We don’t really like celebrity pregnancy speculation, but we’re fascinated with how news of Carla Bruni‘s growing belly is being covered. The latest news comes from the guy who set the supermodel up with the president of France, advertising tycoon Jacques Séguéla. He says the couple is having a garçon.
It’s an interesting turn from a few weeks ago, when President Sarkozy‘s father, Pal Sarkozy told a German newspaper he was excited to have a granddaughter. But Séguéla told Brussels daily Le Soir he has it “on good authority that the baby will a boy.”
Yeah. We’re guessing that that’s even more speculation, given that it’s been widely reported that the couple don’t want to know the sex of the baby. Unless Séguéla has been bribing Carla’s obstetrician, we seriously doubt his story is true. But it’s worth noting that, given that he’s set the couple up, he’s been a useful source for information about their relationship.
This is not the first time Mr Séguéla has filled the public in on the presidential couple’s private lives. In 2009, he gave a blow-by-blow account of how they met at an impromptu “blind date” soirée, describing the scene as an “unexpected game of seduction between two wild beasts”.
Yeah, we’re just going to wait for the kid to be born.
