Expecting twins who are due in November after her sixth in vitro fertilization treatment, the singer admitted, 'I never gave up. But I can tell you that it was physically and emotionally exhausting.'
Celine Dion has been blessed with her second pregnancy after undergoing her sixth in vitro fertilization treatment and acupuncture. The 42-year-old sensational singer, who is still 14 weeks along, is doing everything her doctors advised her to, so that she can insure the birth of healthy twins.
"I feel like I've been pregnant more than a year," the "My Heart Will Go On" hitmaker, who will find out the gender of the twins next week, told Le Journal de Montreal. "I never gave up. But I can tell you that it was physically and emotionally exhausting."
Although having unsuccessful in vitro fertilization several times, Celine has never given up to try for a second baby. Her husband Rene Angelil said, "Everyone knows that Celine has guts and is determined. These treatments were truly hard on my wife's body. It wasn't simple at all."
"There were truly great emotions after all our efforts," Celine further shared about her struggle which included traveling from her Florida home to New York for months of treatments and also turning to acupuncture from a Montreal-based specialist.
"My doctors had to constantly reassure me. I [wanted] to see the babies. Each week I had sonograms. I heard their heart beats," Celine further revealed. "It's stressful but I'm relaxing. 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," Celine continued. "We will have a beautiful family nest full of love."
Celine Dion, who already has 9-year-old son Rene-Charles also through the embryo transfer, is set to kick off a new Las Vegas show next year but reveals that being a mom is her main priority. Celine claimed, "There are no accomplishments bigger than [being a mom]. The trophies and the money, that doesn't give meaning to life and that doesn't give you true happiness. A baby - yes."
