Céline Dion’s Twins Just Turned 7—And She Shared Photos From Their Michael Jackson-Themed Birthday Party
It's not very often this celebrity mama posts photos of her kids.
As all parents know, time flies when your children are growing up.
They’re babies one minute, teenagers the next!
Just ask superstar Celine Dion, whose twin boys just turned 7 (!!!) years old.
Dion doesn’t share many photos of her children, but the Grammy-award winning singer took to social media to share a thoughtful birthday message for her twins, Eddy and Nelson Angélil.
And even though they may only be 7, it looks like they take after their famous mom and have some pretty good taste in music!
The photos Dion posted show the pair at their Michael Jackson-themed birthday bash.
Just check out their black dance shoes, sequined socks and Dion’s perfect fedora!
And if you look closely, you’ll even see multiple MJ figurines on the table, as well as a pretty awesome-looking guitar.
But first, here’s a snap of the boys on their first birthday. Adorable, aren’t they?
And here’s a photo from their seventh birthday party.
Though Jackson died a year before the twins were born, the three of them are seriously rocking his style.
Another photo shared on Dion’s Facebook page shows all three striking a pose, with the twins showing off some pretty sweet dance moves!
Dion captioned both photos (in French and English), “Can’t believe you are already 7 years old… Time flies! Happy birthday, my loves! I’m so proud of all of my boys! Mom xx…”
Happy Birthday, Eddy and Nelson! We hope you had a “thriller” of a day!
The boys’ father, who is also father to Dion’s 16-year-old son Rene-Charles Angélil, passed away two years ago, when the twins were just 5 years old.
He died from throat cancer at the age of 74.
Since then, Dion says she sleeps with the twins every night to cope with the loss of her husband.
“I organize myself to not feel lonely,” she told TODAY. “So I got myself a huge, huge, huge bed and I sleep with my twins. They are comforting me a lot. I need them … I need them close.”
Dion found worldwide fame in the 1990s when she was in her early 20s.
Since then, she has gone on to win seven Billboard Music Awards, five Grammys and dozens of other awards.
“On Sunday we lost too many beautiful, innocent souls, and so many are still suffering. But tonight we’re going to let these families know that we are supporting them and that we will help them through their tragic loss. We dedicate tonight’s show to all of the victims and their families, and to the first responders, and to the doctors and nurses who are working around the clock to save lives, and to so many heroes who did whatever they could to help complete strangers in a time of desperate need,” she said before her Oct. 3 concert.
