Sarkozy’s father, Pal Sarkozy, has confirmed that his daughter Carla and son-in-law Nicholas are indeed expecting their first child together.
Rumours of her pregnancy surfaced back in April when gossip magazine Closer ran a story speculating the first lady was three months pregnant.
In response to what both the magazine reports and her father had to say on the matter, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy remains quiet about the matter. Perhaps her coy approach is due to the fact that she is 42 years old and at this age pregnancy becomes riskier, especially in the first trimester.
The expecting couple are no strangers to parenthood, as Carla has one son from an earlier relationship, and Sarkozy has three sons from his two previous marriages.
This pregnancy could give a boost to Sarkozy in the run up to next year’ presidential elections as his popularity is currently low. Perahps a presidential baby could help voters relate to a man they see as out of touch with their lives.
