Celine Dion: Twins on Board!

Celine Dion: Twins on Board!

Celine Dion is expecting twins and is already 14 weeks along, her rep Kim Jakwerth confirms.

The 42-year-old Canadian chanteuse became pregnant after attempting her sixth in-vitro fertilization and turning to acupuncture to improve her chances of a pregnancy.

“We’re ecstatic,” her husband/manager Rene Angelil tells People. “Celine is just hoping for a healthy pregnancy. She was hoping for one baby and the news that we are having two is a double blessing.”

The twins will be joining big brother Rene-Charles, 9.

Congrats to the happy family!

    I am really happy for her because this is what she’s been trying for so long,but he’s 68 ,that really going to be unfair on these children not having a dad around for long

  • akjin

    These celeberties having twins be it with ivf or not is getting so old and repetitive in hollywood

  • Liz

    I’m happy for her as well, but it’s so weird the way her husband says “she wanted a baby, she was hoping”, like he himself… didn’t.

  • Iffy Miffy

    I wish her a healthy pregnancy and healthy babies, best of luck!

    Oh i wish they didn’t announce it, because she unfortunately has been devastated due to a miscarriage in the past. They should wait a bit longer before announcing it. I really hope the children survive and are born happy and healthy.

    Good Luck and Congratulations :)

  • holly

    Oh, what for a gorgeous news! During I heard the song “You and I” I read this :). But I wanna see Celine in Vegas next year. I think it isn’t possible. Very sad…

  • Sheigh

    Wish these twins will stick in her skinny and old uterus during 9 months. Last ones were really afraid by it on only few weeks of sticking inside. And wish Rene will live until babies will walk too.

  • eliza

    I hope things go well this time. It’s great news for them.

  • Courtney

    ouch don’t be so rough losses can happen at any age look at Vanessa Redgrave for instance she lost her fourth child at age 34 after the shooting for the film Mary Queen Of Scots wrapped in about february 1971 about as pregnant as Celine is now granted she had 3 children at that point aged 8,6,& 2 correct that would be Natasha Jane Richardson born May 11th 1963 Joely Kim Richardson born January 9th 1965 from her marriage to oscar winning director Anthony “Tony” Richardson and a Son from her then lover current husband Franco Sparanero named Carlo Gabriel Nero born September 16th 1969 and the one they lost would’ve been a second son

    Good Luck to Celine with this pregnancy though I too feel like they announced it too early after what they went through last time with the miscarriage as after a loss like that at any age your skittish to say anything about the new pregnancy or enjoy it worring about what if it happens again as for example Joanne Woodward here when she was nearly 6 months preggers with her oldest daughter Nell who was her first successful pregnancy after a traumatic late term miscarriage during her & Paul’s London Honeymoon almost 11 months before this interview
    [IMG][/IMG] of course back then you couldn’t say Pregnant on TV or in print but she mentioned it when she said that her favorite child until Nell arrived was the oscar she’d won for best actress for the movie The Three Faces Of Eve the previous march just weeks after the loss of their first child

  • Caty – Dara

    I wish her the best :)

  • Donovan

    I’m worried about this, she’s had miscarriages in the past. I hope this doesn’t jinx it or anything.

  • Trice

    Congrats Celine & Rene!

    Good things for good people.

  • Noticias de famosos

    I’m happy for Celine! it was time to have a lucky
    after trying both. Congratulations!

  • whatever

    i wish them NOTHING

  • troi

    Why didn’t she just adopt if she wanted kids so bad? There are plenty of unwanted kids of all colors, races, nationalities etc in the world that NEED a good home. With the money she spent on IV, she could have probably adopted at least ten kids.

  • whatever

    @troi:or at least get a face transplant

  • Helen

    I’m so happy for them. She is such a down to earth and honest lady, and it’s so great that she isn’t afraid to share details with the world. She is optimistic and believes in things happening if you try hard enough. I can’t wait to see her with a belly :-) So happy for them

  • ichi

    congrats Celine, when I knew it I just jump of my chair, I wish you all the bless!

  • Louise

    That’s lovely news…I do think maybe waiting a little bit longer was probably best due to previous problems but I can see that it was lovely news and they wanted to share it.

    I love Celine and I bet she’s a great mum so I wish her all the best with the pregnancy.

  • the truth

    She don’t need anymore kids don’t you think?

  • angel of darkness

    congrates to celine!

