Céline Dion has never shied from speaking out on her fertility struggles, and the Canadian songstress has no plans to change that. While at Good Morning America, Dion, 41, who has been married to husband René Angélil since 1994, admitted, “I’ve always been an open book. My way for me to deal with my own situation is that I take one step at a time. It’s something very beautiful when you want to conceive and when you want to be parents again, when you want to be bless again.”
The singer, who has been undergoing In-Vitro Fertilization to conceive, also notes how important it is to connect with other women facing the same heartbreaking situation, adding, “And for me to share this is about also bonding with other women that are going through the same thing.”
Dion, who experienced a very similar and lengthy struggle – six years – trying to conceive the couples’ first child, son René-Charles, 9, says, “You know what? We had a miscarriage. We tried three more times. It did not work … We are trying again for the fifth try. It’s aboard right now. All aboard.” Dion also adds, “It would be extraordinary to try and make this love of the family grow more. But I have — I have — to try.”
Being a mother is something that is not taken lightly by Dion, saying, “I think we are very blessed to have the opportunity and a blessing to be a mother. I think when you are — when you have a child, it’s like there’s another heart that grows inside of you. You have this like second heart”
Céline, who plans to “keep trying until it works,” will be returning to Las Vegas to begin a new 3-year show at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace next March.
