Reports: French first lady gives birth to girl

Posted: Updated:

PARIS (AP) — French media reports say first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has given birth to a baby girl — the first infant born to a sitting president in modern-day France.

President Nicolas Sarkozy was returning from a meeting in Frankfurt on the euro debt crisis when the child was born around 8 p.m. (1800 GMT) on Wednesday, according to a BFM report.

Europe 1 radio said the 43-year-old mother was doing well after the birth at the small, private Muette Clinic in western Paris.

The presidential palace did not immediately confirm the reports.
