Young married couple Johnny and Trudy Ellis (Johnny Downs and Shirley Deane) are thrilled when their first baby is born. They are less than thrilled, however, when their happy household is invaded by Trudy's domineering mother Mrs. Wells (Marjorie Gateson). Momma's well-intentioned interference drives both husband and wife crazy and nearly causes a rift in their marriage. But by the time Trudy has her second baby, Mrs. Wells has learned her lesson and keeps her big yap shut. Essentially a half-hour sitcom blown up to 75 minutes, First Baby scores on its believability.
