Tender moments from Celine Dion and René Angelil’s marriage

Celebrity marriages don’t typically last more than 20 years, but Celine Dion and René Angélil were not your typical celebrity couple. On Jan. 14, the singer and their three children — René Charles, 15, and five-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy — said goodbye to their beloved husband and father.

The family released a statement, saying "René Angelil, 73, passed away this morning at his home in Las Vegas after a long and courageous battle against cancer. The family requests that their privacy be respected at the moment; more details will be provided at a later time."

René and Celine's was a love that spanned decades, with both the singer and her husband — who share a 26-year age gap — remaining totally devoted to one another through thick and thin.

Celine, 46, and René, 73, have weathered more than a few storms together in the past, having struggled with René’s ongoing health issues as well as fertility treatments. Through it all they’ve persevered, no doubt thanks to their rock-solid relationship.

As we say goodbye to René, Hello! Online looks back at one of Canada’s greatest love stories.
