February 4, 2012 by staff
Nicolas Sarkozy & Carla Bruni, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy (born Carla Gilberta Bruni Tedeschi; 23 December 1967) is an Italian-French songwriter, singer, actress, and former model.
She has been married to Nicolas Sarkozy, the President of the French Republic, since February 2008; the couple has a daughter, Giulia, born in October 2011.

Bruni met the recently divorced French president Nicolas Sarkozy in November 2007 at a dinner party. After a brief romance they married on 2 February 2008 at the ?lysée Palace in Paris. The marriage is Bruni’s first and Sarkozy’s third. Bruni obtained French nationality not long afterwards. She has since made contradictory statements as to whether she still holds Italian nationality as well.
Following her marriage to Sarkozy, in February 2008, Bruni continued accompanying him on state visits, including to the United Kingdom in March 2008, which created a sensation in the international press and the public in the UK and France. She has an office and staff at her disposal in the East wing of the ?lysée Palace.
There was controversy on the eve of the state visit to the UK, with the publication by Christie’s auction house of a nde photograph of Bruni taken during her career as a model. The photograph sold for $91,000. There was also great interest in Bruni’s wardrobe, which was Christian Dior, seen as a diplomatic choice, being a French design house designed by John Galliano, a British designer. Another controversy was the use of a popular photo of the French President and Bruni in the print advertising of Ryanair. The couple was awarded damages by a French court which they donated to Les Restos du C?“ur, an organisation which provides meals to the homeless.
In December 2008, Bruni sued the makers of a bag featuring a nde shot of the French first lady taken during her supermodelling youth. Clothes designer Pardon has produced 10,000 of the shopping bags emblazoned with the nde photo taken in 1993, showing Bruni staring at the camera with her crossed hands covering her crotch.
On 19 October 2011, Carla Bruni gave birth to a baby girl, Giulia, in Paris.
