Why all the fuss?

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, who has already vowed not to release photos of her baby after the birth, now says few people would be interested in them anyway – at least in France.

"There isn't much to say," the French first lady, 43, tells the BBC about why she's been so quiet during her pregnancy. "So many women are expecting children and giving birth, and it's so uninteresting for French people."

She adds: "It's great news for me, but it's also something very banal."





There is another reason, though, why Bruni-Sarkozy – the wife of French president Nicolas Sarkozy – has been so low key. "I'm superstitious, so yes, I've been very careful," she says.

Bruni-Sarkozy, who also has a 10-year-old son with former beau Raphael Enthoven, will be the first wife of a French president to have a baby while he is in office.

"I guess it's the modern world going into the French Republic, which is not bad," she says.
