Celine Dion may be struggling with husband Rene’s health issues, but the mother of three took some time off at the happiest place on earth Wednesday (Oct. 14) to celebrate her twin boys’ fifth birthdays. The trio hung out with Mickey Mouse and enjoyed park rides at the Disneyland Resort in California.
The mom-of-three took some time off from her Las Vegas residency for the fun day out with her four-year-old sons Eddy and Nelson, who turn five on 23 October. Celine looked casual and relaxed in a grey top and jeans, paired with Converse and her hair tied back into a ponytail, while her sons looked adorable in matching T-shirts and baseball caps.
The family have faced a difficult couple of years after Celine’s husband René Angelil was diagnosed with throat cancer in December 2013. It is the second time the music manager has battled cancer, but sadly this time it appears René is fighting for his life.
The battle has clearly hit Celine hard, and she has admitted toUSA Today that although it has been difficult for their 14-year-old son René-Charles too see his father in poor health, the twins “don’t know their father in any other state”.
The My Heart Will Go On singer recently returned to her Las Vegas residency following a year off to care for her ailing husband, and has paid tribute to René by sharing home videos of her family while she performed at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
When Celine resumed her Las Vegas residency in August she said it was at the insistence of her husband, telling reporters: “I didn’t want to be here at first. I don’t need it. Don’t get me wrong, I love singing for people, but I have priorities.
“My three children and my husband wanted me to be here tonight.”
