The names have sentimental meaning for the Canadian songstress and her hubby.
Eddy is named after Eddy Marnay, who produced Céline’s first five records.
“He was like a father to her,” says the singer’s rep. “Eddy is a major influence in both Céline and René’s lives.”
Twin brother Nelson is named in honor of Nelson Mandela, who the couple met while Céline was touring a couple of years ago.
“René said that in just the few minutes they were able to spend with him, they were impressed by the human being he is,” her rep reveals.
It was a difficult decision, but in the end the proud parents just followed their hearts: “Céline and René want their children to be inspired by their names, because they were so inspired by these men.”
