“It was a very fragile moment in my life. I’m kind of tall, with good-size shoulders, and when I am 40 pounds overweight, I don’t even look fat — I just look ugly. Having children when you’re older is not easy.”

— I can see where you’re coming from, Carla Bruni … maybe? Can I? If Carla Bruni looks ugly pregnant, then what do the other pregnant people look like? This new Vanity Fair interview with the supermodel and former First Lady of France is, well, frankly kind of depressing, considering this is Carla Bruni we’re talking about and all she can seem to talk about is how shitty her life is. But she did speak openly about going to therapy  in “double the doses” these days, so points for that! And, like, absolutely nothing else. Sorry, Carla. [Celebitchy]

Carla Bruni certainly made her mark as one of the more, uh, contentious first ladies ever to hit French office: the longtime singer and model, not to mention the heiress to an industrial dynasty, made ceaseless waves with her swank wardrobe, party-girl past, and dubious intentions when she wed recently divorced French president Nicolas Sarkozy in 2007. Sarkozy vacated office earlier this year (in favor of François Hollande, whose own live-in girlfriend has stirred up quite a bit of national strife herself), but his disheartening political demise was far and away from the last we’ve seen of the couple — Mr. and Mrs. Sarkozy have recently found themselves mired in allegations of corruption over illegal cash donations the former president may or may not have received from Liliane Bettencourt, the heiress to L’Oreal and France’s richest woman. And if you thought the disgraced couple’s public humiliation saturation point had maxed out (one would assume, after their mansion and offices were raided by police last month), well, it’s time to reconsider.

Carla Bruni Misses Smoking & Drinking While Pregnant

“Quite frankly, I can’t stand it any more. I spend most of my time either sitting down or lying down. I can’t drink or smoke any more. I’m in a hurry to get it over with.”

— French First Lady Carla Bruni is so over this pregnancy thing. Glad to hear we’re not the only ones who think nine months sans booze sounds insane. Carla is passing the time with her feet up, reading 17th century French playwrights, and feeling “happy but fat.” Her bébé is due any day now — and so is her long overdue glass of vino.

8 Baby Gifts We’d Like To Get For Carla Bruni And Nicolas Sarkozy

From the department of things-you-knew-but-hadn’t-been-confirmed, Carla Bruni has made an official statement that she is pregnant. This is after her father implied it back in May, after she’s been spotted wearing maternity clothes, and after being photographed in a bikini that revealed a wee bit of a baby bump. But, hey, everyone needs to take their own time making these matters public knowledge. In her statements, Carla implied that the pregnancy wasn’t planned. “The coming happiness [was] unexpected and unhoped for,” she said. Guess that’s what happens when you keep the queen waiting while you get it on?

Carla isn’t talking when it comes to how far along she is, or the baby’s gender. “There are certain things which one should keep secret,” she said. Still, we are excited for her and her husband, Nicolas Sarkozy. After the jump, some baby gifts we’d like to get for them. Keep reading »
