Breathe easy, Bridget Jones fans, Colin Firth is back and ready to make us believe in love again ... hopefully. The 55-year-old British heartthrob was finally spotted in London reprising his role as Mark Darcy for Bridget Jones's Baby, the third installment of the beloved movie franchise due in theaters in September 2016.

We've had plenty of glimpses of Renée Zellweger in character since filming began on Oct. 2; however, this is the first look we've had of the award-winning actor as Mr. Darcy. Firth (whose character was engaged to Jones at the end of the last movie) looks as dapper as ever in a sharp black suit, black coat, and a stylish blue scarf. But where is his wedding ring?

Zellweger was also spotted in character—looking ready to pop thanks to a very convincing prosthetic belly—wearing a stylish pair of denim maternity overalls, a plaid shirt, and a baggy purple sweater.
