Who are Celine Dion's children? Singer's sons ‘have been her rock’ amid battle with Stiff Person Syndrome
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: The three sons of Celine Dion, René-Charles Angélil, 21, and 12-year-old twins Eddy Angélil and Nelson Angélil, “have been her rock” amid her battle with stiff-person syndrome. Celine announced her diagnosis on Thursday, December 8, while postponing her upcoming European tour and said, "I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time and it's been really difficult for me to face my challenges and to talk about everything that I’ve been going through."
Talking to Us Weekly, an insider said, "Her kids have been her rock … the twins are very mature for their age and René-Charles checks in and dotes on his mom all the time." Referring to Celine as an "eternal optimist," the insider added, "Celine received this diagnosis fairly recently; she’s been suffering the symptoms for quite some time, but it always baffled her what was wrong. It came as a shock, but she’s lost none of her fighting spirits and is comforted that at least she knows exactly what she’s dealing with now and there’s a comfort that she can alleviate some of the symptoms by getting treatments that are specific for this condition.”

Celine Dion and her husband
The five-time Grammy Award winner shares three sons with her late husband René Angélil, whom she met when she was 13 and he was 38. He started working as her manager and they started dating in 1987, as previously reported by MEAWW. After dating each other for four years, the duo got engaged in 1991 and married in December 1994. He died of throat cancer in January 2016. He was 73.
Following Rene's death, Celine told, as quoted by Hello Magazine, "The thing where I have a regret and I should not, is he did not die in my arms. But I think he died in my heart. If I hold onto this I won't move on. There's a reason for things, I have to give myself a reason to go on."
