Bridget’s a mama! The first pics of Ms. Jones and her baby are here


Bridget Jones fans, rejoice! Filming for the long-awaited third instalment of the film franchise is finally underway, and we're loving the on-set pics so far.

It's been over a decade since the original Bridget Jones sequel, The Edge of Reason, hit our screens, and since then our favourite anti-heroine has gone on to become a mum.

If you're wondering what to expect from the third film, Bridget Jones' Baby, these snaps from Mail Online should give you a few hints. Firstly, Mr. Darcy is still present (phew):

Secondly, there definitely seems to be a christening – but is this actually Bridget's baby? And is Mr. Darcy the father?

Thirdly, it seems Bridget has slimmed down quite a bit ten years on – either that or Renee Zellweger has refused to gain weight this time around:

The film was originally thought to be based on the third of Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones books, in which Mr. Darcy sadly doesn't feature. But instead it appears the movie will take inspiration from Ms. Fielding's newspaper columns.

Starring alongside Renee and Colin Firth is former Grey's Anatomy lead Patrick Dempsey, who has been waxing lyrical about his filming experience on Instagram.

It's thought Patrick will play a love interest for Bridget – we wonder what Mr. Darcy will have to say about that…

The film is set to be released in September 2016, but until then we'll just have to be satisfied with the above snaps.
