CELINE DION 3 1/2 MONTHS PREGNANT WITH TWINS

After the disappointment of several unsuccessful pregnancies, Celine Dion’s prayers were answered twofold. She’s expecting twins.

The French Canadian superstar is 3 1/2 months pregnant, according to her assistant Anna DeMartino of Las Vegas.

Dion, 42, is due in late October or early November and plans to stick to her March 15 return to Caesars Palace for a three-year residency , DeMartino told Vegas Confidential.

She and her husband Rene Angelil have a son, Rene Charles, who turns 10 on Jan. 25.

Earlier this year, Dion said she was undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) for the fifth time in hopes of becoming pregnant. She conceived her son, as well, through the assistance of the couple’s doctor, Zev Rosenwaks, the director of the Ronald O. Perelman and Claudia Cohen Center for Reproductive Medicine at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Center Medical.

The IVF procedure involves having embryos frozen and implanted in the uterus for fertilization.

Dion underwent acupuncture six weeks before the IVF procedure began and will continue to use acupuncture during her pregnancy, DeMartino said.

Last week in an interview with syndicated TV host Wendy Williams, Dion said, “Well we’re crossing our fingers. We are expecting good news," adding, “I do not want to talk about it much because I’m superstitious, but I know people have been wonderful to us and are praying for us. At this point we are crossing our fingers, hope for the best and I can not wait to give people good news. ”

Dion announced last August that she was expecting but the attempt didn’t take.

According to footage from her documentary, "Celine: Through The Eyes Of The World," she said the news left her and her husband in tears.

“Rene answered the phone and when I saw the tears running down his face, I knew it wasn’t the news we have been longing for.

"The disappointment hits you like a wave. But I swear, I’ll keep trying until it works.”

The process has been difficult, she said.

“I give the shots (of fertility drugs) to myself. My thighs are bruised and numb and full of lumps from the long needles that go deep into the muscle. I don’t want people saying, ‘Oh, poor Celine,’ but it does take a lot out of me.

“Sometimes I just suddenly burst into tears for no reason. Rene and I want this so much and we go crazy waiting for the results. As a girl who grew up with 13 siblings, I found it hard.”
