Bridget Jones is having a baby and we don’t know if Darcy’s the dad
Bridget Jones is back, still single, and now she's about to have a baby in the third installment in the series, Bridget Jones's Baby. Unfortunately for shippers of the Jones-Darcy romance, it seems she'll be raising the baby sans Mr. Darcy — at least from the first official trailer. The trailer picks up with an implosion of Jones' (Renée Zellweger) marriage to Mark Darcy (Colin Firth). Thankfully, things pick up with a new love interest, the ageless Patrick Dempsey.
At least we get to see our girl in a wedding dress — but what happened to Mr. Darcy? And, um, who exactly is the father of her baby?
The trailer makes it clear that Jones has no clue whether Darcy or Patrick Dempsey's character is her future baby daddy.
And option two:
The good news is that both dads are pretty decent, in our opinion. According to the Daily Mail, three different endings have been filmed, so there's no chance of learning who the father is. "It's kind of brilliant. None of the cast knows who fathered Bridget's baby or who she'll choose as her beau. The plan is to keep us all in the dark, right up to the premiere," Zellweger told the Sunday Express.
The movie hits theaters on Sept. 16, 2016. We'll just have to try to hack into her diary before then to try to find out.
