Helen Fielding, the author of the 'Bridget Jones's Diary' book trilogy, talks about the final instalment of the series 'Mad About The Boy' in an interview. She talks about Bridget's newfound motherhood, Daniel Cleaver and the death of Mark Darcy.
'I think the essential thing with Bridget and her children is it is a terrible muddle', she says on Bridget's attempt to cope with being a mother. 'She does forget them sometimes and leave them on the pavement, she does sometimes worry they'll be taken into care by the social services but essentially she loves them.' On the seductive Daniel Cleaver, Helen reveals, 'he's godfather to Bridget's children' but admits he is still the same old seductive Daniel. Talking about the loss of Mark Darcy, she stresses that 'No-one gets to Bridget's age without suffering some sort of loss. Life doesn't turn out like you expect.'
