The news comes just a week after Sarkozy’s father told reporters he was “mad with joy” that the couple was expecting a child, putting an end to the rumors that began circulating when Bruni was spotted shopping for maternity clothes in April.
According to reports, Sarkozy was not too happy with his father for making the information public, but it was a close friend of the President, Jacques Seguela, that spilled the beans about the sex of the baby.
This will be the second son for former model and singer Bruni. She’s also mom to 10-year-old Aurélian from a previous relationship. Baby will make #4 for President Sarkozy, who has sons from two former marriages ranging in age from 13 to 25.
The President also became a grandfather in 2010.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
