Pregnant Carla Bruni Looks Swell As She Shows Off Her Bump

Shortly after Carla Bruni's pregnancy was finally announced, following weeks of speculation and coyness, she stepped out in a gorgeous white dress, proudly displaying her growing baby bump for the world to see.

France's First Lady was snapped in Deauville where she is accompanying her husband, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, at the G8 summit.

The mum-to-be ditched those loose hiding-a-baby-bump cover ups that she's been sporting over the last couple of weeks, opting for a gorgeous white frock to really show off her tummy.

She also chose a lovely black coat to finish her look, but to be honest, it doesn't look like it will actually do up over those new curves...

Rumour has it Carla and Nicolas are expecting not one baby, but twins, later this year.
