Just days ago, Universal Pictures formally announced on Twitter that Bridget Jones's Baby, the third film of the franchise based on Helen Fielding's column, had begun filming. The announcement came with promotional photo showing only the upper portion of Renée's body, showing only her shoulders wrapped in an off-white sweater engaged in a hug with an iPad. Shortly after, paparazzi found lead actress Renée Zellweger on the London set wearing a faux, large baby bump underneath a fuzzy blue coat. Bridget's second pregnancy thus far look includes the highly disputed overalls atop a flannel, accessorized with a burgundy cardigan.
Other than Patrick Dempsey's involvement as a potential love interest for Bridget, as well as Colin Firth's return, we know little of the plot, which has been purposely kept under wraps. If Zellweger's loving gaze at her stomach is any indication, it seems like things are going pretty well.
