She's definitely got a croissant in the oven!

President Nicolas Sarkozy's father confirmed that his son and wife Carla Bruni are expecting. In an interview with German newspaper BILD, Pal Sarkozy, 82, said he was "looking forward to [his] grandkid!"

"Both of them don't want to know the gender of the baby, but I am sure it will be a girl and as pretty as Carla," Pal added.

Bruni, 43, has a ten-year-old son, Aurélian, from a previous relationship; President Sarkozy, 56, has three children from previous marriages. This baby will be the couple's first child together.

Ex-model and singer Bruni married the President in February 2008; the mom-to-be has a role in Woody Allen's film Midnight in Paris which opens this summer.
