Céline Dion's heart is going on...and is full. On Mother's Day, the legendary singer posted a photo on Instagram of her posing with her three sons—René-Charles, 20, and twins Nelson and Eddy, 10—and their three dogs.
"Who’s having the best day today, me or the kids? What a privilege it is to be a mom," Dion, 53, wrote in the loving caption. "Happy Mother's Day! Enjoy every moment…can it get any better than that?"
Dion ended her caption with, "To be continued," which makes us hopeful that she'll continue to share updates about her children. Dion had her sons with her late husband, René Angélil, who died in 2019 of cancer. They were married for 22 years, and knew each other for far longer—Dion met Angélil when she was an aspiring singer.
While Dion rarely shares photos of her children, when she does she's sure to accompany them with heartfelt messages. To mark the twins' 10th birthday, for example, Dion posted a letter alongside a side-by-side photo that showed how much they had grown.
"Nelson and Eddy, you have been bringing so much joy, love and laughter into our lives every single day for the past 10 years," Dion wrote. She said their father, Rene, was always with them. "You make me, your big brother and your Dad, who is for sure watching over you, so very proud. Happy birthday my beautiful boys! We love you so very much."
Similarly, for René-Charles's birthday last January, she wrote an encouraging message. "I’m so proud of the way you’re conducting yourself in life. You’re a true gentleman, and I want you to know that your father’s guidance continues to support and protect you…as I do," she said.
Dion is a proud mother—but her journey wasn't an easy one. She has been forthcoming about her struggles with infertility. She's previously spoken out about miscarriages and IVF.
"I think we are very blessed to have the opportunity and a blessing to be a mother,” she said in 2010, when René-Charles was 9, according to ABC News. “I think...when you have a child, it's like there's another heart that grows inside of you. You have this like second heart.” That same year, at the age of 42, Dion gave birth to healthy twin boys.
