Carla has baby and is remarkably sensible

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has gone way up in my esteem, despite the unfortunately waxy-like outcome of her many non-invasive cosmetic facial procedures. 
In the run-up to the birth, Bruni-Sarkozy insisted political considerations and timing - even the expectation of a birth in mid-financial crisis - had not been taken into account as the first family made its plans.

She insisted any baby's arrival is "a happy carefree moment and that's how it's been since the dawn of time".

"We're in a time of crisis, but if human reproduction was decided by thinking about whether you're going to have a perfect life, we wouldn't be here to talk about it, neither you nor I," the Italian-born heiress said.

"What's more, I think that the survival instinct is also expressed by the desire to have a child."
"Of course, I'll look after the baby, but I don't see that that should stop me working," she said, stressing that she receives a lot of help and does not have a difficult life.

"As to the duties related to my husband's job - and there are not so many - I do them willingly," she said.
 What a charming, delightful woman.

I hope for her sake that it's not really true that husbands and wives (like owner and dog) eventually grow to resemble each other.
