French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy gave birth to a daughter – her first child with French President Nicolas Sarkozy – on Wednesday in Paris, Le Figaro reports.
Bruni-Sarkozy, 43, who confirmed her pregnancy in July, delivered around 8 p.m. at the Clinque de la Muette after arriving earlier in the day.
The baby girl, whose name is unknown, is the first child born to a ruling French leader since Napoleon.
Prior to giving birth, the singer/actress said she will not be releasing photos of the baby, insisting that the French people would not be interested in them anyway.
Bruni-Sarkozy married the French President, 56, in February 2008. Sarkozy has three children from two previous marriages; Bruni-Sarkozy has one son from a previous marriage.
