ONE YEAR! Celine Dion and hubby René Angélil’s twins, Nelson and Eddy, are one year old, and Celine’s shared their “photo album” with our friends at Hello! Canada Magazine — aren’t they cute? There are lots more photos in the mag (on stands Thursday!), PLUS an exclusive interview, of which we have snippets.
Just a year ago, Celine was struggling to manage two hungry 5-pound preemies while raising big brother René-Charles (10). “I live in my pajamas,” she told Hello! Canada a year ago. “All I do all day long is get undressed, feed the kids and pull my shirt back up!” Yup. I think many of us have been there.
Today the twins are 20 pounds and recently celebrated their first birthday with a PARTY! Guests at the party included the doctors who helped with the birth, Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck — because, as Celine tells Hello!, “we watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse a lot.”
Here’s what she had to say about Mickey Mouse Clubhouse….
They love Mickey Mouse so much, we wanted to have that theme for them. Mainly, they stayed inside with their toys, having a great time with new books and new little balls and new things to play with. And they thought that day was very special — like every day is for them, you know? But there was something different — they could touch their cake, put their hands in it, cover their faces with chocolate and put chocolate on Mommy and Daddy’s faces.
And who made the cakes? Can you guess, Gorgeouses? But, of course….
I had to make the cakes. That’s one of my things.
I have to say Celine interviews always crack me up — love the quirkiness! Pick up your Hello! Canada issue Thursday to read on for more deets and photos of this wild and crazy party, and lots more!
And, in case you’re wondering, Celine still lives in her pajamas (except when she’s performing in Vegas), and the babies still don’t sleep through the night. But, in case it’s not obvious enough already, she’s loving motherhood: “It makes me very, very proud.”
