We all know that the latest installment in the life and times of Bridget Jones is hitting the screen later this month. But did you know Knopf is releasing a book by Helen Fielding to go along with the movie?
Here’s a peak at the cover:
Bridget Jones, beloved Singleton and global phenomenon, is back with a bump in Bridget Jones’s Baby: The Diaries.
As Bridget careers towards baby-deadline, a series of classic Bridget Jones moments finally leads her into pregnancy—but just not quite as intended. It’s a pregnancy full of cheesy potatoes, outlandish advice from Drunken Singletons and Smug Mothers, chaos at scans and childbirth classes, high jinks and romance, joy and despair—but all of it dominated by the terribly awkward question: Who’s the father?
According to the publisher, Bridget Jones’s Baby: The Diaries is the third book in the four-book series and is the bridge (ha! pun intended) between Bridget Jones: Edge of Reason and Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy and follows the original thread created by Fielding in her column published in The Independent (columns never before seen in the US).
Bridget Jones’s Baby, starring Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, and Patrick Dempsey, arrives in theaters September 16. While the movie introduces a new love interest in the Dempsey character, the book brings back fan favorites Mark Darcy and Daniel Cleaver.
