Céline Dion Says Late Husband René Angélil Is “Watching Over” Their Twins in 10th Birthday Tribute
Celine Dion knows that her late husband's heart will go on for her twins.
Her longtime partner René Angélil died in 2016 at the age of 73 after battling throat cancer, but the singer is sure he's still on the lookout for her three children.
Celine celebrated the 10th birthday of her twin sons on Friday, October 23rd with an emotional Instagram post that promised that her father would "watch" over her.
The 52-year-old wrote: "Nelson and Eddy, you have brought so much joy, love and laughter into our lives every day for the past 10 years."
She added, "You make me, your big brother and your father, who will be sure to watch over you, so very proud. Happy birthday my beautiful boys! We love you so much."
Her 19-year-old son René-Charles Angelil was also a fashion icon when she signed the "Mama, RC and Papa" note, as RC rarely publishes articles for its own account.

Her Instagram gallery featured pictures of the boys playing in the fall foliage then and now.
Celine, who married René in 1994, said goodbye to her show in Las Vegas in August 2014 to take care of René when he fell ill. Before he died, she said to people, "We lived in hope and we knew there was no hope. There were times when I was very, very scared and he wrote to me, 'The end is near, I feel it . '"
A year after he died, she said it was too early to go out with anyone else.

"He is the love of my life. It is very difficult for me to see myself with another person," said Celine. "We have feelings and emotions that come and go. And it's always with him. When I sing, it's with him. When I hug my children, it is for him and it is with him. I took my time to mourn, and I'm still mourning. "
In the past few years she has admitted feeling lonely at times in the absence of her husband. She said, "I miss being touched, I miss being hugged, I miss being said, 'You are beautiful.' I miss what a friend and what a husband would do. "
But her healing closed when she felt more grounded in 2019 when Celine released her twelfth English album Courage. The five-time Grammy winner also shared what she learned about loss and love through her family tragedy.
"I feel so powerful and responsible and grounded and happy," she told Good Morning America. "I think of René, who gives me so much strength, strength and determination and who takes on even more responsibility."
Another nugget of Celine's wisdom: "You cannot stop living and move forward."
