Celine Dion Sleeps Next to Her Six-Year-Old Twins Every Night After Husband's Death

Celine Dion is opening up about her touching nightly tradition.

The 49-year-old singer says she has shared the same bed as her six-year-old twins – Eddy and Nelson – every night since her husband Rene Angelil passed away last year. (See photos of the kids here and here.)

“I organize myself to not feel lonely,” Celine told The Sun. “So I got myself a huge, huge, huge bed and I sleep with my twins. They are comforting me a lot. I need them. I need them close. When it’s time for them to say they want their room, their room’s ready. But we watch a lot of TV together. I’m discovering Disney.”

“They’re really well because I’m strong,” she went on. “I’m sounding pretentious but if I don’t show them the way, they will question it. ‘Papa is not coming back but Papa is in your heart.’”

“We kiss him every night,” Celine added. “We have a little ritual where we say goodnight to him with a little picture. Then the kids talk to him. And they write words, put them in balloons and we send the balloons to the sky.”

On finding new love, Celine shared, “Now it is definitely too soon for me. I am definitely in love with [Rene], married to him. He’s the love of my life. It’s very difficult for me to see myself with another person. The love that I have for him, I live it every day. And as a woman, we do have emotions and feelings that come and go. And it’s always with him.”
