France’s First Lady Carla Bruni has finally confirmed she’s pregnant after months of keeping her baby news under wraps.
The model/actress refused to comment on reports she’s expecting her first child with her husband, President Nicolas Sarkozy, after she was spotted on several occasions wearing baggy clothes to mask her bulging belly.

Now the beauty has finally announced to the world that she is with child, telling French newspaper Nice-Matin her pregnancy is “unexpected and unhoped for”.

She is believed to be more than five months pregnant, but when quizzed about the child’s gender, Bruni returned to her enigmatic ways, saying, “That, I don’t even know myself. There are certain things which one should keep secret.”

Bruni is already mother to a son, Aurelian, from a previous relationship. President Sarkozy has three sons.
