Although there is no date set for the birth of her twins, Celine Dion has entered the hospital this morning under the recommendation of her doctors.
To ensure the safety of her unborn twin boys, Celine Dion, 42, has been admitted to a hospital in Florida this morning (Oct. 18) under the guidance of her physicians. In a statement the hospital says, “Ms. Céline Dion has been admitted to St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Florida, for observation at the recommendation of her doctors. She has been admitted to prevent the early delivery of her babies, which is the standard of care for any patient with twin pregnancy in this clinical setting.” This is strictly a preventive measure that allows Celine to have close contact with her doctors and clinical resources leading up to the birth of her baby boys.
Just last week, Celine’s rep and her husband Rene Angelil, 68, cleared up rumors that the singer was scheduled to have a C-section on Oct. 22 and that she was demanding “special” care from the hospital. Rene revealed that they do not have a date set for the babies’ birth and that “there is nothing scheduled.”
St. Mary’s Medical Center has backed up Rene’s statement and let the public know that Celine is being treated just like any other expectant mom under the hospital’s care. “Céline and René have placed the health of their babies as their highest priority. Recently, rumors have circulated that Ms. Dion has made certain demands of St. Mary’s Medical Center regarding the birth of her children. All of these rumors are false,” St. Mary’s confirms. “At no time did Ms. Dion or her husband make any special demands or requests of the hospital. She is not scheduled at any predetermined date for her delivery. She has not requested or selected any particular staff or accommodations not available to other patients. The patient is being treated as any other OB patient who comes to St. Mary’s Medical Center.”
The only thing that Celine and Rene, as well as their 9-year-old son Rene-Charles, are receiving from St. Mary’s at this time is privacy. “Although the family did not ask us to do so, the hospital has chosen to enhance our security efforts during this time for the convenience and safety of all our patients and their families within this same area of our facility. We look forward to the day of Ms. Dion’s delivery of her twins. During this time, we ask the public and the media respect the privacy of all of our patients and their families at our hospital.”
We hope that everything goes smoothly and that Celine and her babies are happy and healthy! We can’t wait to hear the good news!
