17 times Bridget Jones summed up your parenting abilities

Bridget Jones
Bridget's finally having a baby!

Yes, in the third instalment of our favourite romcom trilogy, our beloved hapless heroine is getting ready to welcome her first child. There's the minor problem of not knowing who the father is, but hey, nobody's pregnancy is perfect, right?

The whole daddy issue aside, we just know Bridget is going to be a brilliant parent, not least because she's been informing our personal mothering style for years.

From whipping up a (slightly off-colour) feast in the kitchen to the kinds of one-liners that would take down any babysitting group, here are 17 times our Bridge set the bar for parenting, way before her own little bundle of joy arrived...
