It's no secret that Renee Zellweger's title heroine has a little one on the way in the upcoming flick "Bridget Jones's Baby" — but it's less clear who the father is.
While fans of the franchise might assume the baby's dad is Mark Darcy (Colin Firth), Bridget's beau from the first two films, the addition of Patrick Dempsey to the third installment's cast complicates matters.
And new photos from the movie's set that show Zellweger being carried toward a hospital by both leading men don't clarify the premise either, though we're certainly excited to see them anyway.
Dempsey is seen grabbing Zellweger's legs, while Firth holds her top half in the images, which also reveal Bridget's prominent baby bump.
Filming on the much-anticipated movie, the follow-up to 2001's "Bridget Jones's Diary" and 2004's "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason," began in the U.K. on Oct. 2. The film, set for release in September 2016, will take place between "Edge of Reason" and the third book in Helen Fielding's series, "Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy."
