Hamm. We loved him as Don Draper in Mad Men, and we loved when he showed up and brought the funny in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. When he announced his separation, we really felt for him — and when he revealed his struggles with alcohol, we admired him for bringing such serious issues to light. Really, Jon Hamm is just a regular person with a ton of talent, and an incredible sense of humor. So when he talked about how growing up without a mother has affected him, we appreciated his wisdom on the matter.

Since not everyone can have the white picket fence and perfectly clean household growing up with two loving and present parents, we admire Jon Hamm for representing a lot of us out there who have grown up under similar circumstances.

Very, very sweet. I think many of us are lucky to have motherly figures in women who aren’t necessarily our moms.

We’re loving Jon Hamm’s fresh perspective, and we’re so glad he opened up! No matter what, there’s a lot of love in his life — and that’s what’s most important.
