French publications Le Figaro, Le Journal du Dimanche, and Le Parisien are reporting that their first lady is with child! According to French magazine Closer, the Élysée Palace would neither confirm nor deny the rumors because Bruni is in the very early stages of pregnancy (famous people typically don't confirm pregnancies until after the first trimester, and many outlets avoid reporting them until that time as well). Bruni, who is 43, gave birth to her first child, Aurelien, in 2001. So ... what royal wedding?
