Celine has been a single mother since 2016 when her longtime husband lost his lengthy battle with throat cancer. 

She paid a heartfelt tribute to him on the fifth anniversary of his death when she wrote: "René, it’s been 5 years already… There’s not one day that we don’t think about you. We’re reaching out to you now more than ever, to guide us, protect us, and continue to watch over us.

"And we pray that you'll shine your love on the entire world, to all those at this very moment, who are facing incredibly difficult times.

"You are in our hearts and in our lives forever. We love you, Celine, René-Charles, Nelson and Eddy xx."
