French President Nicolas Sarkozy's Mother, Andree: Bump And Grind, My Son


The mother of newly divorced French President Nicolas Sarkozy has advised him to enjoy his pick of available women — but not to marry any of them.

Speaking to a celebrity magazine, Andree Sarkozy, 82, said that her son should enjoy freedom in his personal life.

She said: "You know, in his job he will be spoilt for choice. But I hope that no one will get married again. I've had enough of brides."

Mr Sarkozy announced his divorce from his second wife, Cecilia, in October, just six months after he was elected. Since then he has been linked with a number of glamorous women, most recently television presenter Laurence Ferrari.

"Daudou", as Mr Sarkozy calls his mother, raised him and his two brothers after her husband walked out.

Of her former daughter-in-law, Mrs Sarkozy said: "We had a good relationship without being close. She is cold but she doesn't do it on purpose and she has always been nice to me." Mrs Sarkozy also said that she was not close to Cecilia's daughters from a previous marriage, Judith and Jeanne-Marie, saying: "They are distant. Very cold, a little like their mother."

Louis, the 11-year-old son of Cecilia and Nicolas, lives with his mother in Paris. Jean, 20, and Pierre, 22, Mr Sarkozy's sons by his first marriage, are students in Paris.

Speaking to Point de Vue magazine, after an official trip to China with the President, Mrs Sarkozy said she was delighted with the success of her "brilliant" son.

She said she also loved "the girls" her son had appointed to the Government.

Finance Minister Christine Lagarde was a "knock-out", she said, while singling out for praise the 42-year-old Justice Minister, Rachida Dati, and Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, 34, the junior Ecology Minister.
