Celine Dion Shakes Her Late Husband Rene Angelil's Hand Every Night

Celine Dion is opening up about her family life since losing her husband Rene Angelil two years ago in her new cover shoot for Stellar Magazine, available now in News Corp’s Sunday Telegraph and Sunday Herald Sun.

Here’s what the 49-year-old “My Heart Will Go On” singer had to share with the mag:

On the replica of Rene’s hand, cast in bronze, that sits backstage at every concert she plays: “I shake my husband’s hand and knock on wood with him every night before every show. Even after he’s gone, I still talk to him.”

On being on stage throughout her husband’s illness and returning only weeks after his passing: “My husband wanted me to go back onstage before he passed, that’s what he wanted the most. So I went back onstage while he was still alive; he wanted to make sure I could keep going. So I did prove to him yes, 
I could keep going. I told him I’ve got the kids and that he’s got to trust me, he’s got to relax.”

“He taught me so much. He did a great job; what he had been giving to me all his life and all my life will always be with me. He gave me his all. He mortgaged his house to pay for my first album. I guess before he left he wanted to make sure I was fine. I’m trying to prove to him every day I’m fine. Our kids are growing, we feel strong. We’re good.”

On March 30, Celine will turn 50, and she’ll be onstage in Las Vegas performing: “I’m not a birthday girl, not even when I was 20. To be honest, I’d rather be doing a show. But five is my lucky number, so I’m quite excited to turn 50.”

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.”
