Paris: President Sarkozy marries singer Carla Bruni

President Nicolas Sarkozy married singer and former model Carla Bruni in a small ceremony Saturday, the couple announced. In a terse statement, the couple said only that they "were married this morning in the presence of their families in the strictest privacy." The official statement followed an announcement of the wedding several hours earlier from the mayor who had performed the ceremony. Sarkozy, 53, and Bruni, 40, have had a whirlwind courtship: they married less than three months after they reportedly first met, and less than four months after Sarkozy divorced his second wife, Cecilia.
