"I am deeply touched by the many messages of congratulations that I have received since the birth of our daughter Giulia," Bruni, 43, wrote on her official website Thursday.

Little Giulia no doubt gets her Italian name from her mother, who was born in Turin, Italy and is of both French and Italian descent.

"On this happy occasion, my husband joins me in expressing our warmest thanks to all those of you who sent us these tokens of your kindness," the former model added of husband Sarkozy, 57.

It's the couple's first child together; Bruni has one son from a previous relationship, while Sarkozy has three children from his two previous marriages to Marie-Dominique Culioli and Cecilia Ciganer-Albeniz.

Bruni is likely also celebrating some post-pregnancy luxuries -- like drinking and smoking!
