French President Nicolas Sarkozy has never hidden his infatuation with celebrities. In recent years Sarkozy has burst with pride while being photographed with the stars he likes to count as both political supporters and personal friends.

This is from an article in TIME.

"has been bursting with pride" is more natural than "has burst with pride", isn't it?
