Bridget Jones is back, and she's the same wacky gal she's always been: vivacious yet clumsy, upbeat yet unsure about embracing singleton status again. Oh, and guess what? She's pregnant!

While we're not sure how this happens, exactly, the first trailer from the upcoming third installment in the franchise, "Bridget Jones's Baby," gives us some awkward background. (The latest movie is based on Helen Fielding's novel "Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy," which came out in 2013.)

Starting with our Bridget (Renée Zellweger) alone on her birthday with her own little cupcake (and not in a happy, embrace-the-change way like Adam Levine).
But then she's confident again, going out on the town, making gentle chitchat with her ex (her ex!) Mark Darcy (Colin Firth). Then she's face planting in some mud and being helped to her feet by McDreamy. Er, that's Jack Qwant, played by Patrick "McDreamy" Dempsey. And then... she's knocked up!
By whom? We are not to know at this stage (and nor does Bridget). The last part of the trailer is the best, however, in which she stages two separate ultrasounds with her doctor (Emma Thompson) — one for each baby daddy!

Apparently, singleton status just agrees with her — and this trailer definitely agrees with us. Check it out!
