(Newser) – French first lady Carla Bruni headed home today with the littlest Sarkozy in hand, leaving the Paris clinic where she gave birth to daughter Giulia on Wednesday. The baby is the first born to a sitting French president, notes the AP, a fact that was evident by Nicolas Sarkozy's absence: The proud papa, who says he felt a "very profound happiness" at the birth of his first daughter, is in Brussels all day dealing with the European economic crisis.
