Celine Dion is pregnant with twins


Canadian singer Celine Dion is reportedly 14 weeks pregnant – with twins! The mother of one (son is Rene Charles, 9) has been through a vigorous and rough journey to fulfill her wish of extending her family.

The 42-year-old went through a grueling six in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments before successfully conceiving. The process, which has taken a year, was difficult, Celine says.

“I feel like I’ve been pregnant more than a year,” Celine told French language newspaper Le Journal De Montreal. “I never gave up. But I can tell you that it was physically and emotionally exhausting.”

Now that she is pregnant, is still seems the news is good to be true.

“My doctors had to constantly reassure me. I [wanted] to see the babies,” she told PEOPLE. “Each week I had sonograms. I heard their heartbeats.

“It’s stressful but I’m relaxing,” she adds. “I look at my little belly. I do almost nothing.”

“If you tell me I have to stay in bed, I will stay in bed until November, when the babies are born. To bring them into the world, there’s nothing more important than that. It’s incredible.”

Another celebrity who has recently announced her pregnancy is Kelly Preston.

Other celebrities whose pregnancies we have reported on include Helena Bonham Carter and Courteney Cox Arquette and Marcia Cross, both of whom tried IVF.
