Celine and René Angelil tried for six years to conceive before the singer took a break from singing in early 2000 to focus on starting a family. She later became pregnant with her first son through IVF, giving birth to René-Charles in 2001.

At the time, she told ABC News: "I think we are very blessed to have the opportunity and a blessing to be a mother. I think when you are - when you have a child, it's like there's another heart that grows inside of you. You have this like second heart."

There’s nothing that can top being a mother," she told Daily Mail.

I feel stronger. I stand up for my kids and I feel like I'm the leader of the family."
