The 'My Heart Will Go On' singer, who has given birth to twin boys, has revealed she was initially expecting three sons after conceiving via in vitro fertilization (IVF).
was pregnant with triplets. The singer gave birth to twin boys via Cesarean section last Saturday, October 23 but has revealed she was initially expecting three sons after conceiving via in vitro fertilization (IVF).

In an interview with a French news station, which was recorded before she delivered the tots, Celine said, "He chose to let go to give space to his brothers to grow."

It is not yet known at what stage of the pregnancy she lost the third child. The 42-year-old music star and her 68-year-old husband Rene Angelil, who also have a nine-year-old son Rene-Charles together, underwent six in vitro fertilization (IVF) attempts before Celine got pregnant.

The couple have named the boys Eddy and Nelson, after record producer Eddy Marnay and human rights campaigner and former South African President Nelson Mandela, who Celine met two years ago. Celine's representative told People, "Eddy is a major influence in both Celine and Rene's lives."

"Rene said that in just the few minutes they were able to spend with Nelson Mandela they were impressed by the human being he is. Celine and Rene want their children to be inspired by their names, because they were so inspired by these men."
