While turning 50 is certainly a big one, Celine Dion has been racking up milestones for more than three decades. From the tender age of 12, the star set out on a journey that saw her writing future hits with her family, competing in singing competitions and ultimately landing a career-making tour with her future husband and manager, the late René Angélil. As fans reminisce about her years of stardom on this major birthday, Celine's management team took to Facebook to do the same.
Sharing an retrospective video of the Quebec native on the social platform, the team dedicated the post to their beloved boss: " HAPPY 50th BIRTHDAY CÉLINE ! From the very first song written with her Mom and brother, we take a look back at some of the precious moments in Céline's personal and professional life. Make sure you comment below to wish Céline a Happy Birthday! See link in bio ! - Team Céline
They also took to Instagram to look back on Celine as a child, dolled up in a pale pink dress:

The mother of René-Charles, 17, and seven-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy, has lived most of her life in the spotlight, so fans clearly adored this sweet, rarely seen moment. One loyal follower commented "our hearts will go on!", while another took a moment of gratitude, writing, "Happy Birthday, Celine!! Today, I am grateful you were born!"
Celine's mom, Therese Dion, celebrated her own birthday just ten days ago, turning 91 on Mar. 20. Of course, the GRAMMY winner had a sweet message to share with her lovely mother, with whom she spent a lot of time writing music with as a child. "Happy Birthday, Mom! You are an infinite source of comfort and inspiration. I love you, Céline xx... : @denisetruscello".
The singer has unfortunately been going through some health issues lately, with weeks of Las Vegas show cancellations due to a flu and then for minor ear surgery to correct a hearing problem. But we hope for Celine's quick mend so she can ring in her 50th year with the style, grace and generosity that she has always exuded. And let's not forget – she has another album on the way!
