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."

Just weeks before giving birth, Carla Bruni Sarkozy doesn't know whether the new arrival will be a boy or a girl – but she does know one thing.

She will not allow any photographs of the child to be published in the press, France's First Lady, 43, said in her first interview about the baby, which aired Sunday on the TF1 program Sept A Huit.

"You don't have a child for the [photo] gallery," said Bruni, insisting that her "position as the wife of the head of state has made me even more defensive. I understand the media interest, and I don't see any inconvenience in it for myself or my husband, but when it concerns the children, it's not impossible."

A picture is worth a thousand words as they say – and the French have been waiting for a month.

During a photo session at the historic Villa Strassburger, the former supermodel wore a white maternity shift and a black wool coat by Chanel Haute Couture, and gestured towards her belly for photographers while posing alongside Svetlana Medvedeva, wife of the Russian president.
