PARIS (AP) — French President Nicolas Sarkozy has become a grandfather.
Two people close to the president say the wife of Sarkozy’s 23-year-old son Jean gave birth to a baby boy in the posh western Paris suburb of Neuilly-sur-Seine. The baby’s name was not immediately released.
An official close the presidency and one of Sarkozy’s good friends confirmed the birth of the 54-year-old Sarkozy’s first grandchild Wednesday. They declined to be cited by name because no official announcement has been made.
Jean is a law student and regional councilor west of Paris. He married former high-school classmate Jessica Sebaoun-Darty, an heiress of a French electronics-vending empire, in 2008.
Jean is the second of President Sarkozy’s three sons.
