Love at First Child

| July 11, 2017

Despite some back pain after a wild one-night stand, successful architect and womanizer Ange Pagani is having a perfectly normal day. Until a frantic woman named Gabrielle turns up at his office, claiming his son has gotten her teenage daughter pregnant. Problem is, Ange has no son! He does everything to avoid Gabrielle, but for some reason, finds himself irresistibly drawn to this impassioned and proud single mother, wreaking havoc in his life.

The situation goes from bad to worse with the involvement of the son it turns out Ange does have, and the rapidly approaching baby. And then she is born, and everything changes. Ange gets a taste of parenthood, while Gabrielle struggles to keep her life and growing attraction for Ange, from spinning out of control. But as everyone involved is forced to face the bonds that unite them, this improbable, mismatched family somehow comes together and they all discover something most of them never expected. Unconditional love.

The film’s main characters are Gabrielle (Isabelle Carré), Ange (Patrick Bruel), Claire (Alice de Lencquesaing) and Simon (Thomas Solivérèsy).

Love at First Child is a cute movie, and I love the role that Bruel plays. He is the perfect cocky playboy, but his heart finally softens, not only for the baby, but for Simon and eventually Gabrielle. The film is full of surprises, but in a good way, after the initial tension is eased and all of the crew are on one accord.  No one can resist the bundle of joy, even though at first Simon isn’t aware that he is a new father, because Claire has kept the birth from him. And as most bundles of joy do best, this new addition to the family brings everyone together in the end.

Love at First Child is available nationwide July 11 on  VOD on  all major platforms including iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, Microsoft, Vudu, Comcast, Charter, Cox, Vimeo, and various other cable operators. For more information, visit
