This isn’t the musician’s first encounter with the medical community. Rene Angelil, her spouse, had been diagnosed with cancer multiple times. In 1999, he was diagnosed with throat cancer and had surgery. The condition resurfaced, and he had to have surgery again in 2013.
Rene’s cancer reappeared only a year after his second procedure. His wife revealed at the time that physicians had no way of knowing how long her spouse would live. Whenever he became ill, she would put her work on hold to care for Rene.
She said that being calm for the sake of her family was difficult, but she realized she had to be tough for all. Rene’s dying desire was to die in her arms, and the music producer died of natural causes in 2020.
Celine and Rene were married from 1994 until his death, and they had three sons: Rene-Charles Angelil, the oldest, and Nelson and Eddy Angelil, twins. The singer has stated that the three have stood up and are willing to back her up.
Celine has a special relationship with her three boys. The singer stated that having kids absolutely transformed her life. Nothing, she remarked, could ever compare to raising children and realizing she had three of them at home.
On Mother’s Day, May 8, the “That’s The Way It Is” singer shared a snapshot of her three sons on Instagram. Celine was shown seated with her three boys spread out about her. A pink cake with candles stood in front of the performer.
In the description, she devoted the picture to all the moms throughout the world who were unable to spend Mother’s Day with their family or who did so in the midst of awful tragedies. She praised all moms for their courage and commitment.
Celine finds courage in her sons, despite the fact that things appear grim at the time. Her boys clearly adore her, and they will go to any length to guarantee she has what she requires in this difficult time.
