Exclusive First Look: “Expecting” Explores What Happens When Your BFF Decides To Birth Your Baby
First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage, as the nursery rhyme goes. Eh, except when it doesn’t. The road to parenthood is a bumpy one for many, and as a 34-year-old woman with no man and babies on the brain, I’m instantly drawn to any film that depicts the non-traditional avenues some couples and singles take towards their dream of having a child. That’s why I’m psyched to see the upcoming film “Expecting,” starring Radha Mitchell and Michelle Monaghan, about a woman named Andie (Monaghan) who finds herself unexpectedly pregnant after a one-night stand and decides to have the baby and give it to her reproductively challenged BFF Lizzie. And we’re lucky enough to have an exclusive (sorta NSFW) clip from the Jessie McCormack-directed film! In the clip, Andie — who has moved in with Lizzie and her husband for the duration of her pregnancy — is, um, getting to know Lizzie’s brother-in-law (i.e. with her mouth around his penis) when the couple walks in on them mid-job. Awkwardness ensues! Check out the full trailer for “Expecting” — which is available on VOD/iTunes tomorrow, November 26, and opens in select theaters on December 6 — after the jump!
