The Obamas may be awfully glamorous for an American President & First Lady, but the French definitely have us beat. Not only is Carla Bruni continuing her music career and appearing in Woody Allen‘s Midnight In Paris, the 43-year-old is reportedly pregnant! Pal Sarkozy, father of French president Nicolas Sarkozy, confirmed to a German newspaper that the pair are expecting. “Neither wants to know the gender beforehand,” said the elder Sarkozy, “but I’m certain it will be a girl, and beautiful like Carla.” The alleged parents-to-be have declined to comment as yet.
While the child would be Bruni and Sarkozy’s first together, the former model has a 10-year-old son from an earlier relationship to then-married professor Raphael Enthoven. Meanwhile, 56-year-old Sarkozy—who recently became a grandfather—has three sons from two previous marriages. With the French prez dealing with record lows in popularity, could this news help his re-election chances next year?
