Actor James Marsden is baffled by longstanding rumours suggesting he is the mystery father of January Jones' baby, dismissing the speculation as "stupid talk". The blonde beauty has kept her son Xander's paternity a secret since falling pregnant in 2011, but reports linking the two X-Men alumni have continued to circulate, much to Marsden's annoyance.
In a new interview with Playboy magazine, he says, "There's so much stupid talk out there. I think that came from somebody thinking we were both in X-Men, so it must be true."
However, Marsden admits the two stars have learned to laugh about the false baby claims: "Every time I see January, she's like, 'Hey, father of my baby.'"
Jones starred as mutant Emma Frost in 2011's movie prequel X-Men: First Class, while Marsden featured as Scott Summers and his alter ego Cyclops in the original X-Men film, which was released in 2000, and its two sequels, X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand.
The actor is already a father of three - he has two children with his estranged wife Lisa Linde, while he welcomed a boy named William Luca last December (12) following a brief fling with Brazilian model Rose Costa.
Brazilian model Rose Costa gave birth to the X-Men star's baby in Los Angeles on Friday (14Dec12).
According to People.com, the tot, a boy named William Luca, will take both his parents' last names.
Marsden already has two children with his estranged wife Lisa Linde, who filed for divorce from the actor in September, 2011 - son Jack Holden, 11, and daughter Mary James, seven.
The 39 year old dated Costa briefly after the end of his marriage.
A representative for the hunk has yet to comment on the report.
According to E! Online, James Marsden is getting ready to become a father for the third time — but the mother isn't his estranged wife.
Marsden and Lisa Linde separated in 2011 after 11 years together, and the X-Men actor reportedly began dating an as-yet-unidentified supermodel very soon after the split — and now she's expecting.
A source told E! News, "A girl he dated after he separated from his wife has told him she is four months pregnant. She is very excited to be a mom."
Marsden, who is already a father to son Jack Holden and daughter Mary James, recently appeared as a guest star on TV's 30 Rock and will next be seen in the Kirsten Dunst Bridesmaids-y comedy Bachelorette, out this September.

X-Men star James Marsden is expecting a baby with a Brazilian model, according to a new report.
The actor is said to have begun dating 24-year-old beauty Rose Costa shortly after splitting from his wife of 11 years, Lisa Linde, who is also the mother of his two children.
Now Marsden is set to become a dad again - New York Post gossip column Page Six reports Costa is pregnant.
Costa previously dated actor Chris Santos, and Marsden's ex Linde filed for divorce in September (11) citing "irreconcilable differences".
On Saturday, Russell Brand went on Twitter to complain about how he would have to cancel his show in Canada later that day because customs officials refused to let him into the country. His tweets included remarks such as, "How do you manipulate customs officials? Wasn't Hitler's father a customs officer? I'm pretty sure he was," and later added, "Tonight's Casino Rama show postponed. I'm sorry. I can't enter Canada. We must abolish the borders between our nations AND our minds." Since this wouldn't be the first time he's had problems with customs (this year Japan refused to let him in due to his criminal record) it was easy enough to believe, but it turns out none of this was true -- he was only pulling a prank on everyone. The real reason he was unable to make it to his show was because of mechanical problems with the plane. Casino Rama spokeswoman, Jenna Hunter, made a statement today to The Canadian Press, saying, "I think he's trying to be witty about the whole thing, but it really was just a plane issue, it wasn't a customs issue at all." Although I wouldn't blame them if there was a customs issue the next time he tried to visit Canada. Now that would be funny. - THR

On a happier note, Elizabeth Hurley and Shane Warne are now engaged. Apparently he popped the question while having dinner at Dunhill in St. Andrews. A rep for the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship put out a press release, stating, "Shane Warne has confirmed his engagement to actress Elizabeth Hurley after proposing at the Alfred Links Championship." Shane made it clear though that this was not made a public event and took to Twitter, explaining, "I didn't propose in front of 200 people at dinner. It was done privately and was very romantic -- if I say so myself. Ps left knee is sore!!!" Congratulations to the happy couple! - People

The actor's character, Oscar, accidentally mistakes acid for Valium and trips throughout the comedy.
And his wife, former actress Lisa Linde, was convinced getting high on mushrooms would help him ace his audition.
He says, "I've never taken hallucinogenic drugs. My wife, sorry Lisa, was trying to get me to take mushrooms before I played this role.
"She said, 'You can't get drunk. It's a whole different thing if you're on acid.' I just sort of pretend, and it either works or it doesn't."
