In the hilarious new film Delivery Man, Vince Vaughn plays an affable underachiever looking for his purpose in life, when he finds out he’s fathered 533 children through anonymous donations to a fertility clinic 20 years ago. Now he must decide whether or not to come forward when 142 of them want to meet their biological father.
While the concept of the film is amusing, it’s also a really heartwarming look at what it means to be a family — no matter how unconventional. The definition of family has evolved and, as seen in the film, can come in all shapes and sizes. As a newly single mom with five kids under eight, I am grateful for the heaps of support I get from my parents in caring for them. While we are not a conventional family either, the kids are all happy and know they are loved!
I was lucky enough to get an early sneak peek at a trailer for the film and I’m excited to be able to share it with you. I’m a big Vince Vaughn fan and I laughed through the trailer so I can’t wait to see the movie when it comes out this fall.
