The loving mother added that she has been blossoming since she brought him into the world as she watched him grow.
She also commended him for his intelligence, generosity, courage, and sensitivity and encouraged him to follow his heart so that his dreams could manifest.

Celine Dion Went Through Fertility Operations Before Birthing Her Sons
Being a proud mom to three adorable sons, the 53-year-old singer went through some fertility issues before she could conceive.
After her marriage to her ex-manager, René-Angélil, also her late husband, she gave birth to her first son in 2001. However, she had to endure two operations to boost her fertility.
René-Charles, like his mom, became a singer, but he focused on hip hop. He was pretty good at it, but unfortunately, he doesn’t use his Soundcloud account anymore.
Several years after having her first son, Dion had issues with pregnancy which led to a miscarriage. She revealed this in an interview with ABC News and was reported by Hollywood Life.
Fortunately for her, she was blessed with twins Eddy and Nelson Angélil in 2010. She named Eddy after her producer Eddy Marnay and named Nelson after Nelson Mandela, the former president of South Africa.

The Best-Selling French Artist Of All Time Cancels Show Due To Medical Emergency
In May 2021, Dion announced her plans for her concert residency, which would be her third in Las Vegas. It was titled “Celine.”
The Blast reported the event was set to span ten days, although she added a few more dates because the pre-sale tickets were in high demand.
Unfortunately, she couldn’t go ahead with her plans as she could not rehearse appropriately due to severe and consistent tremors in her muscles.
As a result, she had to cancel her debut performance for her Las Vegas concert residency. The whole concert series, which was meant to start with a show at Resorts World, had to be postponed.
Dion was devastated about not being able to show up for her fans. At the time, there was no precise reason as to what caused the tremors, but health professionals treated her.
The “My Heart Will Go On” apologized to her numerous fans for this unfortunate turn of events and hoped to get better as soon as possible by prioritizing her health.
Fans from all over supported the classical music star throughout the ordeal and her concert partners. They wished her a speedy recovery and sent their love.
