This coming Dec. 17 marks 20 years since Celine Dion and René Angélil said “I do” at the Notre-Dame Basilica of Montreal, and the music power couple's anniversary is one that will certainly be celebrated across Canada.
Fans turned out in the hundreds to see the pair say their vows and have cheered on the unstoppable duo every year since.
Now, in honour of that milestone, we are looking back at the happy love story of this favourite Canadian couple in the new issue of Hello! Canada.
Theirs isn’t your traditional courtship: René was Celine’s manager for several years before they fell in love and married. They have gone on to raise three children together – René-Charles (“RC”), 13, and four-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy – while Celine's career, with René’s support, has flourished over the years.
And even though they are now dealing with René’s recovery from throat cancer, they are sure to get through it so long as they have each other. “His ordeal has brought us even closer. René and I are more in love than ever,” Celine, 46, said in the summer. “We complete each other.”
