Former French First Lady Carla Bruni is reportedly expecting her third child with her husband and former president Nicolas Sarkozy, according to reports.
The baby will be the 44-year-old's second child with Sarkozy, but third in total, as she has an 11-year-old son, Aurelian, with her ex Raphael Enthoven.
Earlier this week rumors surfaced that Bruni had 'fallen into depression' after giving birth last September and then facing her husband's presidential defeat during last month's presidential election.
France's Closer magazine let tells that the former supermodel was urged to practice 'total rest' throughout the pregnancy, noting that, "For several weeks people have been asking why she had not been able to shift the extra weight for her last baby. But we can now reveal Carla Bruni-Sarkozy is pregnant again. And with her stomach looking ever more round, she can no longer hide it."
The glossy continued its claim, telling, "She clearly wants to nurture this pregnancy with the utmost care, because, like the last one, it is later in life so all the riskier, and she has therefore been advised to take as much rest as possible. We wondered what the Sarkozy couple would do with themselves after leaving office, and now we know - play happy families!'
