DOUBLE LAUGHTER AND LOVE
Dion shared two rare photos of her sons; the first showed the boys posing shoulder to shoulder while smiling, and in the second, they made goofy faces. In the caption, written in both French and English, the award-winning singer wrote,
"Double the laughter, and double the love. Happy 9th birthday, Nelson and Eddy."
"I'm so very proud of my boys. I love you, mom, xx."

The singer's followers joined her in celebrating her sons, with one person writing,
"Happy birthday, guys."
"That's incredible; one looks just like you, and the other René."
THE TWINS COMFORTED DION WHEN SHE LOST RENÉ
Dion shared the twins with her late husband and manager, René Angelil. The two equally have an 18-year-old son, René-Charles.
The dad-of-three passed away in 2016 from cancer, and in an interview a year later, the mom-of-three said the presence of her younger sons, comforted her. She said,
"I [organized] myself not to feel lonely, so I got myself a huge, huge, huge bed, and I [slept] with my twins. They [comforted] me a lot."
Since then, the "My Heart Will Go On" singer has focused more on her children, and career, and have not dated since. Dion revealed recently to TODAY that she is not ready to date, or entertain romance in her life yet. She said,
"I don't date; I'm not ready to date. I'm very lucky and happy to have so many people in my surroundings to make me laugh."
DION ALREADY LIVED HER LOVE STORY
"I have to say that I still feel today I have been, still is, the luckiest woman in the world as far as I'm concerned because I have dated the best man, the father of my children."
The singer continued,
"Everyday I still see him because my three children, they look so much like him, and do so many things just like him. This is just amazing, and he was an exceptional man."
Dion and her sons keep René's memory alive, and the singer who is on her "Courage World Tour," and is set to release her first English album, "Courage," since her husband died, is living her best life with her boys.
