carla bruni sarkozy may 2011 Carla Bruni Sarkozy names daughter GiuliaIt’s nice — not to mention helpful — that upon giving birth people are so quick to pick up a laptop these days. Or, at least, that they have a prepared statement ready to go live as soon as their bundle of joy takes the stage.

France’s First Lady, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, posted a note to her official website on Thursday (Oct. 20), the day after given birth to her and husband’s first child together, a baby girl.

“Je suis tr�s touch�e par les nombreux messages de f�licitations qui me parviennent depuis la naissance de notre petite fille Giulia.

“En cette heureuse occasion, mon �poux se joint � moi pour remercier chaleureusement tous ceux qui nous ont adress� ces t�moignages de sympathie.”

Or, for those who took Spanish in high school instead:

“I am deeply touched by the many messages of congratulations that I have received since the birth of our daughter Giulia.

“On this happy occasion, my husband joins me in expressing our warmest thanks to all those of you who sent us these tokens of your kindness.”

Before everyone gets up-in-arms about those famous people and their crazy baby names, “Giulia” is actually just the Italian spelling of “Julia.” Bruni-Sarkozy, now 43, was born in Turin and lived their for the first eight years of her life.

Likes: seasons with no more than 13 episodes, anti-heroes and binge-watching. Dislikes: when cartoon characters make out, when TV shows name check their titles, drawn out premieres and finales.
