The Baby Proposal

Layla Bennett has it all figured out—her own place, a thriving career and a loving fiancé. She co-hosts morning show Wake Up, Chicago! alongside her charming but sometimes irritating colleague Derrick Dray. They have different working styles. She likes to be spontaneous and improvise on air, while he’s more of a stick-to-the-script guy. When they’re given the bombshell of caring for a baby together, it’s their worst nightmare …

Dove Review

**This review is contributed by Super Channel—a channel dedicated to providing integrity and accountability in today’s entertainment.

Layla and Derrick are sweet to each other while on air hosting their morning TV show, but behind the scenes, not so nice. She wants spontaneity and to bring people optimism and hope and create happiness but he can’t get out of doing things the “old way”… no fun, just a boring predicable script. They are warned … stop your bickering and get along.

When they find a baby in a basket in the dressing room with a note attached saying there is no better “couple” who could take care of the little motherless child, Derrick and Layla must find a way to fit little Poppy into their day AND night lives while competing for the coveted big market “DayVue” host position in Los Angeles. But as they juggle night feeds and nap times, they can’t deny the growing chemistry. Is this unexpected arrival all they needed to realize where they were meant to be?

This is a delightful movie for the entire family, and little Poppy is adorable! The ending is only slightly predictable and getting there is much more than half the fun! Be prepared for a twist at the end when Layla goes against all she has worked for and makes an unexpected decision that leads to an incredible result neither she nor Derrick could ever have predicted … and a most happy life for Poppy, too.

The Dove Take:

Unexpected circumstances that seem insurmountable, can bring out the true good character of the most unlikely people when faced with having to make tough decisions that will benefit everyone.
