Just when George Banks (Steve Martin) has gotten used to his daughter, Annie (Kimberly Williams), being married, she announces that she's pregnant, making him an impending grandfather. Shaken by nearing this new milestone in his life, George soon has to process even more surprising news -- his wife, Nina (Diane Keaton), is pregnant too. Reeling from these revelations, George gets help from the eccentric Franck (Martin Short), who, conveniently, has moved from planning weddings to baby showers.
Perfectionist Gil Buckman (Steve Martin) struggles with the deficiencies of his children, thinking they reflect poorly on his parenting -- and Gil's siblings only add to the stress of his life. One of his sisters (Dianne Wiest) faces difficulty when her teenage daughter (Martha Plimpton) becomes pregnant. Another (Harley Jane Kozak) clashes with her husband (Rick Moranis) when she asks for more children. Gil's immature brother (Tom Hulce) turns up as well, with a young son he can barely handle.
