London, Jan 8 (ANI): French Justice Minister Rachida Dati has returned to work five days after giving birth to a baby girl.
The 43-year-old glamorous minister, who has refused to name the father of the child, gave birth by caesarean section, reports the Telegraph.
Dati, recently, sparked a guessing game over the identity of the father after telling reporters that she had "a complicated private life."
Rumours have been rife that President Nicolas Sarkozy's younger brother Francois is the father. The buzz was fuelled after he was seen leaving the hospital on Sunday but has since denied the child is his.
The controversial minister wore a black polo neck jumper with a black suit to attend the first cabinet meeting of the year, smiling broadly to journalists and posing briefly for photographers.
Hours earlier, she had checked out of the Paris maternity clinic where her first child, named Zohra, was born two weeks prematurely on Friday. (ANI)
