Over the moon about starting a family, TV fitness guru Jules (Cameron Diaz) and dance show star Evan (Matthew Morrison) find that their high-octane celebrity lives don’t stand a chance against the surprise demands of pregnancy. Baby-crazy author and advocate Wendy (Elizabeth Banks) gets a taste of her own militant mommy advice when pregnancy hormones ravage her body; while Wendy’s husband, Gary (Ben Falcone), struggles not to be outdone by his competitive alpha-Dad, who’s expecting twins with his much younger trophy wife, Skyler (Brooklyn Decker).
Photographer Holly (Jennifer Lopez) is prepared to travel the globe to adopt a child, but her husband Alex isn’t so sure, and tries to quiet his panic by attending a “dudes” support group, where new fathers get to tell it like it really is. And rival food truck chefs Rosie (Anna Kendrick) and Marco’s (Chase Crawford) surprise hook-up results in an unexpected quandary: what to do when your first child comes before your first date?
What to Expect When You’re Expecting is inspired by the book of the same name. The Lionsgate comedy feature will be in theaters nationwide on May 11, 2012, just in time for Mother’s Day.
