Bruni-Sarkozy says the pregnancy was "unexpected."

Asked to confirm rumors it's a boy, she told Friday's Nice Matin daily, "I don't even know, myself. There are things that are better kept secret."

The supermodel-turned-singer added she put plans to finish her third album on hold but she pledged the baby wouldn't derail her career.

Bruni-Sarkozy has a son from a previous relationship. Her husband, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, has three sons from two prior marriages.

The baby, which is due before presidential elections next year, is their first child together.
