Celine Dion pregnant! The 42-year-old singer is carrying twins conceived via in vitro fertilization, and reports last week claimed that she had already set a date for her c-section; but as Famecrawler reported, that rumor was false.
Celine Dion says she’s going to let her pregnancy progress naturally for as long as possible, right up till her November due date. This pregnancy, with two boys, has gone smoothly for Dion, who has a 9-year-old son with husband René Angélil, but the babies were conceived just months after she suffered a miscarriage, according to Babble reports. In fact, it was Dion and Angélil’s sixth attempt at in vitro, after conceiving their son the same way. She delivered their son three weeks early.

Celine Dion’s representative has dismissed reports the pregnant singer is planning to deliver her twins early by Caesarean section – insisting the star would “never intentionally endanger her unborn children”. The “My Heart Will Go On” hitmaker is expecting twin boys with her partner Rene Angelil after a long struggle to conceive using in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments.
Reports have surfaced online suggesting Dion has picked a date for the birth and will deliver the babies on October 22 – weeks ahead of her due date next month. Angelil is adamant the stories are not true, telling People.com, “There is nothing scheduled. We do not have a date.”
Meanwhile, a rep for the singer insists such an early birth would not be in the babies’ best interests: “They (the doctors) want Celine’s pregnancy to go as long as possible, at least until the first week of November. She would never intentionally endanger her unborn children by scheduling a birth early like this…”
“Celine and her doctors are hopeful that she can continue her pregnancy as long as possible, and hope to get her to at least 37 weeks gestation to ensure the healthiest outcome for her children.” The spokesperson has also denied rumors Dion has infuriated hospital staff by handing them a long list of demands prior to the birth, adding, “It’s all false.”
