Maybe Maman?

E fantastique, non? We are imminently awaiting confirmation that France's First Lady, Carla Bruni, is approaching a mid-way mark through pregnancy as she has recently been spotted out and about, wearing what can only be described as ill-fitted, loose garments about her belly. Spring is in the air and there might just be a croissant in the oven (ok, this joke doesn't really translate across the Channel...)

It's no secret that Nicolas Sarkozy, President of France, and former chanteuse and model Carla have been trying for a child together, despite both having an already extensive family with former partners, the Daily Mail informs us.

Recently seen at the Elysee Palace, Carla 'enjoyed a drink with friends and then returned alone to her limousine. It was almost as if she was trying to show off her bump.'

'Mr Sarkozy, who hopes to be returned to the Elysee Palace for a second term, is said to have told ministers not to mention the pregnancy to anyone because it is in its early stages and 'fragile’.

Bets are on as to whether the child will follow in his or her mother's (rather long-legged) footsteps as a model or have his or her father's nose for politics...
