Parenthood has come late and unexpected to Julie and Jamie Diadoni. Both approaching their forties when their first son Jake is born, Jamie loses his job and Julie is forced to return to work in an attempt to keep the family out of debt.

Tensions mount when Jamie is told by a fortune teller that he is destined to be unfaithful, and Julie discovers she is pregnant again, which Jake feels is a threat to his exclusive alliance with his father.

Festival de Television de Monte Carlo Award for Best Drama Series. Robert Lindsay received a Best Actor BAFTA nomination.
