Celine Dion Admits She Sleeps Next To Twin Boys Following The Death Of Husband Rene

It has been over a year since the death of Celine Dion‘s husband Rene Angelil.

But the Canadian superstar admits life is still so difficult without him.

Talking exclusively to The Sun’s Bizarre, the ‘Power of Love’ singer explains she now sleeps in the same bed as her twin boys as she likes to keep them close.

I miss him a lot for my partner, for the man I was embracing, kissing, making love with. I got myself a huge bed and I sleep with my twins. My twins are comforting me a lot. I need them. I need them close.

Rene sadly lost his battle with throat cancer on January 14, 2016.

While Dion has kept a low profile since her husband’s passing, she is now opening up about how she is coping.

She admits she is not ready to find love again saying,

Now it is definitely too soon for me. I am definitely in love with him, married to him. He’s the love of my life. It’s very difficult for me to see myself with another person. When I sing, it’s with him. When I hug my kids, it’s for him.

The 49-year old ensures she keeps the memory of her hubby alive and he is still a big part of the twins’ life.

Nelson and Eddy, aged 6, have lost their dad at a very young age, but Dion makes them remember him each day.

We kiss him every night actually. We have a little ritual where we say goodnight to him with a little picture and all that. And then the kids talk to him. They write words and they put them in balloons and we send the balloons into the sky…They’re really well. They’re well because I’m strong. If I don’t show them the way and the strength, how to stand up, they will question.

Rene had been in Celine’s life since she was just 12-year old.

He started off as her manager but they began dating when she was just 18 and he was 46.

Talking about just how special he was to her, Celine expressed,

I think I will probably grieve for the rest of my life. Rene has prepared me for all my life since I’m 12.

I have never met another man in my life, never kissed another man in my life.
