While other heads of state showered Giulia Sarkozy with gifts, President Obama offered a few winning words in honor of France's First Baby.
Fox News reports that at the G-20 Summit today, the President strayed from political topics while onstage with France's President Sarkozy, giving these well wishes:
"I want to congratulate Nicolas and Carla on the birth of Giulia. And I informed Nicolas on the way in that I was confident Giulia inherited her mother's looks, rather than her father's, which I think is an excellent thing."
He also kindly added, "Now, we share one of the greatest challenges and blessings of life, and that is being fathers to our daughters."
As you can see in the video below, Sarkozy takes it in stride. We only wish mommy Carla Bruni was onstage to share her reactions... but alas, she's probably off drinking and smoking in sweatpants while wheeling little Giulia around Versailles.
Ah, to be a French first lady.
