Celine Dion expecting twin boys

Apparently Celine Dion and her husband René Angelil aren’t the kind of a couple who’d rather be surprised.

The superstar singer, 42, announced on her website that she and Angelil are expecting twin boys in November, making the couple’s 9-year-old son, Rene-Charles, a big brother twice over.

Dion announced she was pregnant with twins earlier this year after her sixth round of in vitro fertilization.

    I know this is practically sacrilegious to the Dion worshipers on this board but I totally agree with Coco. Nine years ago she truly behaved as if she was the first women to give birth. It was nauseating. I suppose not being a fan made her bragging behavior less tolerable. And Thersa, you can feel sad and bad for me all you want. I won't be checking back for any responses. Celine Dion is simply gross and disgusting. But that said I hope she has two healthy happy babies.

    Ewwww....and please don't make a huge deal of it like you did your last pregnancy and your 2 weddings. Big deal. she finally got knocked up! She acts like her giving birth is the 8th wonder of the world. Dogs have the same experience, Dion.

    What wonderful news! Congrats to her and her family. She went public with her IVF attempts, something many women can relate with. That is commendable.

    Women I know who have gone through the expense, anxieties, and stresses of IV in order to have children have invariably answered the question “Why not just adopt” in the same way. It isn't only the desire to have children in the house but added to it is a powerful driving force - an overwhelming physical urge to be pregnant. It’s a primal, unrelenting, urge for some women. It’s something the body needs and it won’t be dissuaded until satisfied. Women for whom pregnancy comes easily have felt the urge but because her body responded quickly, that urge didn’t become quite so demanding. People who want a family but the women aren’t having this primal reaction are more open to the concepts and processes of adoption.

      I couldn't agree more. I was told at the age of 40 that I had less than a 5% chance of conceiving a child. I was devastated and tried IVF and IUI. Both failed and I couldn't believe that I would never get the chance to experience the miracle of pregnancy and the movements of my child in my womb. The thought of adoption came to me but I knew that it was difficult and costly to adopt as well. So my husband and I decided that at our age it was time to accept that we would never become parents. Now I'm 44 and 6 months pregnant with my own child! It just happened. I guess it was the right time and we couldn't be happier. To all the want-to-be Mamas, keep the faith! You'll never know what CAN happen unless you try and keep trying! And I'm very happy for Celine Dion too. When I heard that she was finally pregnant, I thought... you go girl, I'm finally pregnant too!

    I think it's wonderful she is having more babies. I can only imagine the heartbreak SIX invitro treatments must have been on her and her husband. It just goes to show that with faith and perseverance that anything is possible. Congratulations and best wishes to them all.

    Why didn't she just adopt? So many children need homes, and I would have loved to see her accept the fact that she could only have one precious child and then open her home (and $$$) to a child who needed her.

      I completely agree with your sentiment, but the bottom line is that adoption isn't for everyone. It should be...but it isn't. Unfortunately, a lot of people see adoption as "settling", and that's tragic. I think that people's recognizing that adoption isn't for them is better than putting children in a home where their new parents don't appreciate them for everything they are.

    She certainly can afford twins and all the in vitro fertility trips she needs. She is likely a great mother since she is so full of love and joy. I hope" she hangs it up " after this last incubation period. She is getting on in years to carry multiples.

    Congratulations to the whole family! They have wanted more children for so long and all their fans are thrilled for them. They are very hands-on parents who love their son very much and I'm sure they will be great parents to the 2 new boys who will join them in a few months.
