NEW YORK - Celine Dion gave birth to twin boys at a Florida hospital on Saturday.
The Grammy-winning singer, 42, welcomed twin boys with husband Rene Angelil just one minute apart from each other, at 11:11 a.m. and 11:12 a.m.
“Celine is resting now and they plan to discuss what to name the boys when she wakes up,” the New York Daily News quoted her rep as telling People.com.
The happy news comes less than a week after the singer checked into St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Fla. for observation.
Doctors said Dion, who was more at-risk for premature labor due to her age, was simply undergoing a standard precautionary measure “for any patient with twin pregnancy in this clinical setting.”
Already mother to son Rene-Charles, 9, the crooner is “thrilled” with the new additions to her family. The twins, who were born premature, will now spend a few days in an incubator.
“Rene-Charles has been to the hospital to visit his brothers and is just so excited they are here,” the rep added. (ANI)
