[Caution: MAJOR Bridget Jones's Baby SPOILERS AHEAD.]

Bridget Jones is moving on with her life, and we are so here for it.

It's been 12 years since we last caught up with the hilarious and relatable antics of history's sexiest bunny. Now, as is evident by the new film's title, Bridget Jones's Baby is taking over. The new flick (out Friday, September 16) focuses on two hookups of Bridget's that (somewhat miraculously, terrifyingly, whatever) have equal possibilities of being the hookup that has impregnated her. The men in question? Beloved barrister Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) and the McDreamiest of newcomers, American entrepreneur Jack Qwant (Patrick Dempsey).

While we last saw Darcy proposing to Bridget in Edge of Reason, matters have clearly changed. Things didn't work out, because Darcy worked too much. But after an unexpected reunion at a christening, a quick and steamy affair ensues. Around the same time, Bridget meets the charming Jack at a music festival, and the rest is history.

Before we make the big reveal, we'll give you this moment to turn back. If you do not want to know who Bridget's baby daddy is, retreat. Retreat!

It's Mr. Darcy! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Now, this situation really could have gone either way. While Darcy has been a long-loved figure in Bridget's story, Jack represents improvement, progression, and excitement in the self-described SP(inster)ILF's life.

We can't say we're disappointed, though. Darcy and Bridget bring a beautiful baby boy into the world who is later seen growing up happily alongside the two.

It's a perfect ending to a story that deserved nothing less.

Bridget Jones's Baby hits theaters Friday, September 16.
