Though her recent in vitro fertilization treatment was unsuccessful, Celine Dion and her family are upbeat and ready to try, try again for a second child.
“I feel strong and honestly, we’re very blessed,” Dion, 41, tells Access Hollywood in a new interview. “We have a wonderful child, we’re extremely happy.”
The singer says she’s not daunted by the difficulties she’s faced in having a second baby. “It’s not like, ‘Oh my god, she’s not pregnant and she’s depressed,’ ” she continues. “You know how it works. We are great. We hope for the best, we hope to get pregnant. If it happens, it happens.”
And she’ll be assisted by familiar faces. “We are going back to the same people, the same doctor in New York,” says the singer.
Dion and husband René Angélil, 67, also have the go-ahead from son, Rene-Charles, 8.
“When we announced to him that we were pregnant and then it didn’t work out, he said, ‘Wasn’t it supposed to be 100 percent sure?’ ” Dion reveals. “I said, ‘It was 100 percent, but it’s nature and it didn’t work out.’ And he was looking at me and he said, ‘Are you going to try again?’ I said, ‘Yeah, we are going to try again.’ He knows exactly what we are doing, so he’s great.”
Up next for Dion, aside from working on her family, is the release of the new concert film, Celine: Through the Eyes of the World, which is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2010. The film includes footage of the singer both onstage and behind the scenes.
