Celine Dion has been admitted to a hospital in West Palm Beach, Florida to prevent the early delivery of her twin boys.
Here’s what the PR department of the hospital said: “Ms. Celine Dion has been admitted to St. Mary’ s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Florida for observation at the recommendation of her doctors. She has been admitted to prevent the early delivery of her babies which is a fairly common clinical practice for mothers of twins. This is done to ensure the patient can be in close contact with their doctors and clinical resources, leading up to their birth.
“Celine and Rene have placed the health of their babies as their highest priority. Recently, rumors have circulated that Ms. Dion has made certain demands of St. Mary’ s Medical Center regarding the birth of her children. All of these rumors are false. At no time did Ms. Dion or her husband make any special demands or requests of the hospital. She is not scheduled at any predetermined date for her delivery. She has not requested or selected any particular staff or accommodations not available to other patients. The patient is being treated as any other OB patient who comes to St. Mary’ s Medical Center. Although the family did not ask us to do so, the hospital has chosen to enhance our security efforts during this time for the convenience and safety of all our patients and their families within this same area of our facility.
“We look forward to the day of Ms. Dion’s delivery of her twins. During this time, we ask the public and the media respect the privacy of all of our patients and their families at our hospital.”
Celine, 42, and her husband, Rene Angelil, 48, have a 9-year-old son, Rene Charles.
