Canadian songstress Celine Dion gave birth on Saturday to twin boys, after only 33 weeks of pregnancy. Â Dion, 42, was admitted to St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach a week earlier than planned after she showed signs of going into labor. Â The twins were delivered by Caesarean and are both believed to be healthy.
The hospital visit was not without drama, however, as another pregnant woman at the hospital has filed a complaint after being removed from her room when Dion arrived early and no room was available. Â No doubt the hospital’s argument will be that Dion required a private room in order to keep away the prying eyes of those who would take photos and sell them to the tabloids, but it’ll be interesting to see how they settle the matter with the other mother, who also had the right to stay in her private room.
Celine Dion pregnant with twins! The Canadian songstress and husband Rene Angelil have announced they are expecting twin babies after six in-vitro fertilization attempts. Dion and Angelil already have one child together, 9-year-old son Rene-Charles.
A rep for Celine Dion confirmed the singer is pregnant with twins in a press statement on Sunday. Rene Angelil told People he and Dion are “ecstatic” over the babies on the way. “Celine is just hoping for a healthy pregnancy. She was hoping for one baby and the news we are having two is a double blessing.”
Celine Dion has long dreamed of expanding her family with a new baby. Dion became pregnant last summer after another in-vitro attempt, but had a miscarriage only a couple of weeks into the pregnancy. The Grammy Award-winning singer said she would keep trying to get pregnant “until it works.”
Dion and Angelil expect to find out the gender of the twins on the way next month. Congrats to the happy couple on the wonderful news!
