In an interview with Access Hollywood, singer Celine Dion talks about her struggle to become pregnant, her husband’s cancer scare, and her wish for more children.  In 1999 as she underwent in vitro fertilization treatments, her husband Rene Angelil was diagnosed with skin cancer.  Two years later, their first child Renee Charles was born. Of that time in her life, Celine said: "Both of us wanted to have this gift of life… We were trying for six years and we couldn’t. It didn’t work. And then he got sick. We really thought that was going to be our final answer. And then they said it’s not over until it’s over. So we talked with professional people and more than one dream came true." 

Now she and Rene want to have another child — or even more.  She has been very open that she has a frozen embryo in New York, and that she hopes in vitro fertilization can help her become pregnant again.
