Carla Bruni's father-in-law has ended weeks of speculation by confirming that the French First Lady is pregnant.
President Sarkozy's father said to German newspaper Bild: "I'm glad to be having a grandchild."
The 82-year-old added that neither his son nor 43-year-old Carla "want to know the sex of the child, but I'm sure it's a girl who'll be as beautiful as Carla."
The former model and singer has a nine-year-old son Aurelien from a previous relationship. The baby will be her first together with husband Nicolas.
