Star: Celine Dion is expecting twin boys!

fp_1279337_ang_dion_celine_31_052208

Back at the end of May, Celine Dion announced that she and Rene Angelil were expecting twins. Celine has had struggles with IVF and has had one miscarriage, all of which she has been completely open about with the press. Her honesty about her and Rene’s struggles to conceive (for the second time) have always been so refreshing to me – she puts herself out there, while still being very classy about it. She makes you want to root for her. Star Magazine seems to want to root for her too – they are announcing – with no Celine-camp confirmation – that Celine is expecting twin boys:

Celine Dion is going to be surrounded by men! The “My Heart Will Go On” singer, who announced she’s expecting twins in November, is going to have two boys, Star has learned exclusively.

In May, Celine — who already has a 9-year-old son, René-Charles, with husband René Angélil, 68 — announced that she’s pregnant with two bundles of joy thanks to her sixth attempt at in-vitro fertilization.

Despite being in the older range of expectant moms — she’s 42 — Celine recently said that her pregnancy has been pretty typical.

“The first two months I really felt the classical symptoms — the morning sickness, hot flashes, nausea,” said the 42-year-old Canadian. “In a certain way, that reassured me, like a sign that my pregnancy was progressing. Now, everything is falling into place. I have a little belly.”

Celine also said that the entire family is readying for their new additions, but there’s one thing they won’t need: nannies!

“Too many people in the house disorient children,” said Celine, who has said she’ll turn to family if she needs help. “My only task is to make my children happy. And too bad if the house sometimes becomes a mess.”

Three cheers to that sentiment!

Is this true? Twin boys? It could be. There’s a 33% chance Star is right. The only thing that makes me think that Star got the inside scoop on this is that Star got the inside scoop on John Travolta and Kelly Preston’s pregnancy. Maybe Star has sources in some of the offices of fertility/IVF doctors? Maybe. Or maybe Star is just talking out of their asses. I do hope that Celine gets at least one girl, though. You know Celine’s daughter would be AMAZING.

    I would love it if she had a daughter, but congrats to her either way. besides, her son’s hair is so long in that picture, he could probably pass for a little girl at some point…

  2. RK says:

    I wish she was having a girl.

  3. bellaluna says:

    Good on her and her family! If this is true, that is. I read about her struggles with IVF, and it is so refreshing to have someone famous speak so honestly about IVF.

    I am so over others’ (AJ, JL, et al, I’m looking at you) silence or denials of IVF treatments. There’s no shame in wanting a child (or 2 or 3 or 4) to love and using IVF when you’re physically unable to do so naturally.

  4. Obvious says:

    Her son could pass for a girl at this point. He’s a beautiful child but with that hair and those baby blues….

  5. benny says:

    It’s nice that she’s open about the IVF. Some “celebrities” want us to think they are so perfect that they can even conceive naturally at 45 or whatever (because they’re super women, perfect in every way, including their unnatural fertility). So it’s nice that at least one famous woman out there tells it like it is.

    However, I think her husband is a little old to be having more kids. He’s what, 3 years away from his life expectancy? I usually believe older parents can still be good parents (maybe better, because wisdom can come from experience) but 68 is pushing it for me. If you’re old enough to be a great-grand-parent, you probably shouldn’t be having a new born baby. Just my opinion.

  6. anon says:

    Nerd alert- actually 25% chance they are right, since they could be BB, BG, GB, or GG. I don’t know why I remember these things from 10th grade biology, waste of my brain space that I could be using in many other ways.

  7. A.K.A. says:

    @anon

    ummm….isn’t BG & GB the same thing?

    :D

  8. Jen says:

    Is that her medal for being The Greatest Singer in the World??

    Hee hee…I kid, I kid.

    I was hoping she’d have at least one girl…can you imagine the level of wackitude? The outfits alone would have been works of wonder…ah, well. As long as they’re healthy, it’s all good. :-)

  9. Lizzard says:

    Actually anon, wouldn’t it be about 33% chance, GB or BG are basically the same thing, so either she’s having two boys, two girls, or one of each. that would be a 1/3 chance of getting it correctly, right?

  10. Duh says:

    Actually Anon, I think they were right with the 33% (last time I checked boy/girl twins were the same as girl/boy twins….)

  11. Jen D says:

    She’s completely out there, but I kind of love her.

  12. Cinderella says:

    Those kids will have one hell of a house to grow up in…private waterpark and all.

  13. TG says:

    I am happy for her but I wish women who wanted daughters wouldn’t take it out on their sons. Cut his hair already he looks ridiculous.

  14. Mrs Odie 2 says:

    I am happy for her. Infertility is heartbreaking and I don’t wish it on anyone (except maybe Michelle Duggar and Octomom). I don’t like long hair on boys. I’m old-fashioned that way. Nothing wrong with it, but not my preference. I also agree that her husband is too old to have babies. It is hard on young children to have a parent die, and they are virtually guaranteed to lose their dad before they are in their teens. Although maybe longevity runs in his family and he will live to be 90. In which case his kids will be 22. Still very young.

