Although an official confirmation is yet to be issued, the latest photographs of Carla Bruni are proof enough that the singer is expecting.
Wearing a short white shift dress, Carla's burgeoning baby bump was clearly visible as she stepped out in Deauville with her husband, President Nicolas Sarkozy.
And the 43-year-old even touched her stomach whilst talking to Geertrui Van Rompuy, the wife of the European Council President, further fuelling the rumours.
France's First Lady was in the town to accompany her husband, who is attending the G8 summit.
Earlier this month, Nicolas's father, Pal, let slip the couple's joyous news when talking to a newspaper.
"They do not want to know the sex of the baby in advance, but I'm sure it will be a girl and she will be as beautiful as Carla," he said.
