Rene Angelil is speaking out about the recent birth of his twin boys with wife Celine Dion.
Here’s what the proud papa had to share with Canada’s ETalk (in an interview airing Monday and Tuesday, October 25-26):
On their reaction to the births: “When Saturday at 11:11 came, and they showed us the first baby that was crying, we were crying. It was a very emotional moment, and even though we didn’t speak to each other, we were both thinking about the time it took. We are very lucky, very privileged and very fortunate to have these boys.”
On the fraternal twins’ characteristics: “They do look alike but maybe they won’t look alike in a few months because they are not identical twins.”
On what older son Rene Charles, 9, thinks of his baby brothers: “He was very, very happy that it was boys. I remember a few months ago when his mom told him the day we would find out the sex of the baby, his reaction pointing to his mom’s belly was ‘I hope there’s not too many girls in there.’”
