Carla Bruni has finally broken her silence on her pregnancy.
The French president's wife, who is 43, said it was a 'happy and unexpected surprise'.
Carla, a model-turned singer has revealed that she's postponed the release of her album because of the baby.
She insists, however, that her career as a musician is not over: "It's not put away forever, but just on the backburner".
Speaking to France's Nice-Matin newspaper about her exciting news she said: "I suppose it is very happy for me, but for everyone else it's trivial.
"People have other problems and it would be inappropriate to talk too much about it."
This will be Carla's second child and her husband Nicolas Sarkozy's fourth.
