Carla Bruni, the First Lady of France and wife of President Nicolas Sarkozy, has fuelled speculation that she is pregnant with her second child. Carla Bruni, who makes her acting debut in Woody Allen's 'Midnight In Paris', failed to deny rumours that she is expecting when quizzed by reporters yesterday.
In an interview with French magazine 'Le Parisien', Bruni fended off inquiries by clutching a shawl to her stomach and saying, "My lips are sealed to protect something". Asked by the reporter if the answer would be revealed in six months' time, the First Lady giggled and said "Yes". Answering questions from readers of the magazine, the 43-year-old said she regretted not being able to fully discuss the pregnancy rumours that surfaced last week, saying, "I would love to speak woman-to-woman of my family life, my personal dreams, of the details of certain things. Moreover I am very talkative. But here, in a way, I have my mouth sewn shut". Bruni is currently in Cannes promoting 'Midnight In Paris', which opened the Film Festival today (11th April 2011). She plays a museum guide in Woody Allen's romantic-comedy about a young family travelling to the French capital for business. The movie also stars Owen Wilson, Marion Cotillard and Rachel McAdams.
Carla Bruni met the recently divorced French president Nicolas Sarkozy at a dinner party in November 2007. They married at the Elysee Palace in Paris on 2nd February 2008.