  15. Victoria says:

    HE’s a handsome boy but that hair is too long

  16. hellen says:

    She’s just so goofy sometimes but I can’t help liking her. I think her son needs a buzz cut, though.

  17. Jackson says:

    Congrats to her – I hope it’s true and I hope she has a healthy, happy pregnancy and all goes well. Now, her little boy’s hair…..hmmmm……cut it already!!!!!

  18. mslewis says:

    Celine’s son has short hair now. That photo must have been taken several months ago.

    I am so over others’ (AJ, JL, et al, I’m looking at you) silence or denials of IVF treatment.
    ———————————————————————–
    If Angelina had had IVF treatments, she would have said so!! Angelina got pregnant when Shiloh was about 16 months old (or less). Why in the world would she have had IVF treatments? Only the ragmags insist the pregnancy was IVF. I guess you’re one of the believers.

    I’m really happy for Celine and I hope she has two healthy babies, no matter the gender. (But a little girl would be awesome!!!)

  19. ctkat says:

    She’s totally kooky, but she does make you root for her. I am happy that she’s having a baby(ies) because she’s been open about the struggle of conceiving and because she seems to really enjoy being a mom.

  20. Rita says:

    It is entirely possible for people to have twins without any medical assistance or intervention you know? Especially people who have twins in their families (both AJ’s first cousin and Brad’s sister have twins) as do JLo and Marc’s immediate family members, and those who are older moms (JLo). After all multiples have been born for all of recorded history long before modern medical assisted fertility procedures existed.

    Both AJ and JLo have said time and time again they did not need to and indeed DID NOT resort to any type medical assistance for their twins, and with the money paid by tabloids for people’s stolen private medical records these days, if either had done so, then those records would have surfaced in some lowlife tabloid. Until and if the medical records surface refuting what AJ or JLo have said, then no one here has any reason to doubt either of these women. If anyone does so doubt these women without any reliable and accurate proof then they have some type of personal problem with the truth.

  21. Rita says:

    There is only one celebrity who can make me comment when I really have nothing to say and that is Celine Dion. She is the very essense of class and yes, I think beauty. I know that physically she might not be society’s image of beauty but for me, everything about says beautiful. All my prayers for two healthy and happy babies.

  22. irena NL says:

    Lovely! Too bad it’s not a girl and a boy. Best wishes in coming to term with two healthy boys.

  23. gee_gee says:

    So nice to comment on someone and not have the urge to be snarky (sometimes). Celine is so weird and over the top and out there. So happy for her. Bless.

  24. Maritza says:

    I hope she does have twins but a boy and a girl. Her son is beautiful but he needs a haircut asap.

  25. Tazina says:

    Since the announcement of twin boys didn’t come from Celine, it’s not believable. She will announce what she is having.

  26. Rita says:

    I imagine Star is just guessing as usual. All that is known is that she is expecting twins at this point and that news came from Celine herself. Knowing Celine she will tell the world all about the twins as she gets closer to her due date as she has always been very open. She really wanted more kids and I am happy for her.

  27. Camille says:

    Congrats Celine. :D
    I also do not get the obsession with having to have a girl. Boys can be quite lovely, believe it or not! :lol:

  28. A.K.A. says:

    @Rita,

    I totally agree with your first statement. I had twins naturally and there are no twins in neither mine nor my hubby’s family! My twins are fraternal (not identical) meaning two eggs. And so logically having fraternal twins has nothing to do with whether or not there are any twins on the hubby’s side of the family.It’s just the female body producing two eggs at the same time.
    Same for AJ & JLo, so whether Brad or Marc had any on their side made no difference in the odds of having twins in their case. I’m just saying this because I get the “Oh my goodness! Are there twins in your family? His? ” question asked all the time. :)

  29. I wish to have her twin boys.
    Her pictures posted in this blog are so beautiful.
    Thanks for this nice blog!

  30. ME says:

    She is so awesome! I will keep her in my prayers over the coming months that everything goes well.

  31. Ogechi says:

    CONGRATULATION Celine. God bless u.

  32. bored says:

    25% is correct… because half the permutations possible are boy/girl.

  33. canadianchick says:

    Congrats Celine-hope all will go well with pregnancy and birth. And Celine, put your feet up and rest, as much as I love your talent, I saw Montrealer Nikki Yanofsky in concert the other night and that mega-talented 16 year old will give you a run for your throne.

  34. Kim says:

    J Travolta said on his website that they were not having twins and Star claimed Brad and Angie were having twin girls. I still remember the cover w/ headline Shiloh can’t wait for her twin sisters. I’ll wait for Celene’s announcement.

  35. Jealec says:

    I’m Saint Thomas, I need to see pictures of her belly before she gives birth……..if she is pregnant, that I doubt. All those celebrities expecting babies are all in magazines with their bellies showing……..why not Mrs. Celine Dion?? Has she something to hide?

  36. Jealec says:

    Well……….If it’s true, congrats to the future parents.
