It’s not that she doesn’t want to share the details of her pregnancy; First Lady of France Carla Bruni-Sarkozy just feels that the people of France are generally not that interested in it.
“There isn’t much to say,” Bruni-Sarkozy tells BBC of her decision to keep much of her pregnancy quiet, and the vow she made to never release photos of her baby. “So many women are expecting children and giving birth, and so it’s uninteresting for French people.”
“It’s great news for me, but it’s also something very banal,” she adds.
The First Lady also admits that there’s another reason that she’s stayed so low-key during her pregnancy, telling BBC, “I’m superstitious, so yes, I’ve been very careful.”
Bruni-Sarkozy, already mom to 10-year-old son, Aurélien, recently caused quite a bit of buzz when she was quoted saying that she “can’t stand” being pregnant anymore, and is “in a hurry to get it over with.”