  • angiefan

    Congrats to the three of them!!!!! I hope she has a wonderful pregnancy!

  • CanadaGirl

    @++Logan++: Agreed. I think it was a bit too soon.
    Unless of course she’s further along than she indicated and will “miraculously” lose the baby weight really quickly.

  • Ronda

    Yaay!! I’m so happy for them. I’m praying that this pregnancy is successful and and she carries them to term and she has two beautiful, bouncing babies.

    I wish them every happiness!

  • Alissa

    This is the world’s creepiest couple.

    I can’t imagine them actually doing it.

    I can imagine dirty old Rene jerking off into a test tube.



  • redT

    We’ll never hear the end of this.

  • Ewwwwwww old man

    Isn’t Rene like 145 years old????? This is beyond disgusting. Celine still looks good but he looks like a grandpa.

  • Please STOP

    OMG people need to know when to quit. How will he even care for those children when they are teenagers if he will probably be in a walker or wheelchair by that time?!

  • How old is Rene?

    How old is Rene? The article says Celine is 42 but I had heard he’s much older than her. I think at 42 it’s still okay to have kids because my own parents had me when they were 40 and they are both still strong and healthy. So I speak from actual experience. But I don’t think Rene should have kids so late in this stage of his life. It’s not fair on his children.


    I’m glad for Celine!! But I wish she would stop wearing FUR! It’s truly horrific what those animals have to go through.


    They spent an enormously vulgar amount on their wedding several years ago. It wasn’t even about luxury – it was just plain obscene! While there are people, children and stray dogs and cats starving on the streets I cannot reason spending millions for one event for one day. That’s a sin if I ever saw one.

  • Rene’s age

    How old is Rene??????????????????

  • Their wedding cost $1.75 MILL

    I remember reading about that Celine/Rene wedding. They married back in 1994 at the Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal, Canada. And afterwards had the reception at the Hotel Westin Mont-Royal ballroom. They had over 500 guests and their wedding reportedly cost $1.75 MILLION!!!! Probably enough money to save all the children in Haiti, huh?

  • Rene is a PEDOBEAR

    Do you people realize that this man is a PEDOBEAR? He starting managing her career since she was 12 YEARS OLD and he was like her father figure. How does a person go from nurturing a talented little girl musician to F-ing her, then marrying her, and then having babies with her? This is a PEDOBEAR if I ever saw one.


    This is after their Canadian wedding which cost them almost TWO MILLION DOLLARS: “Five years later the pair renewed their vows in an equally opulent Arab-themed ceremony, complete with live camels and belly dancers, in Las Vegas.” I guess money can’t buy class, huh?

  • Coodies

    Eeeewwww her husband is so fat and ugly. How can she shag this old man every night?

  • Jason

    Maybe Celine has a thing for overweight, gap-toothed, bald, white-haired, conehead-shaped, seniors with Guido style tans?

  • UCLA Class of 11′

    @Jason: LOL. Perfect comment.

  • Chrissy

    What is teh age difference between Celine and Rene? He looks much older.

  • Carlitos1982

    @Jason: Hey you forgot to add PEDOBEAR, DADDY-FIGURES.

  • Celine Dion fan since 1995

    I like Celine but let’s be honest, her hubby is too old to be a daddy at this age. Seriously, will Rene even be alive when these twins graduate from high school? Will he be physicall able to teach them to ride a bike or swim in a few years time. Or to learn to drive in 16 years if he’s even still alive?

  • Michael

    How old exactly is Rene Angeli?? He looks like he’s in his mid to late 60′s. So in 16 years… DAMN.

  • Mommy of 3

    It’s selfish and cruel to give these innocent babies such an old father who won’t be able to care for them very well or for very long due to his age. This is insanity!

  • Surfer Girl

    JARED: You forgot to include Rene Angelil’s age in the article.


    @Surfer Girl: I think Jared is SLACKING OFF on us. Obviously people are going to want to know Rene’s age. He’s so old he looks like an Italian grandpa and now he’s having more babies! Jared, just wikipedia or imdb him and then add his age to the post. Don’t be a slacker, dude. Our web hits we provide you allow your advertisers to pay you the big bucks!

  • Alexa

    This old pedobear and this baby-obsessed fertility-treatments-are-my-crack-cocaine woman give me the creeps.

  • de Cosmos


    Rene Angelil is 68 now. So he’ll be 80 before the twins are even teenagers.
