Celine Dion has revealed that she is keeping her children even closer in a bid to combat loneliness since the death of husband Rene Angelil.
Speaking to The Sun in her first UK interview since Rene died of throat cancer last January, the 49-year-old singer explained that she now shares a ‘huge’ bed with six-year-olds Nelson and Eddy.
‘I organise myself to not feel lonely,’ she explained.
‘So I got myself a huge, huge, huge bed and I sleep with my twins. They are comforting me a lot. I need them close.’
She added: ‘When it’s time for them to say they want their room, their room’s ready. But we watch a lot of TV together. I’m discovering Disney.’
Meanwhile she is encouraging them to remember their dad by communicating with him and saying goodnight to him every night, telling them: ‘Papa is in your heart’.
Celine went on to admit just how difficult nursing Rene, 73, had been for her as his illness took hold.
‘He did suffer for three years. A lot,’ she recalled.
