Celine Dion Names Her Twin Sons!
Introducing...Nelson and Eddy Angelil!
The names of Celine Dion's newborn twin boys are no longer a secret.
The French-Canadian singer announced what she and husband Rene Angelil will call their sons in a Canadian TV interview taped Oct. 13, 10 days before she gave birth.
As reported at CTV, the couple explained their name picks: "Nelson" is a tribute to South African anti-apartheid hero Nelson Mandela; "Eddy" is named after French songwriter Eddy Marnay.
Marnay, who died in 2003, helped launch Dion's music career after he heard her sing at just 13 years old and agreed to produce a song for her.
Dion, 42, and Angelil, 68, are already parents to son Rene-Charles, 9. Nelson and Eddy were conceived after five failed IVF attempts.
"When Saturday at 11:11 came, and they showed us the first baby that was crying, we were crying," Angelil confessed to Canadian TV show etalk earlier this week. "It was a very emotional moment, and even though we didn't speak to each other, we were both thinking about the time it took. We are very lucky, very privileged and very fortunate to have these boys."
