Céline Dion Couldn’t Tell Her Twins Apart

Céline Dion Couldn’t Tell Her Twins Apart

After welcoming her fraternal twin boys at a Florida hospital on October 10, Céline Dion had a hard time telling them apart! In an attempt to learn the difference between her two new sons, the 42-year-old singer used colour coded hats, but eventually lost track of who was who when the hats got mixed up.

“They’re not identical at all,” she told Larry King. “When they were born, they were actually separate, but in their two little homes. But I couldn’t see the difference.”

I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh, and we don’t even have names. I’m going to say Baby A, Baby B for how long?’ I was like confused, ‘Who’s Baby A?’ This is where we mixed the hats. ‘Oh, my God, Baby A is now Baby B, and B is A’. We were all confused.

The baby confusion lasted over a week while Céline and her husband of 15-years, René Angélil, struggled to decide on names for their new boys.

“After coming home, René says, ‘I know how important choosing names (is). It’s such a responsibility to choose names. We have to have names,’” explained Céline. “I said, ‘I know, I know’. So after about a week or so, we couldn’t take it anymore, so we sat down. We said, ‘OK, it’s going to be our two heroes here, Nelson and Eddie‘.”

The proud mom recently chatted with Hello! magazine about life with her newborns: “They’re feeding every two hours now. It’s going well. I don’t get a lot of sleep, yes, for sure I’m tired, but that’s what I want.”

Céline and René are also parents to 9-year-old René-Charles.

    Maybe that’s why she waited a while to give them names.

    They were born on October 23, not on October 10.

    BS! even newborn AND fraternal you can always tell them apart. In my case, (in general in the Netherlands) when I had my fraternal twin boys, the doctors were asking what the name is going to be, SECONDS AFTER they pulled the first one. The same for the second. Today, I wouldnt imagine the first one having the name of the other one. It simply doesnt suit him. But think if I would have said a name that wouldnt suit them :/.
    However, in Denmark, you have up to 3 months to release the name birth certificate, and if the kid is still unnamed after 6 months he/she will automatically be named after the queen (Margrete)/prince(Henrik) of Denmark. :)

    Most new borns look alike. Fraternal twins are different and will not be confused. Celine forgot her glasses.

    not very creative in the name decision. Eddy Nelson? after all that time, is it
    all they could think of? can’t tell them apart ? can’t give them a name ? weird. They had years of fertility treatments and years of frozen embryos…but ..no names?

    If they really are having that hard of a time telling them apart, it seems to me that they may be identical twins. It is a common misconception that two placentas means that the twins are non-identical (dizygotic). If the monozygotic (1 cell) egg divides early enough, the arrangement of the placentas and the embryonic sacs are indistinguishable from that of fraternal twins.There are actually four types of identical twins depending upon when the original fertilized egg divides. 1. Dichorionic/Diamniotic: If the zygote divides days 1-3, each zygote will have their own sac and placenta. 2. Monochorionic/Diamniotic: If the zygote divides days 4-8, the zygotes will share the same placenta but will have their own amniotic sac. 3. Monochorionic/Monoamniotic: If the zygote divides days 9-12, they will share the placenta and the amniotic sac. 4. Conjoined Twins: The zygote divides after the 12th day, the embryonic disc is already formed and the division is incomplete. The only way to be certain as to fraternal vs identical based on placenta and sac presentation is by having genetic testing.
