First Lady of France Carla Bruni gave birth to a baby girl last night, and now the beauty has revealed the name of her new bundle of joy!
On her website, Carla Bruni wrote:
"I am deeply touched by the many messages of congratulations that I have received since the birth of our daughter Giulia. On this happy occasion, my husband joins me in expressing our warmest thanks to all those of you who sent us these tokens of your kindness."
"On this happy occasion, my husband joins me in expressing our warmest thanks to all those of you who sent us these tokens of your kindness."
The lovely Italian spelling of Julia is likely a nod to Bruni's own Italian heritage. The former model and singer was born in the Olympic city of Turin.
Proud new father French President Nicolas Sarkozy announced the birth to the press, leaving the name revelation up to his wife.
"All of you who are parents can understand the very deep joy that Carla and I feel. Each one of you can also understand that it's an even deeper joy because it is private," he told reporters. "We have been lucky to have a very happy event take place. I will just keep to these few brief words to say to you that they are doing very well."
Bruni said she will not be releasing photos of the new baby because no one would be interested. While we beg to differ with that, she claims that women have babies all over the world every day and that while her new addition is exciting to her, no one else cares.
Bruni's pregnancy was officially confirmed in July after her obvious baby bump began making headlines throughout the world.
