Celine Dion Preparing For Last Christmas With René Angélil: Report

Posted: Updated:

Celine Dion's husband René Angélil is still battling throat cancer, and one report says this could be their last Christmas together.

A source told Closer Weekly that the Canadian singer is trying to make the most of whatever time she has left with him.

73-year-old Angélil has been on a feeding tube for the past two years, Dion told USA Today in August, and that doctors don't know how much longer he'll live.

While his prognosis is unclear, Dion told "Good Morning America" last week that Angélil was "doing great" and is "stable."

Angélil, who was the singer's manager, stepped down from that role in 2014, according to Hello! Canada, after a tumour was removed from his throat several months earlier.

The 47 year old cancelled her Las Vegas shows that same year to care for him, but returned to the stage this past August after she told USA Today that Angélil wanted her to perform.

She performed an emotional tribute to him back in September, singing "The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face" while home movies of Angélil and her children played in the background, according to Hello.

Dion, who calls her husband of 21 years "the only boyfriend I've ever had", told USA Today that when the end comes, he wants to die in her arms.
