It’s been almost two months of anticipation, but we finally got a glimpse of Celine Dion and husband Rene Angelil‘s twin boys, Eddy and Nelson! In a new cover story for Canada’s Hello! Magazine, Celine, 42, and Rene, 68, introduce their adorable twins to the world! “They’re so cute, it’s incredible,” Celine says about the boys who were born on October 23. “When we look at them we can’t believe it, and to have them here at home – it’s all we could wish for.”
Celine is basking in mommyhood, even if she does have to stay up for all hours of night! “They’re feeding every two hours now,” she says. “It’s going well. I don’t get a lot of sleep, yes, for sure I’m tired, but that’s what I want.”
After spending years struggling with infertility and trying to give their 9-year-old son, Rene-Charles a sibling, Eddy and Nelson are Celine and Rene’s miracle babies! And that might explain why they named their little boys after some very inspirational people. “We met with Nelson Mandela and spent some time with him at his house when we started Celine’s world tour,” Rene says. “Eddy is an homage to Eddy Marnay,” referring to the songwriter that wrote Celine’s first five albums and passed away a few years ago. “He was like a father to me,” adds Celine.
We are so happy for Celine and can’t get over how cute her baby boys are! We hope Rene-Charles is having a wonderful time being a big brother!
