Celine Dion is due to have twin boys in two months (update: photo of pregnant Celine!)

fp_4667238_dion_celine_cjny
We haven’t heard from Celine Dion in some time. She’s still pregnant after many heartbreaking attempts, and her husband lets us know that she’s healthy and doing well. She isn’t even in the hospital, contrary to reports, and is a full seven months into her pregnancy. Celine and her husband Rene Angelil confirm that she’s having twin boys! In May they announced that they were expecting twins and now they’re confirming a story from Star that they’re having twin boys! Good for them. The boys will join Celine and Rene’s son, Rene-Charles, 9. It’s thought that the twins were conceived using embryos left over from when Celine underwent IVF for Rene ten years ago.

Celine Dion – and the twin boys she is expecting in November – are just fine, thank you very much.

Recent reports in a French tabloid claiming that the singer was rushed to the hospital following pregnancy complications are “completely fabricated,” Dion’s rep tells PEOPLE.

“She’s never been in the hospital – her pregnancy continues to be healthy and she feels fantastic.”

In fact, Dion has so far gained 33 lbs., and has continued with the acupuncture treatments she has credited with helping her have a successful pregnancy.

Dion, 42, who will return to Las Vegas for a new show at Caesars Palace next year, has been following doctors’ orders to take it easy as she heads into her final two months.

“As with most women expecting multiples, her doctor wants her to stay off her feet as much as possible as she finishes her pregnancy,” says her rep.

During what has been a very joyful time, Dion and husband/manager Rene Angelil were distressed by the reports of complications.

“They’ve gotten calls from friends worried that something is wrong. To be so happy and then to get these calls, it’s been upsetting for them when they are in such a good place,” says her rep.

“Their son Rene-Charles started the new school year last week, Celine’s feeling great, and she and Rene are excited to meet the twins – they just can’t wait.”

The last time we heard from Celine was June, when she said that she was exhausted and felt like she had been pregnant for over a year. It sounds like things are picking up for her especially now that she’s in the home stretch. Those boys are going to have a lot of love around them. They’re also going to have an awesome place to play when they get older. Check out the huge waterpark at Celine and Rene’s estate in Florida. It’s got one of those “lazy river” type circular pools with a current that carries you around. Can you imagine?

Congratulations to Renee and Celine and we’ll surely be seeing photos of those babies in time for their first Christmas.

Update: here’s a photo of pregnant Celine with her family on the cover of a French Canadian magazine. She looks great and I love that she’s not wearing any makeup! [via Huffington Post]

    I luv Celine! She’s an amazing singer and performer!!! I wish her and her family all the best!

  2. Rita says:

    Celine is one of those people that simply brightens my day when she’s in the news. She’s just a wonderful person with mountains of good karma. She’s one of very few celebrities whose karisma has a hold on me. I wish and hope for her all good things.

  3. Jessie says:

    Wow she’s due at the same time as me! I know exactly what she means by feeling pregnant forever! Lol Best of luck to her and her family :)

  4. canadianchick says:

    Good luck with a healthy labour and delivery,Celine, and good luck to you also Jessie. She’ll be busy with 3 boys, I’m sure nannies will help.

  5. chris says:

    Best of luck to her but let me assure everyone, those embryos were not from her cycle 10 years ago. They wouldn’t be of any use at this point, particularly given that they were from a woman who at the time was in her 30s and had serious fertility issues. I don’t know where those embryos came from, but they certainly weren’t from that cycle.

  6. KsGirl says:

    Congrats to Celine – this story makes me happy. :)

  7. paranel says:

    NICE HOUSE.

  8. Novaraen says:

    With twins she will more than likely have them at 8 months, rather than 9. Most twin pregnancies don’t go full term. I had mine at 8 months and they told me that was the norm. So she’s actually due in about a month. :)

    Go Celine!

  9. LindaR says:

    I don’t believe she is pregnant. If she is seen with a baby belly, it’s made of foam rubber. Her litte babettes are currently cooking in another woman and will make their appearance at the appropriate time.

  10. Jessie says:

    Thanks Canadianchic :)

  11. Mistral says:

    Good luck Celine! Her husband is super creepy, but whatever.

    As for the whole issue of her eggs and whether or not her babies are cooking in a surrogate, I’m not that curious. I am curious about how long eggs can stay, frozen, though! Chris, is it really not possible to use eggs that have been frozen that long? Why or why not and how do you know this? (I’m not calling you out, I really am curious).

  12. chris says:

    Mistral, I don’t mind you asking. I used to work in the field (not as a doctor), so I know a little about infertility.

    No one knows how long embryos can be frozen because the vast majority of people do a frozen cycle within a few years after the original fresh cycle. Doctors just don’t do cycles on 10 year old embryos and if these were from that cycle, it is literally one for the record books. US clinics may be more inclined to do it, but in Europe, the upper limit is generally 5 years. There’s some suggestion that older frozen embryos aren’t as viable, but it’s difficult to tell, in part because even under the best circumstances (a fertile woman in her 20s with no male factor issues who makes perfect embryos), there’s only a 25% success rate (sometimes higher at better clinics, but again, keep in mind this success rate is with very young patients) with frozen embryos. So you can imagine how most frozen cycles go, considering that the average fertility patient doesnt fit into the above scenario. Also, even with a patient doing everything she can do, there’s some small chance of lab error.

    Someone like Celine (who seems to be a good person and who clearly adores her son) with years of fertilty issues and multiple failed cycles is the toughest kind of patient to get even good fresh embryos from. Freezing embryos damages them. Some won’t survive the thaw. The likelihood is that if she had embryos to freeze from that cycle, they were crap.

    Similarly, if someone tells a patient that they can freeze unfertilized eggs and use them in the future, that’s unproven, even more so than embryos that have been frozen for a long time.

    I imagine that the rumor about the embryos being from a ten-year old cycle is designed to keep people from knowing that she’s done many cycles or that she used an egg donor and I can totally understand why she would feel that way. At a certain point, most doctors will cut a patient off and tell them no more cycles unless they move onto donor eggs because it’s fruitless to continue and you start risking the health of the woman. Still, with her money, she could have gone to as many doctors as she wanted I would imagine. I can believe that with the right clinic and and a ton of luck, even at her age and with her history, she used her own eggs.

    I wish her luck. She seems like a great mother.

  13. i wish celine the very best of luck! these last weeks of a twin pregnancy are very, very exhausting. if she has indeed gained that much weight-good for her- she will start banging into things with her extended tummy. i did that a lot the last weeks of my twin pregnancy – it is just optically difficult at that point to navigate things correctly!

    i also think that with the type of care she is getting- she may have a great chance at a near term pregnancy. while it is true twin pregnancies often are of a shorter duration- many can make it to 36/37 weeks- and that is great for the babies!

    hope she and her family are blessed with safe deliveries and healthy children.

  14. OMG says:

    So happy for her.

  15. Threewolfy says:

    Well, she doesn’t need makeup. She looks lovely and has beautiful skin!

  16. Kate says:

    Such a wonderful picture! Having twins is an amazing experience and you feel kind of special…mine are now six and I have a 6-month-old baby as well. I really wish her health and lots of joy with her baby boys.
