She's Having a Baby is a 1988 romance directed by John Hughes. When Jake Briggs (Kevin Bacon) marries Kristy (Elizabeth McGovern), little does he realize how much his life is about to change. Still somewhat immature, Jake takes Kristy to New Mexico to finish his Masters degree. Before finishing, Jake drops out telling Kristy "it's like high school with ashtrays." Returning to Chicago, Jake lies about his background and lands a job as a copywriter at an advertising company. Kristy starts work as a research analyst and the two buy a three bedroom home in the suburbs. As Jake struggles with fantasies of extramarital affairs and lives vicariously through the stories of his friend Davis McDonald (Alec Baldwin), Kristy unilaterally decides to stop taking birth control. When, after several months, Kristy fails to get pregnant she tells Jake the truth. Rather than being angry, Jake agrees to begin fertility treatments. When Kristy finally does get pregnant, Jake struggles to find his balance before the baby is born. With uncannily realistic dialogue from John Hughes, this romance is sure to charm newly weds and life long couples alike.moreless
