Celine Dion has had a run of ill health causing her to step away from the limelight and seize performing recently, but she’s not alone in her struggles.
The adored artist has been recovering after revealing she’s been dealing with “severe and persistent muscle spasms”.
However, as she continues to nurse herself back to health, her three children, twins Nelson and Eddy, 11, and René-Charles, 21, are lending her support.
While she rarely shares photos of her children, she’s incredibly proud of all three of them. Her youngest is still at school, while Rene has forged a successful music career of his own.
On Mother’s Day this year, Celine celebrated her children with a rare group snapshot posted on Instagram.
In the image, the star was flanked by her brood who all beamed for the camera and kept their famous mom close.
Alongside her most recent photo with her boys, she wrote: “This Mother’s Day, I feel very fortunate to be able to be with my children, and I think about mothers in Ukraine and around the world who have lost their children.
“For those mothers who constantly worry about how to keep their children safe… and for those mothers who devote every ounce of their energy just to provide their children with the bare necessities of life.
“These mothers truly are the courageous ones, and I dedicate this Mother’s Day to all of them. We pray that they will find peace and comfort in their families. – Celine xx…”
Earlier this year, her children helped Celine to create a life-size baby elephant statue, all for a very important cause – to raise awareness and support for elephant welfare and conservation projects.
It was a difficult journey to motherhood for Celine, who shares her offspring with her late husband, René Angelil.
They tried for six years to conceive before resorting to IVF to have their firstborn.
The couple went on to try for a second child and tragically suffered a miscarriage before welcoming twins Eddy and Nelson in 2010, who were named after Nelson Mandela and Eddy Marnay.
