Céline Dion took to Instagram to share a heartfelt tribute for her late husband René Angélil on the 5th anniversary of his death. He passed away on January 14, 2016.

She shared a photo of her hand entwined with Angélil's hand, with the ocean in the background. The tribute was written in both French and English.

She opened up and wrote that there was not one day that passed where the family did not think of their late husband and father and that the family was reaching out to him more than ever. She continued in the caption:

"We’re reaching out to you now more than ever, to guide us, protect us, and continue to watch over us."


Dion continued in the caption that she hoped his love would shine on the entire world and to all those who are experiencing difficult times at the moment.

It is clear that Dion still loves her husband deeply as she has continued to speak fondly about him after his death 5 years ago. While appearing on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen," she was asked about her dating life.

There is no doubt that the mom of three and accomplished singer loves her family deeply.


A fan had asked her if she would consider getting remarried and if she was dating anyone. She had responded and said that she was not looking for love, but she was open to the experience of meeting someone.

She continued and said that either if she found someone or did not, both would be fine. Dion admitted that she was still in love with her late husband. She said:

"It doesn't mean that I will not find someone in my life. If I do, that would be great. If I don't, that would be great, because I'm still in love."


However, Dion shared that her family and fans love her and that she sees her husband through her children's eyes. That love keeps her going, although there is no romantic love.

There is no doubt that the mom of three and the accomplished singer loves her family deeply. She regularly shares heartfelt tributes to her husband and children.

Such as the post above for her eldest son, René-Charles. She posted the snapshot for his 18th birthday and shared how proud she is of her "big man."

The couple was married in December 1994. Angélil had been her manager. They had three children together and staying together until he died after a years-long battle with cancer.
