Celine Dion has had a run of ill health causing her to step away from the limelight and cease performing recently, but she's not alone in her struggles.

The adored artist has been recovering after revealing she's been dealing with "severe and persistent muscle spasms".

While she rarely shares photos of her children, she's incredibly proud of all three of them. Her youngest are still at school, while Rene has forged a successful music career of his own.

On Mother's Day this year, Celine celebrated her children with a rare group snapshot posted on Instagram.

Celine's three boys mean the world to her 

Alongside her most recent photo with her boys, she wrote: "This Mother’s Day, I feel very fortunate to be able to be with my children, and I think about mothers in Ukraine and around the world who have lost their children.

"For those mothers who constantly worry about how to keep their children safe... and for those mothers who devote every ounce of their energy just to provide their children with the bare necessities of life.

Celine's children are incredibly close to their mom 

Earlier this year, her children helped Celine to create a life-size baby elephant statue, all for a very important cause -  to raise awareness and support for elephant welfare and conservation projects.

It was a difficult journey to motherhood for Celine, who shares her offspring with her late husband, René Angelil.

They tried for six years to conceive before resorting to IVF to have their firstborn. 

The couple went on to try for a second child, and tragically suffered a miscarriage before welcoming twins Eddy and Nelson in 2010, who were named after Nelson Mandela and Eddy Marnay.
