Céline Dion is one of the most famous and perhaps most beloved artists in the world. The Canadian singer and businesswoman broke through in the 1980s when she won the Eurovision Song Contest and has reached an iconic place in history of music ever since.
Songs like ”My Heart Will Go On”, ”All By Myself” and ”Because You Loved Me” will forever be known as some of the world’s most powerful ballads.
In 1994 Céline Dion married her manager, René Angélil. Together they had two boys — twins Eddy and Nelson Angélil. But almost two years ago, the family lost their beloved dad. He died at home in Las Vegas at 73 years old.
Recently, Céline posted new pictures of herself and their boys on social media — and they are so wonderful. They were taken by big brother René-Charles Angélil, 16, to celebrate the twins’ seventh birthday.
The love story of Céline and René goes back a long time. It was actually René who discovered Céline’s magical voice when she was only 12, in 1980. They began a relationship in 1987 and in 1991 they were engaged. Three years later they married in Montreal, Canada, and in 2000 they renewed their vows in Las Vegas.
René’s belief in Céline and her career was so strong that he remortgaged his house to finance her first record.
René stood by his love through thick and thin and they went on to have three children together. They had their first son in 2001. In 2007, they felt that something was missing — they wanted their son to have a sibling. They went public with the news that they were trying IVF.
Their first pregnancy via IVF resulted in a miscarriage, but they kept trying – and the 7th attempt became a blessing. Céline was pregnant with twin boys. At the time, she had a tour booked only 5 months later.
There was love in the air when the twins were born seven years ago!
Céline was on the cover of a well known magazine in Canada, where she described how proud she was of her family.
Here’s the family today.
They lost their father René in 2014, after a long battle with cancer.

It’s been 7 years since the twins were born, and they seem to have inherited showbiz genes from their parents!

On their 7th birthday Céline wrote a heartfelt Instagram post:

The photos were taken by big brother René-Charles on the twins’ 7th birthday party, which had a Michael Jackson-theme!
I’m sure dad René is proud of his beautiful family! Share this if you also love Céline Dion!
