French newspapers reported Monday that President Nicolas Sarkozy is romancing supermodel-turned-pop singer Carla Bruni, just two months after his divorce.
Sarkozy, 52, and Bruni, 38, were photographed together at the Disneyland theme park near Paris on Saturday.
The respected news weekly L'Express posted a photo of the duo on its Internet site, and at least two other magazines said they would run the images.
The president's office would not comment on their status. But the daily Le Figaro ran a front-page image of Bruni on Monday with the headline: "Carla Bruni: The President's Girlfriend."
Christophe Barbier, the editor of L'Express, said he called Bruni before going public with the story.
"She confirmed the relationship," he said.
Sarkozy and Bruni visited Disneyland when the park was thronged with visitors, L'Express reported. Several photographers reportedly were on hand and openly snapped photos of the pair, who seemed at ease with the attention.
Colombe Pringle, editor of Point de Vue magazine, said she believed Sarkozy and Bruni made themselves available to photographers deliberately.
"Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni wanted people to know," she told. "Otherwise, I don't know why they would have gone to Euro Disney to look at the Mickey (Mouse) parade."
Sarkozy has two sons from his first marriage and one son from his 11-year marriage to Cecilia Sarkozy, which ended in divorce in October.
He is the first French president to divorce while in office.
Bruni was born in Italy and is the heiress to a tyre manufacturing fortune. She was a top fashion model before turning to pop music. She has been linked in the past to a number of famous men, including rocker Mick Jagger and mogul Donald Trump.
