Rumours abound of Sarkozy engagement to Carla Bruni
French newspapers are claiming that French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his new beau, former model, Carla Bruni, will marry ‘imminently’.
The couple, who only made their relationship public last month, are currently on a private tour of Jordan and newspaper Journal du Dimanche predict a wedding date as early as February.
The pair has been trailed by the paparazzi ever since they were photographed together before Christmas holidaying in Egypt.
Sarkozy announced his divorce from his second wife Cecilia in October after 11 years of marriage.
Although Sarkozy has yet to comment publicly on his new relationship, it seems his future mother-in-law already has a case of foot-in-mouth disease. Marisa Tedeschi Bruni was quoted in the Italian press last month saying the president had asked for her daughter’s hand in marriage.
