Recently, the French site Voici posted a photo of a pregnant Bruni talking on the phone outside her home, knocking down rumors that she might have already given birth.
But waiting for her baby – which was due on October 1 – seems to have become unbearable for the 43-year-old.
“Quite frankly, I can’t stand it any more,” an eight-month pregnant Bruni said. “I spend most of my time either sitting down or lying down.”
“I can’t drink or smoke any more. I’m in a hurry to get it over with,” the Daily Mail quotes her as saying.
The French first lady is already a mother to Aurelien, who was born in 2001 with ex-boyfriend Raphael Enthoven.
French president Nicolas Sarkozy, 56, has three children, Pierre, 25, Jean, 23, and 13-year-old Louis from two previous marriages.
