Celine Dion celebrated a milestone on Saturday as she baptised her four-month-old twin sons in Las Vegas.
The singer christened little Eddy and Nelson in a Melkite Greek Catholic ceremony, which honored her husband Rene Angelil’s heritage.

The twins’ 10-year-old big brother Rene-Charles, the doctor who helped Dion conceive her little boys through fertility treatments and 200 family members and friends were also in attendance at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church.

Dion’s representative tells People.com, “It was a beautiful, traditional family ceremony.”

After the baptism, the tots napped while their mom hosted a reception at Caesars Palace, the same venue Dion will call home for the next three years as she begins a new residency later this month.
