Bridget’s focus on single life and her career is interrupted when she finds herself pregnant, but with one hitch … she can only be fifty percent sure of the identity of her baby’s father.
After what felt like a lifetime of waiting (can be very dramatic in affairs of the Jones) yesterday I went to see Bridget Jones’ Baby. And oh my god, it was worth the wait. Set many, many years after the Edge of Reason, Baby see’s Bridget at her goal weight, at the top of her career and, once again, alone – sadly Mark Darcy has married someone that is hopefully not as awful as Natasha, and Bridget has never fully gotten over him. It is on a mission to finally move on that Bridget meets Jack, before a reunion of sorts a week later with Mark where, in true Mark and Bridget fashion, she has a profiterole in her hair and he is bumbling about divorce. These two ‘puppet shows,’ as a grown up Shaz refers to them in front of her children, result in an unplanned pregnancy… Oops.
