PARIS - French first lady Carla Bruni was believed to be close to giving birth to her first child with husband President Nicolas Sarkozy on Wednesday, in what would be the first baby to be born to a French presidential couple in office.

Sarkozy arrived on Wednesday afternoon at the La Muette clinic in Paris, where Bruni was admitted earlier in the day, and left half an hour later.

He is expected to fly to Frankfurt on Wednesday for a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other euro zone policy chiefs for a meeting on the euro zone debt crisis.
