On Sunday, Céline Dion’s three sons filmed a sweet video message for the singer in honour of Mother’s Day.
“Happy Mother’s Day, mom! We love you very much,” her eldest, 16-year-old René-Charles, said in the video, before repeating the message in French. Behind him, his six-year-old twin brothers, Eddy and Nelson, can be seen smiling at the camera and looking very grown up.
The heartwarming video was shared on Dion’s Instagram page. “Céline gets a surprise message from her 3 boys! Happy Mother’s Day!” the caption read.
In the past, the 49-year-old has always been open about the impact motherhood has had on her. In fact, Dion credits her kids for helping her cope with the loss of her husband, René Angélil, who died from cancer last year.
“What makes me most proud is to be a mother,” she told Extra in February. “I have three magnificent kids, that through them, I see my husband and I have the strength today to keep dressing up.”
