Former French First Lady Carla Bruni, 54, gushes over her ‘alpha male’ husband Nicolas Sarkozy and says he’s ‘gentle, kind and sexy’
Carla Bruni has hailed her husband Nicolas Sarkozy ‘gentle, kind and sexy’ as she opened up about their 14-year marriage.
The former French First Lady, 54, is married to Sarkozy, who served as France’s president from 2007 to 2012 and is currently under house arrest in Paris for allegedly knowingly exceeding his spending limits during his 2012 presidential bid.
The mother-of-two says that while her husband has a ‘super alpha’ attitude and likes to be in control of the situation, the pair rarely argue because they’re both ‘intense people’ who keep things ‘very positive’.
In an interview with The Sunday Times, she said: ‘He is super alpha, directing everything, taking control of everything’.

‘That’s why he became the president because he has this temperament.
‘But he doesn’t need a country, he does it anyway. He’s also the gentlest and kindest man in the world. And he’s so sexy.’
In the 1980s, the Italian-born beauty was a hot commodity in the fashion world and walked for LaCroix and Chloe, among others, before beginning a career in music.
Carla met Nicolas, who has three other children from previous relationships, at a dinner party in 2007 and instantly hit it off.
Following a whirlwind relationship the couple married three months later, and share a daughter Giulia, ten, while Carla has a son, Aurélien Enthoven, 21, from a previous relationship.
Sarkozy was handed a 12-month sentence by a judge after being found guilty of illegal campaign financing in the 2012 election.

The judge at Paris’s Correctional Court said the 66-year-old, who held office from 2007 to 2012, could serve his term from home – where he will have to wear an ankle bracelet.
Prosecutors had been asking for at least six months of actual jail time for Sarkozy, along with a six-month suspended sentence. His legal team have filed an appeal, which effectively suspends the sentence until their case is heard.
The most recent sentence comes six months after Sarkozy was handed another one-year jail term with two years suspended for trying to bribe a judge.
At the time, Bruni called the verdict ‘senseless harassment’ while vowing to fight on so ‘truth will see the light’.
Sarkozy’s legal team have also lodged an appeal in that case, meaning he remains a free man for the time being.
His legal woes are set to continue, however, with more corruption cases pending including allegations that he received millions in laundered money from former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.
