After much speculation that France's First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy was pregnant, the news has finally been confirmed.
But it wasn’t Bruni or her hubby President Nicolas Sarkozy who revealed the news, it was his father!
The excited grandad told a German newspaper that Bruni is preggers, adding:
"Neither wants to know the gender beforehand, but I'm certain it will be a girl, and beautiful like Carla."
The wife of ex-French President Jacques Chirac spoke to the press today to congratulate the happy couple, saying:
"It's wonderful news to see this baby coming. It's a chance for France, absolutely. And a birth, it's a wonderful event for a family, the arrival of a child. There is nothing nicer. A baby at the Elysee (presidential palace), yes. It's wonderful for them and for all the French people.”
