Paris. Welcome to the daughter of Carla Bruni and Sarkozy
After days of anxious waiting, Carla Bruni gave birth to a daughter. "It was all right, she is called Giulia," a nurse said to a reporter. The delivery took place around 8 p.m. in the clinic of La Muette. Her husband, the French President Nicolas Sarkozy, has returned from London to Paris in a twinkling to hug his wife and the newborn baby.
For Carla, the baby is the second son, after Aurelien (now ten years old and born from a previous relationship). Sarkozy, on the other hand, has already three children from his previous marriages. It's the first time in France, under the Fifth Republic, that a president and his wife celebrate the happy event.
It's been a long labor: the former model, entered to the clinic of La Muette, near the Trocadero, at 9 a.m. The baby has come to light between 7 and 8 p.m. The President was not present at birth, the preparation of the crucial summit in Brussels, next Sunday, has forced him to fly to Frankfurt leaving Carla in the afternoon.
Photographers and cameramen went crazy when the President appeared in front of the clinic, kept under surveillance for an entire week by paparazzi and journalists, as well as the curious locals. On Tuesday night the number of police officers increased and the crowd control barriers were set to hold off the media.
The Elisha didn't want to confirm or deny the baby's birth and reasserted that there will be no announcement because "it is a private event." In addition there won't be photos and video of the baby, which will be protected from every media's exposure.
As for me, best wishes to Carla and Nicolas.
