Bruni-Sarkozy 'superstitious' about pregnancy

PARIS (AP) — French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy says she hasn't spoken much publicly about her pregnancy because she's been "superstitious" about it, and it's "so uninteresting for French people" anyway.

In an interview with British radio, the 43-year-old former supermodel turned singer says the pregnancy is "something very banal" — even if "great news" for her personally.

Bruni-Sarkozy said "playing guitar and touring is what I miss most" and didn't discuss next year's presidential election in excerpts posted on the BBC Web site Monday. The interview is to air Tuesday.

President Nicolas Sarkozy married Bruni in 2008, less than a year after he took office. She has a son from a prior relationship, and he has three sons from two previous marriages.
