Celine Dion and her three sons - René-Charles, Nelson and Eddy - have spent the past week in Paris as the Canadian singer prepares for her sold-out European tour. As soon as they touched down, the first thing they did was record a special message for French fans, which Celine later posted to Instagram.
Standing by their private plane, the My Heart Will Go On singer smiled and shouted "Bonjour Paris," as her sons grinned, with one of the twins joining in, shouting "Bonjour Paris" twice as Celine laughed while a voice behind the camera said "that's good!"
The five-year-old identical twins looked simply adorable in matching hats, jackets and gilets, while Celine dressed casually for the flight, wearing a long leopard print coat with her hair pulled back.
The singer recently opened up about her husband René Angélil's passing after a long battle with cancer, and how she broke the news to her youngest sons. She told ABC news that the Pixar film Up helped her to explain, saying: "Before I told them that their dad was not there ... I said, 'Do you remember the movie Up? They said, 'Yes, Ellie went up. You know with the balloons.' And I said, 'You know, today Papa went up.'"
She then took Nelson and Eddy to release balloons in honour of their father, and told People that she was proud of how she had handled the situation. She said: "I did not want to relate the passing to doctors and have them be afraid. It's the thing I'm most proud of."
The 48-year-old also opened up about her last moments with her husband, revealing that she reassured him about the children, saying: "'The kids are fine. I'm fine. I promise you we’re gonna be okay. Please leave in peace. I don’t want you to worry.'"
