Singer Celine Dion recently took to Instagram, where she noted that her late husband Rene would be proud of their twin boys Nelson and Eddy, who turned ten on October 23.


Celine Dion’s twin boys Nelson and Eddy recently turned ten, and the legendary singer shared a heartwarming message to celebrate the milestone. Celine shared a post featuring a series of pictures of the twins.

The first slide was a throwback photo of the two boys donning matching winter outfits. The next slides featured individual now and then collages of each boy rocking winter outfits while laying and playing in autumn leaves.

Celine accompanied the images with a touching birthday note written in French and translated into English. In the caption, Celine wrote that Nelson and Eddy had brought love, joy, and laughter into her life every day since they were born. The proud mom then noted that she and her late husband, Rene, are proud of the twins. She wrote:

“ You make me, your big brother and your Dad, who is for sure watching over you, so very proud.”


She concluded by expressing love for Nelson and Eddy while wishing them a happy birthday. The sweet post garnered several attention from fans and followers who quickly took to the comments section to leave their best wishes.

Dion’s heartfelt post comes only a few days after she shared a rare photo of herself with the boy in honor of Spirit Day, a campaign that started in 2010 to take a stand against LGBTQ bullying.

The image featured Dion sitting, flanked by each boy while they leaned towards her. One of the boys wore a hat that read “Spirit,” while the other donned a hat that read “Day.” She followed up the picture with a caption where she urged fans to join them in taking a stand against LGBTQ bullying. She wrote:

“I encourage all of you to join us and take a stand against anti-LGBTQ bullying.”


Dion’s recent birthday post is not the first time she is publicly serenading the boys with sweet words on their birthday. On their ninth birthday, the singer took to Instagram to share photos of the boys.

As usual, she accompanied the images with a loving tribute, where she explained that Nelson and Eddy bring double laughter and love into her life. 


Dion shares Nelson and Eddy with her late husband, Rene Angelil, who passed away from cancer in January 2016. He was aged 73. In addition to the twins, the couple also share 19-year-old Rene Charles.

In the wake of her husband’s death, Dion explained that she missed him but admitted that she drew strength and comfort from her beautiful sons. Indeed, they have brought nothing but love to the singer’s life.
