Approaching 40, Bridget Jones is struggling with the trials of life, not the least of which is her break up with her love Mark Darcy. Pushing forward and working to find fulfillment in other aspects of her life seems to do wonders until her love life comes back from the dead when she meets a dashing and handsome American named Jack (Patrick Dempsey). Things couldn’t be better, until Bridget discovers that she is pregnant. Now, the befuddled mum-to-be, her loyal entourage of friends and eccentric co-workers, and her amused yet no-nonsense gynecologist, must work out if the proud father is Mark or Jack.
