But who is the father?

Unfortunately, the joyful announcement of their upcoming nuptials was scuttled when an inebriated Bridget was found in a compromising position with playboy Daniel Cleaver. Five years on, both men have been married and divorced, and Bridget is still larking about with her singleton friends and sniggering at Smug Marrieds. - How does the pressure that Bridget feels to have a baby—and settle down in general—reflect broader issues affecting single women today? How does this form of communication add humor and drama throughout the story?
Characters pop in solely as set-ups and the double entendres come thick and fast. Familiarity is a wonderful thing. Characters become friends. Maybe we even feel superior in our judgement of them. Just like real-life friends, then. Still, is it possible to know too much about a fictional character? Anyway here, for now, Mark is hale and hearty and we discover that he and Bridget called off their engagement five years earlier due to yet another Daniel Cleaver-related mishap.

D aniel Cleaver may have been noticeably absent from Bridget Jones's Baby, the third film in the blockbuster rom-com franchise, but he is very much present in Helen Fielding's new book of the same title. Cleaver, Bridget Jones's former boss and lover, was said to have died between the events of the second and third films. The latter opens with his funeral, after he was presumed dead the lack of definite confirmation led to speculation that he may return for future sequels following a plane crash, where Bridget bumps into her ex, Mark Darcy. The lack of Cleaver on screen was due to the fact that Hugh Grant, who played the character in the first two films, refused to return with the rest of the cast for the third film. H e and Bridget later bump into each other at a women's literary prize ceremony, at which he is presenting an award. T he book precedes Fielding's third Bridget Jones novel, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy, in which the middle-aged Bridget jostles a relationship with Cleaver after grieving the sudden loss of her husband, Mark, while raising two children.
