“Why don’t I answer? I’ll tell you. Nearly 180 percent of the time my husband is occupied by his country. He speaks only about that, he only does that, he is obsessed with it. … I’m mum to protect something and to protect all of the work he does.”

But Bruni-Sarkozy family members weren’t hush-hush on the baby discussion nearly as long as she was.

Pal Sarkozy, the president’s father, told Bild in May, “I’m glad to be having a grandchild. … The two do not want to know the gender in advance, but I’m sure it will be a girl and as beautiful as Carla.”

Bristol Palin ‘not sure’ if Levi ever read a book

“Not Afraid of Life” author Bristol Palin isn’t so sure whether fellow memoirist and ex-fiance Levi Johnston had ever cracked open a book before penning his own.

In a Thursday interview with Jay Leno, Miss Palin mocked Mr. Johnston, whose tell-all memoir, “Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs,” is slated for a September release.

Miss Palin, who has a son with Mr. Johnston, wrote disparagingly of her cheating “gnat” in her newly released book. When Mr. Leno asked Miss Palin whether she was concerned about how Mr. Johnston would describe her in his own memoir, the “Dancing With the Stars” finalist said no.

“No, because he’s going to have to find like a screenwriter or something to come up with more obnoxious lies, so I’m not worried about it,” she told the television show host.

“Has he read a book previously?” Mr. Leno asked.

“I’m not sure,” Miss Palin said, smiling.

Miss Palin’s memoir, which hit bookstores last month, shares details on how she drunkenly lost her virginity to Mr. Johnston as a teen. In a June sit-down chat with “Good Morning America,” Miss Palin explained that “it felt like” Mr. Johnston stole her purity.

“I’m not accusing Levi of date rape or rape at all,” Bristol said of her ex-beau. “But I am just looking back with the adult eyes I have now and just thinking that was a foolish decision. I should have never been underage drinking and I should have never gotten myself into a situation like that.”

Miss Palin and Mr. Johnston have had a bumpy relationship since the 2008 election campaign, when mother Sarah Palin ran alongside John McCain on the Republican presidential ticket. “Not Afraid of Life” asserts that Mr. Johnston claimed to have possibly impregnated another woman and told Miss Palin about it on the same day Us Weekly published a cover story about their 2010 engagement.

“The magazine was released on a Wednesday, and that Wednesday when it went nationwide, Levi comes home, comes to my condo and tells me that a girl might have his baby,” Miss Palin said. “That was definitely like a punch to the stomach. … It’s like, ‘OK, I just betrayed my family for you,’ ” Miss Palin explained, adding that her own family didn’t know about the engagement until the celebrity news magazine story went on sale.
