We covered the courtship of Carla Bruni and French president Nicolas Sarkozy, and now we can report that French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy is pregnant.
   The former model and singer’s secret—which saw her miss the Festival de Cannes and the première of Midnight in Paris, in which she has a cameo—was let out by her father-in-law, Pal Sarkozy, talking to the German newspaper Bild.
   In a public appearance for a foundation fighting illiteracy on Tuesday, Bruni-Sarkozy appeared visibly pregnant.
   ‘They do not know the sex of the child in advance, but I’m sure it will be a girl and she is as beautiful as Carla,’ said Sarkozy père. He says he is looking forward to being a grandfather again.
   There has still not been an official announcement from the Élysée.
   The child would be Bruni-Sarkozy’s second, after having a son in 2001 with Raphaël Enthoven. President Sarkozy has three sons from two previous marriages and became a grandfather in January 2010.
   Bruni was born in December 1967 in Torino. She became a model at 19 until embarking on a musical career, with her début album in 2002.
