After everything Céline Dion went through trying to get pregnant again, a little morning sickness is nothing. In fact, it’s great.
“The first two months I really felt the classical symptoms. The morning sickness, hot flashes, nausea,” the singer, 42, tells the French magazine Paris Match in a new interview. “In a certain way, that reassured me, like a sign that my pregnancy was progressing. Now, everything is falling into place. I have a little belly. I’ve gained [10 lbs.].”
Dion confirms she’s expecting twins in November, and says this sixth attempt at in-vitro fertilization was going to be her last if it hadn’t worked. “We believed in trying one more time,” she says. “If [the doctor] had told me that my body was too tired, I would have given up.”
