PARIS, Oct. 16 (Xinhua) -- French first lady Carla Bruni has given birth to a baby girl on Wednesday night, local media reported.

Bruni has been accepted into La Muette maternity clinic earlier in the day. President Nicolas Sarkozy paid a visit there before departing for Frankfurt to meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel over euro area debt crisis.

The president reportedly hurried back to Paris some time after 11 p.m., three hours after the birth.

This was the second child to 43-year-old Carla Bruni, who has a son by an earlier relationship. Sarkozy, 56, already has three sons.
