‘Bridget Jones’s Baby’ Trailer Drops and Renee Zellweger’s Character Has a Big Pregnancy Dilemma

This Bridget’s got 99 baby problems. The new trailer for Bridget Jones’s Baby dropped on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday, March 23, and in it, Renée Zellweger‘s beloved character Bridget Jones is faced with yet another mega-dilemma: She’s pregnant and needs to know the identity of her baby daddy.

The third installment of the Bridget Jones series parts ways with author Helen Fielding‘s third book, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy, in which Mark Darcy dies. Thankfully, he’s still alive in the film franchise.

Colin Firth reprises his role in the film as the dashing Darcy, but he and Bridget are not exactly on the best of terms. In fact, one hilarious bar scene reveals that the once-adorable lovebirds are trying to get over each other, and they need copious amounts of alcohol to endure the torture of being in the same room together.

Replacing Hugh Grant‘s grimy-but-sometimes-charming Daniel Cleaver — Grant explained he opted out of the third installment — is a new love interest played by the handsome Patrick Dempsey.

That’s where things get complicated. Bridget discovers she’s pregnant — and has no idea who the baby daddy is. “Everything is completely under control,” she says in one chaotic scene. “Sort of.”

The clumsy but endearing heroine tells each man that he is the father. “There’s at least a 50 percent chance,” Bridget says in one scene, meaning it’s either Dempsey’s character’s or Firth’s.
