Céline Dion and her hubby René Angélil are overjoyed about the birth of their twin boys, Eddy and Nelson, but before they were born, there was also some heartbreak.

“For about a week, we thought we had triplets, but sadly on the next visit to the doctor’s, we only heard two heartbeats,” Dion, 42, tells Hello! magazine in its current issue.

“That little baby decided to leave the space for the two others and to say goodbye to us,” she says. “It happened very early during the pregnancy, but still, it shocks you.”
