French First Lady Carla Bruni Gave Birth

Carla Bruni (43) and Nicolas Sarkozy (56) have welcomed a baby girl to the world this week. The former model-musician gave birth on Wednesday in Paris to Giulia, who weighed in at 7 1/2 lbs. Giulia will be the first child ever born to a French presidential couple in office and is the first child for Bruni and Sarkozy.

The couple met in 2007 and were married in February 2008. Sarkozy has three children from a previous marriage - Pierre (25), Jean (23), and Louis (13). Bruni has one child from a previous marriage - Aurelian (10).

Bruni has already told the press that she will not be releasing photos of the baby. She said in a July interview of her discretion: "It's a source of great happiness for me, but after all, it's banal and the people [of France] have plenty of problems, so it would be inappropriate to talk about it."

Congratulations to the happy couple!
