Celine Dion Says She's 'Doing Okay' After Mother Therese's Death

Celine Dion updated fans on how she was doing since it was announced that her mother, Thérèse Tanguay Dion, had passed away the night before.

“I’m pretty sure that you heard the news about my mom passing away early this morning,” the legendary singer told the crowd during her concert at the American Airlines Arena in Miami. “But I’m doing okay.”

Celine continued, “My mom was 92. She was ill for quite a while. And we knew she wouldn’t be with us long. Two days ago, we got a call from the nurses who were taking care of her so well, saying that her time was coming soon. Very soon. So last night, I joined my brothers and sisters in Montreal and I spent the evening at her bedside.”

“We told stories. We sang songs. We hugged each other. And we said our goodbyes,” she shared with her fans. “We are pretty sure that mom waited for us to be all together before [she passed].”

Earlier in the day, Celine shared a touching tribute to her mom on Instagram.
