Celine Dion says being a mom is ‘a privilege’ as she poses with her three sons in sweet Mother’s Day photo


She is the mother of three sons from her marriage to the late d Rene Angelil.

And on Sunday, Celine Dion shared a rare photo of all of them together as she celebrated Mother’s Day.


The French-Canadian superstar posted a snap of herself surrounded by her boys and the family’s three dogs as they posed on a large white blanket outdoors. 

In the accompanying caption, Celine, 53, wrote: ‘Who’s having the best day today, me or the kids?’

She then added: ‘What a privilege it is to be a mom!

‘Happy Mother’s Day! Enjoy every moment… Can it get any better than that? To be continued… All my love, Celine xx…’

The singer is mom to Rene-Charles, 20, and 10-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy

In January, the Heart Will Go On hitmaker had marked the fifth anniversary of her beloved husband’s passing. 

Celine was married to Angelil, her manager, from 1995 to his death from cancer at the age of 73.

On January 14, she posted a heartfelt tribute to him alongside a close-up photo of the two of them holding hands.

‘René, it’s been 5 years already… There’s not one day that we don’t think about you,’ she wrote. 

‘You are in our hearts and in our lives forever. We love you, Celine, René-Charles, Nelson and Eddy xx…’ 

Meanwhile, René-Charles has followed in his famous mother’s musical footsteps, dropping his debut hip hop EP in late January.

Celine proudly shared a link to her first-born’s new music recorded by the 20-year-old and gushed about him on her Instagram Story.

‘I’m so proud of my son,’ she wrote. ‘My love for him is so strong, and it touches me deeply that one of his passions is also one of mine.’ 

Celine also posted a loving tribute to Rene-Charles the same month on the occasion of his 20th birthday on January 25.

She reflected on how his birth had made her dreams of being a mother come true and how fast two decades have passed.

In her post, she told her first born: ‘Go out there and embrace life, and remember to never stop believing in yourself, because I believe in you. 

‘Remember also that your father is always watching over you and guiding you. We love you so much….’ 

Dion and Angelil, both from Quebec, first met when she was just 13.

He was a 39-year-old music manager still married to his second wife when he decided to devote himself to making her a star.

They started a relationship in 1988, three years after his divorce, but waited another six years before marrying due to sensitivity about how their romance would be publicly perceived. 

Angelil succumbed to throat cancer on January 14, 2016, two days before his 74th birthday.

He was honored by the government of Quebec with a ‘national funeral’ at Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal.
