The only man she’s loved
“I wanted him to live in peace”
Her love story to husband René Angélil has become almost as famous as her powerful ballads.
And now, global superstar Céline Dion has revealed the extent of the pain her husband was in before his untimely death and the devastating grief she felt at losing the only man she’s ever ‘loved.’
“For three years my husband did not have a sip of water or food. He was eating through a tube.”
“The only thing I hoped while he was in three years of agony. I wanted him to live in peace. I wanted him to feel so light and no worries.”
“He had a little heart attack, it’s so quick, he didn’t even feel anything. I thought that he was like liberated from his pain.”
Céline also opened up about the affection they had for one another.
“He thought me everything. He’s the only man I’ve seen. The only man I’ve loved. The only man I’ve kissed.” “I fell in love with him immediately.”
She really loves him
“Not in the romance way, I was 12 years old. I was in love with the way he treated everyone around me, including my whole family and myself.”
Céline said her mother had struggled to deal with her falling for René. (They got married in 1994, when Céline was 26-years-old)
“Because it was not the person that she wanted for me … And I don’t blame her… I said mum, I really love him. It hurts inside.”
Now, a few years after René passed away (in 2016), Céline said she is doing much better (She has three children).
Her Lucky Number ☆
《 2011 》
Celine Dion offered words of support and condolences to those in earthquake-ravaged Japan. “Her heart goes out to all the people over there, and she’s wishing everything returns to normal as soon as possible,” said her husband/manager, Rene Angelil.
(Dion drew sellout crowds on 2008 tour stops in Tokyo and Osaka)
《 1982 》
She has performed in Japan numerous times since winning the Yamaha World Festival singing competition in Tokyo in 1982, besting 100 others.
Only 14, and representing France, she won with “Tellement J’ai D’amour Pour Toi,” a song for her mother that means, “I have so much love for you.”
《 Lucky Number 》
It was written by Eddie Marney, who wrote songs for her first five albums. She honored him by naming one of her twins Eddie. Since that trip to Japan, Dion has embraced the number 5 as her lucky number.
During the semifinals of the competition, she found a Japanese coin, that was worth five yen. When it was announced who would sing in what order, she was told she would be No. 5. She took it as a good omen and, after she won, it has been her lucky number ever since.
(Her first son, Rene-Charles, was born on Jan. 25, 2001, and baptized on July 25 of that year. Her twins, Nelson and Eddie, were baptized on March 5.)
