Celine Dion

Mom to be Celine Dion is relaxing and doing "almost nothing" to make sure she has a very smooth pregnancy after trying to conceive for over a year. The superstar at age 42, announced she is pregnant with twins yesterday, following a successful sixth attempt at in-vitro fertilisation. Celine is admitting her determination to give her nine-year-old son, Rene Charles, siblings has been a exhausting experience and she needed constant reassurance about the news in the first few weeks of her pregnancy. She tells Le Journal de Montreal, "They were truly great emotions after all our efforts. My doctors had to constantly reassure me. I (wanted) to see the babies. Each week I had sonograms. I heard their heart beats." "I feel like I’ve been pregnant (for) more than a year. I never gave up .. But I can tell you that it was physically and emotionally exhausting." Celine is also promising take life easy as she can. She says, "It’s stressful but I’m relaxing. I look at my little belly. I do almost nothing. If you tell me I have to stay in bed, I will stay in bed until November, when the babies are born. To bring them into the world, there’s nothing more important than that. It’s incredible. "We will have a beautiful family nest full of love." The star is expected to head back to Las Vegas next year . She adds, "There are no accomplishments bigger than (being a mom). The trophies and the money, that doesn’t give meaning to life and that doesn’ t give you true happiness. A baby - yes."
