First good look at Carla Bruni's baby bump

Wednesday May 18, 2011

She posed for photographs with her hands crossed strategically over her middle.

But there was no getting away from it – Carla Bruni was displaying a baby bump.

The French president's wife had a difficult time disguising the obvious as she attended a launch for her illiteracy foundation in Paris.

And if the 43-year-old wanted to be discrete, it didn't help that her father-in-law confirmed her pregnancy that same day.

Pal Sarkozy, 82, told a German newspaper: "I'm glad to be having a grandchild."

The pensioner added that the couple don't "want to know the sex of the child, but I'm sure it's a girl who'll be as beautiful as Carla".
