Three years after she married Nicolas Sarkozy following a whirlwind romance, Carla Bruni is pregnant with their first child together, it was claimed yesterday.

The 43-year-old wife of the French president is said to be in the early weeks of pregnancy, meaning the child would be born before the election next spring when Mr Sarkozy is hoping to win a second term.

To quote a really hilarious comment, looks like she got cozy with Sarkozy.

At that age, women have a greater chance of having babies with Down’s Syndrom .... hope the kid is okay!

If that was found on amniocentesis, what would they do?

Yes. Plus add in the mother’s decades of chain smoking as another factor for potential genetic damage.

Mooshelle will be delighted to no longer be the heaviest first lady in the free world...at least for a time.

No way! Carla at 9 months won’t weigh as much as MO’s left butt cheek!

They must know the results already otherwise they would have kept it secret....
I cannot see Sarkozy with a Downs syndrome baby...

Less than 10% of a chance of a pregnancy going to term with 43-year-old eggs. Unless she used donor eggs. Either way I wish them all the best.

I wish them the best also. I had a baby at 41 yrs old & everything was just perfect. She went full term & was the prettiest baby in the hospital that day. I had all kinds of tests & either way Sassy was being born. She is a Blessing to this family. And she keeps us all on our toes. I think by me being older I enjoy her more then I did with my now adult children. I have more time & I know what mistakes I made. We home school & have lots of fun. She is a bit spoiled by her sisters & brothers but she is the baby.

You have a point there. Even at full term, Carla may be lighter than Mooshelle.

And 3 months after birth Carla will be back to her normal slender self.

“Maternal age influences the chances of conceiving a baby with Down syndrome. At maternal age 20 to 24, the probability is one in 1562; at age 35 to 39 the probability is one in 214, and above age 45 the probability is one in 19.”

My mother at age 43 gave birth to my highly intelligent and gorgeous sister who in turn at the age of 43 gave birth to her mini-me who is also beautiful and intelligent.

I had 3 in my late 30s after smoking for decades and all three are just fine, actually better than fine.

While age definitely plays a factor, beyond that I really think it’s a roll of the dice. Sarah Palin leads a healthy lifestyle and had a Downs Syndrome baby she considers not only ok, but a blessing to her family. Nobody prays for their child to be born with Downs Syndrome, but mature couples who have faith certainly can accept it and see the blessing. What the Sarkozy’s would do is anyone’s guess.

Really? Kool for you (bad pun intended)!

I've read there's a big difference between late 30’s (like you) and mid 40’s (like SP) in regards to developmental problems and having kids.

OTOH, I had a neighbor back when I was growing up that was a heavy drug user (coke, grass, glue sniffing, who knows what else) and she had a daughter at 17 that is so severely retarded (wheelchair-bound, cannot speak, etc), we used to say the skank mother should have been arrested for child abuse and/or attempted murder.

Good luck to the Sarkozys.

I would never argue that using mind-altering drugs wouldn’t be a sure, terrible hazard to any fetus. While smoking isn’t the smartest thing in the world for a variety of reasons, it doesn’t compare to using rec drugs, especially in pregnant women. I belive they said it could reduce birth weight, which becomes significant with premmies; multiples are notoriously early. I didn’t smoke during pregnancy, btw.

My grandmother started having healthy babies at 23 and gave birth to her last at age 47.

And what is wrong with a Down’s syndrome baby? I have a niece who has Downs and the world has never had a sweeter, more loving person in it. Down’s syndrome people are to be treasured.

It’s not the size of the woman that bothers me, it’s the udder and complete lack of common sense. The other two first ladies / princess look like they belong at a state dinner. Our first lady looks like her car broke down on the freeway and she’s lugging a gas can to the nearest fill-up station.

It is photoshop. All three women have walked up those stairs (a Spanish palace?) though not at the same time. Nonetheless, the hindquarters comparison is legit. Moochelle is indeed a hulking graceless thing.

Interestingly, I see it more like the wife of the TOTUS reader is taking her big gas can to the nearby 7-11.
