Celine Dion is pregnant with second child


Céline Dion may not return to perform in Las Vegas in 2010 because of her pregnancy.
Making good on her expressed desire to have more children, Céline Dion is pregnant.

A rep for the 41-year-old singer confirmed the news to various outlets saying, “Celine and René [Angélil] are very happy,” and “They are crazy in love over the news and … they are overjoyed.” A family friend also tells PEOPLE, “We learned this morning.” Herself the product of a family of 14, Dion only learned of her condition on Monday, reports Tuesday’s Journal de Montreal, after she and her husband, Angélil, 67, conceived with the help of a team of fertility doctors in New York. The couple’s one child together, son René-Charles, was born January 2001. The rep tells ET Canada he “starts his first day of private school today.” Angélil also has three other children from two previous marriages.

According to reports in the French language press, Dion, whose concert tour ended in March, took time off this spring to concentrate on becoming a mother again. She also visited the clinic of Dr. Zev Rosenwaks, the Manhattan-based fertility expert who helped with the birth of René-Charles. Quoting a previous interview the newspaper had conducted with Angélil, the Journal reports that “everything hinges on the pregnancy” in terms of Dion’s future professional plans — and that a pregnancy now could conceivably delay the singer’s scheduled return to Las Vegas in fall 2010.
