French President Sarkozy to marry girlfriend Bruni: report|
Sun Jan 6, 10:56 AM ET
PARIS (AFP) - French President Nicolas Sarkozy is to marry his new girlfriend, the former model turned pop singer Carla Bruni, a French newspaper reported Sunday, claiming a wedding was "imminent."
Citing several anonymous sources, the Journal du Dimanche said the couple, currently on a private visit to Jordan at the invitation of King Abdullah II, are believed to have set a wedding date for either February 8 or 9.
援引了数个不详消息源的Journal du Dimanche称两人目前受约旦国王阿卜杜拉二世的邀请下进行私人拜访。 据称两人将于二月八日或九日结婚。
Presidential spokesman David Martinon declined to comment on the front-page report, which was widely relayed on French radio and television.
Sarkozy, 52, and Bruni, 39 -- a rich heiress whose past conquests include rock stars Mick Jagger and Eric Clapton -- have been trailed by a swarm of paparazzi since their romance was first publicised in mid-December.
今年52岁的萨科齐和39岁富家女、前摇滚歌星Mick Jagger和Eric Clapton 的女友Bruni之间的恋情自从去年十月中旬被公众曝光以来就成为狗仔队们跟踪的目标。
During a Christmas trip to Egypt, where their presence sparked a media stampede, the president reportedly gave Bruni an engagement ring -- a pink diamond heart -- while Bruni gave him a luxury Swiss watch in grey steel.
Newly divorced from his second wife Cecilia, Sarkozy has yet to comment publicly on his relationship with Bruni, but is expected to answer the media's questions at a New Year's press conference on Tuesday.
The report of marriage came as a poll showed Sarkozy's confidence rating slipping seven points -- a drop blamed in part on voter concerns about his highly-publicised new romance.
The couple were photographed on Saturday as they toured the rose-red city of Petra in southern Jordan, the president carrying Bruni's young son Aurelien on his shoulders.
Bruni may also accompany Sarkozy on an official trip to India late this month, according to local media, which said the government of the morally conservative country was struggling to find the right protocol to greet her.
