New mom Celine Dion has revealed she was initially expecting triplets, but lost one of the babies at the beginning of her pregnancy.
The singer and her husband Rene Angelil welcomed twin boys, Nelson and Eddy, at a hospital in Florida on Saturday after months of in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatments.

In an emotional interview with French-Canadian TV channel Canoe, recorded before the birth, the 42-year-old star tearfully recalls how she was initially pregnant with three babies.

But just five days after doctors told her the happy news, the third baby’s heart stopped beating.

She says, “He chose to let go to give space to his brothers to grow.”
