Carla Bruni, wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy had said that her newborn baby daughter Guilia would not become a publicity tool in the campaign of her husband to be re-elected as French president. The admirable couple was pictured taking their adorable Guilia for her first stroll on the grounds of the presidential residence – the Palace of Versailles in Versailles, France on October 31.
Wrapped up against the autumn chill, the 12-day-old Giulia of the French President and First Lady was indeed hidden from public view. However, the images of Carla Bruni and President Nicolas Sarkozy walking arm in arm with their daughter make some French commentators cynical about their public appearance. Some even suspected that Nicolas Sarkozy’s aides had tipped off photographers.

Several political experts said that the images of Nicolas Sarkozy stepping out with his wife and his newborn baby daughter won’t do his electoral chances any harm at all. One expert said that the president wanted to be seen as a normal father who also loves enjoying some autumn’s fresh air and sunshine with his former supermodel wife and baby; but “as publicity shots of France’s First Family, they will take some beating,” he said.

President Nicolas Sarkozy, 56, looked casual in a white shirt and a blue scarf while the new mother Carla Bruni, 43, whose daughter Giulia was born on October 20, has shifted not back into her glamorous ways but into full-on mom mode, wearing a grey cardigan, stretch pants, and flat soles, which help to disguise the 4in height difference between the couple.

Mr Sarkozy, who married Carla Bruni following a whirlwind romance of just 80 days in 2008, has three sons from his two previous marriages. Mr. Sarkozy has his first two sons Pierre, 26, and Jean, 25, from his first marriage to Marie-Dominique Culioli, and the third son Louis, 14, from his second to Cecilia Ciganer-Albéniz. Meanwhile, Carla Bruni also has a 10-year-old son Aurelien with Raphael Enthoven, a Paris philosopher.
