London, May 17: French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy is expecting a child, the President’s father has revealed in an interview with the German Bild newspaper.
Speculation that Bruni-Sarkozy is pregnant has been rife for weeks, fuelled by her own cryptic comments, but Sarkozy Sr’s statement is the clearest indication yet that she is expected, reports the Telegraph.
“I’m glad to be having a grandchild,” said Sarkozy Sr, 82,
Neither the President nor his wife “want to know the sex the child, but I’m sure it’s a girl who’ll be as beautiful as Carla,” he added.
A former top model turned singer Bruni-Sarkozy already has a son born in 2001, while her husband, whom she married in February 2008, has three sons from two previous marriages, born respectively in 1985, 1986 and 1997. (ANI)
