Carla Bruni-Sarkozy: My Pregnancy Is ‘Uninteresting’ To French People

It’s not that she doesn’t want to share the details of her pregnancy; First Lady of France Carla Bruni-Sarkozy just feels that the people of France are generally not that interested in it.

“There isn’t much to say,” Bruni-Sarkozy tells BBC of her decision to keep much of her pregnancy quiet, and the vow she made to never release photos of her baby. “So many women are expecting children and giving birth, and so it’s uninteresting for French people.”

“It’s great news for me, but it’s also something very banal,” she adds.

The First Lady also admits that there’s another reason that she’s stayed so low-key during her pregnancy, telling BBC, “I’m superstitious, so yes, I’ve been very careful.”

Bruni-Sarkozy, already mom to 10-year-old son, Aurélien, recently caused quite a bit of buzz when she was quoted saying that she “can’t stand” being pregnant anymore, and is “in a hurry to get it over with.”

    Well, she’s not wrong. While Americans are by and large quite celebrity-obsessed, the French have a much stronger belief that one’s private life is just that, and they are far less interested in the details of famous people’s personal lives.

    Wow, a mother who understands that she isn’t the first to ever give birth and that the whole world isn’t transfixed by her. I’m starting to love her a little.

      I don’t think that celebrities in the USA think they are the first and only to give birth, I just think they get asked about it SOOOOO often, that it seems like that’s the only thing they talk about.

    That’s because us French aren’t interested in HER in general and her husband isn’t very interesting either… if only they would both go away

        Well, that’s what she meant : if only they would go away, meaning if only he was not re-elected next year. It’s highly probable by the way. He’s quite hated here in France by a majority of people.
