Paris, Oct 31: French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and President Nicolas Sarkozy went for a stroll on the grounds of the presidential residence – 'La Lanterne' park in Versailles alongwith their newborn baby Giulia.
French photographers caught a brief glimpse of Giulia in October when her former-supermodel mother whisked her away from the Muette Clinic in Paris where she gave birth, reports Daily Telegraph, London.
This was the first time however that she had been pictured with both mother and her father, 56, who kept a protective arm round his wife.
Carla made sure to cover up her baby, after announcing earlier this year: "I will never show photos of this child. I will never expose this child".
The French first lady, 43, who is seen as somewhat of a limelight chaser, added: "I will do everything to protect this infant, and I'll be absolutely rigorous."
Sarkozy has spoken of his "deep joy" at the birth of his fourth child, but made it clear that it would be business as usual as he tried to sort out the Eurozone's growing financial crisis.
Of Giulia's birth, Sarkozy said: "Each one of you can also understand that it's an even deeper joy because it is private." Carla has a 10-year-old son, Aurelien, with a former lover, the philosopher, Rafael Enthoven.
Sarkozy has two sons, 26-year-old Pierre and Jean, 25, from his first marriage to Marie-Dominique Culioli, and a third, 14-year-old Louis, from his second to Cecilia Ciganer-Albéniz.
Pollsters say the birth could give a brief boost to Sarkozy as he grapples with a dismal popularity rating of around 30 per cent before a presidential election next Spring that Socialist challenger Francois Hollande is favourite to win.
Sarkozy, who is 5ft 5 ins, married the then Miss Bruni, 5ft 9 ins, following a whirlwind romance of just 80 days in 2008.
