A Baby Girl for French President Sarkozy and Wife Carla Bruni

JACQUES DEMARTHON/AFP/Getty Images(PARIS) -- First lady of France Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and her husband President Nicolas Sarkozy welcomed a baby girl Wednesday.

The child -- the first to be born to a sitting French president, reports The Guardian -- was born Wednesday evening at the La Muette clinic in Paris.

While no official statement has been given on behalf of France's first family regarding the birth, media reports say President Sarkozy flew from Germany, where he was in talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel about Europe's looming financial troubles, to Paris to see his new daughter.

While this is the first birth of a child for the couple, it is the second for Bruni-Sarkozy, and the fourth for President Sarkozy.
