Celine Dion is just 14 weeks pregnant with twins, but she says her experience has been, “physically and emotionally exhausting.”Â In-vitroÂ fertilization Â can be very hard on a woman’s body!
According to People,
“I feel like I’ve been pregnant more than a year,” Dion, 42, whose previous IVF attempts had failed, told the French-languageLe Journal de Montreal. “I never gave up. But I can tell you that it was physically and emotionally exhausting.”
“Everyone knows that CÃ©line has guts and is determined,” adds husband, RenÃ© Angelil. “These treatments were truly hard on my wife’s body. It wasn’t simple at all.”
“My doctors had to constantly reassure me. I [wanted] to see the babies,” she says. “Each week I had sonograms. I heard their heart beats.”
“It’s stressful but I’m relaxing. I look at my little belly. I do almost nothing,” she says. “If you tell me I have to stay in bed, I will stay in bed until November, when the babies are born. To bring them into the world, there’s nothing more important than that. It’s incredible.”
Adds Dion: “We will have a beautiful family nest full of love.”
And though the singer, who plans to kick off a new Las Vegas show next year, says she loves her career, she’s realized that there’s an even higher priority in her life.
“There are no accomplishments bigger than [being a mom]. The trophies and the money, that doesn’t give meaning to life and that doesn’t give you true happiness,” she says. “A baby â€“ yes.”
Poor Celine…I hope the rest of her pregnancy goes well!!
