Details: Product Description Bridget Jones, beloved Singleton and global phenomenon, is back—with a bump! This gloriously funny story tells us what happened between The Edge of Reason and Mad About the Boy, revealing how our heroine came to be a mum.   Before motherhood, before marriage, Bridget, with biological clock ticking very, very loudly, finds herself unexpectedly pregnant at the eleventh hour: a joyful time nonetheless dominated by a crucial and terribly awkward question—which of her ex-boyfriends is the father? Mark Darcy: honorable, decent, notable human rights lawyer? Or the incorrigible Daniel Cleaver: charming, witty, notorious ladies’ man? In this page-turning tale of baby-deadline panic, maternal bliss, and social, professional, technological, culinary and childbirth chaos, Bridget navigates a pregnancy full of cheesy potatoes, outlandish advice from Smug Mothers, chaos at scans and childbirth classes, high jinks and romance. Review “Our favorite hapless heroine.” — Vogue “A comic ménage à trois.” — The New York Times Book Review “I turned the pages, crying with laughter. . . . Bridget Jones is as relevant and funny today as she has always been.” —Katie Law, The Evening Standard    “Funny and poignant.” — Financial Times   “This story is filled with kindness, joy and jokes that made me laugh out loud. It’s truly life enhancing.” —Daisy Buchanan, The Pool About the Author Helen Fielding is the author of  Bridget Jones's Diary, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, and  Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy, and was part of the screenwriting team on the associated movies.  Bridget Jones's Baby: The Diaries is her sixth novel.

Oh God. Am beyond late and hung-over and everything is absolutely terrib— Oooh, goody! Telephone! “Oh, hello, darling, guess what?”—my mother. “We’ve just been at Mavis Enderbury’s Brunch Time Karaoke and guess what? Julie Enderbury’s just had her . . .” You could practically hear the screeching of tires: like she was about to say the word “fat” to a morbidly obese person. “Just had her what?” I muttered, frantically putting the remains of a slice of goats cheese log in my mouth followed by half a protein bar to ease the hangover, whilst trying to pull some sort of vaguely christening-friendly outfit from the mess all over the bed. “Nothing, darling!” she trilled. “What has Julie Enderbury just had?” I retched. “Her boobs made even more gigantic? A lithe young Brazilian?” “Oh, nothing, nothing, darling. She just had her third, but what I was really ringing to say was . . .” Grrr! Why does my mother always DO this? It’s bad enough anyway careering towards baby deadline without . . . “Why are you avoiding the subject of Julie Enderbury’s third?” I rasped, jabbing wildly at the TV remotes for some sort of escape, only to ping up an advert showing an anorexic teenage model with a baby playing with a toilet roll. “Oh, I’m not, darling,” Mum replied airily. “Anyway, look at this Angelina Jolly. She adopted that Chinese baby . . .” “I think you’ll find Maddox was Cambodian, Mother,” I said, coldly. Honestly, the way she talks about celebrities you’d think she’d just had an intimate conversation with Angelina Jolie at Mavis Enderbury’s Brunch Time Karaoke. “The point is, Angelina adopted this little baby and then she got Brad, and had all these other babies.” “I don’t think that’s why Angelina ‘got’ Brad Pitt, Mother. Having a baby is not the be all and end all of a woman’s life,” I said, struggling into an absurd floaty peach dress, which I last wore at Magda’s wedding. “That’s the spirit, darling. And some people have marvelous lives without them! Look at Wynn and Ashley Green! They went down the Nile thirty-four times! Mind you, they were a couple, so . . .” “Actually, Mum, for once in
