Colin Firth and Patrick Dempsey Face Off in ‘Bridget Jones’s Baby’ Trailer

Renee Zellweger is not sure who the father of her child is in the new trailer for “Bridget Jones’s Baby.”

The story involves her hooking up again with her ex — Colin Firth’s Mark Darcy character — shortly after becoming involved with Jack, an American played by Patrick Dempsey. Then she becomes pregnant.

“I can’t go back and keep on making the same mistakes when I can make new ones,” she writes in her diary. Emma Thompson, portraying her OBGYN, tells her to try to figure out which man is the father — “It’s like the final of the ‘X-Factor'” — but each man still believes it’s him by the time that they carry an about-to-deliver Bridget into the hospital.
