For Céline Dion, the future is bright — no matter what size her family turns out to be. In a new interview with Access Hollywood, the 41-year-old songstress says that she and husband René Angélil “hope for the best” in their next round of in-vitro fertilization, while remaining thankful for all they already have.
“I feel strong and honestly, we’re very blessed,” Céline points out. “We have a wonderful child, we’re extremely happy.”
“It’s not like, ‘Oh my god, she’s not pregnant and she’s depressed.’ You know how it works. We are great…we hope to get pregnant. If it happens, it happens.”
When news broke in August that Céline was expecting a little sibling for son René-Charles, 8 ½, she says that the pregnancy had barely even begun. “It was positive…for about four or five days,” she explains, but a blood test soon revealed that her hCG levels were on the decline.
Noting that she is far from alone in her struggle to conceive, Céline points out that “people…go through this all the time and most of the time would not even know that they were pregnant for three or four days, because it was just delayed a little bit.”
“But maybe they were [pregnant] and they would never find out. Because of the treatments I have, I have blood tests a lot and so we found out I was [pregnant] and then it didn’t stay and that is why we are trying again.”
The couple are “all set” to take the plunge again. “We are going back to the same people, the same doctor in New York and it’s a big process,” she says. “I’m sure people that go through in-vitro know how much it takes and demands, but I’m good.”

Also holding up well is René-Charles, who was understandably disappointed by Céline’s loss. “When we announced to him that we were pregnant and then it didn’t work out, he said, ‘Wasn’t it supposed to be 100 percent sure?,’” the singer recalled.
“I said it was 100 percent, but it’s nature and it didn’t work out. He was looking at me and he said, ‘Are you going to try again?’ I said, ‘Yeah, we are going to try again.’ He knows exactly what we are doing, so he’s great.”
Not to mention newly-shorn! Céline went on to reveal the motivation behind René-Charles’ recent haircut.
“I said that there’s a rule in school that you have to cut your hair short. If you want to go to that school, you have to cut the hair. If you don’t want to cut the hair, we are going to have to change schools.”
Choosing school over hair, René-Charles soon sported a shorter style — but Céline kept a memento for herself. “I have this little ponytail thing that’s all baby hair, it’s all blond at the end,” she reveals. “It’s a part of him. It’s great. Of course I keep this in a very special place.”
