Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, the First Couple of France, have welcomed their first child together, according to news reports. It's a girl!

Bruni-Sarkozy, 43, who confirmed her pregnancy in July, delivered around 8 p.m. at the Clinque de la Muette after arriving there earlier in the day.

The girl, whose name is unknown, is the first child born to a ruling French leader since Napoleon. He has three children from a previous marriage.

Prior to giving birth, the singer, actress and model said she will not be releasing photos of the baby, insisting that the French people would not care anyway.

That's debatable, but still, good for her.

Bruni-Sarkozy married the French President, 56, in February 2008. The Italian native also has one son of her own from a previous marriage.

Congratulations to the happy family!

Last week, numerous sources reported that Carla Bruni Sarkozy is pregnant after her father in law let it slip. Now we can report that she's expecting a boy!

Advertising tycoon Jacques Séguéla, who brought her together with French President Nicolas Sarkozy 2007 at a dinner party, is the guilty party this time.

He disclosed the sex of the child in an interview with a Belgian newspaper, telling Brussels daily Le Soir: "I have it on good authority that the baby will a boy."

It will be the couple's first child together. France's 43-year-old first lady has a nine-year-old son, Aurélien, with the media philosopher Raphael Enthoven.

Sarkozy, 55, has three sons from his two previous marriages.

Séguéla's revelation about the sex of their baby came a week after the president's 83-year-old father Pal Sarkozy announced he was "mad with joy."

He said: "They do not want to know the sex of the baby in advance, but I'm sure it will be a girl and she will be as beautiful as Carla." Or not.

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has not personally confirmed she is pregnant, telling Le Parisien newspaper: "My lips are sealed to protect something."

French President Nicolas Sarkozy and First Lady Carla Bruni are expecting their first child as a couple, according to European news reports. She's pregnant!

Although speculation that the model, singer and actress may be with child has been in the air for some time, Sarkozy's father ultimately spilled the beans.

"The two do not want to know the gender in advance, but I'm sure it will be a girl, as beautiful as Carla," said the President's father, Pal Sarkozy, to Bild.

The nation's first couple has yet to comment on the news, but during a television appearance Monday, Bruni was wearing concealing, loose-fitting clothing.

The host of the French TV program promised not to touch on Bruni's personal life but congratulated the Italian beauty, eliciting laughter from the mother-to-be.

Some speculate that Bruni may be carrying twins due to her growing midsection.

Sarkozy's office refused to comment, but Bruni's mother, Marisa Bruni Tedeschi, insinuated to the Italian La Stampa newspaper that the family may soon grow.

Bruni has one son, Aurélien Enthoven, from a prior relationship and Sarkozy has three sons from his previous marriage. Congratulations to the happy couple!
