Carla and Nicolas were off to Brasil for Christmas, where they attended some official activities such as the birth of two turtles from the Dermochelys Coriacea family and a favela catwalk in Rio de Janeiro at the Pavao-Pavaozinho favela, where Carla spent her birthday. Paps also caught Carla exercising in the beach with her bodyguard and reportedly, Nicolas exercised everyday in the marvellous Brazilian beaches in the company of more bodyguards. Apparently a ship from the marine was inspecting the coast to guarantee their safe stay.
They spent Christmas Eve in Itacaré with Carla's son and father at the Txai Resort hotel, where they are staying. Brasil is where Carla's biological father, Maurizio Remmert, lives with his wife and two daughters, Consuelo and Violeta, in Brazil. Consuelo started not long ago working for the Elisee.
The couple apparently returned to France on the 29th December.
