Céline Dion delivered a very special performance on The Oprah Winfrey Show Monday, giving an intimate look at her home life with her four-month-old twin sons Eddy and Nelson. The beloved artist also gave a a heart-warming performance, singing Billy Joel’s ”(Goodnight My Angel) Lullaby” as photos of her family were displayed on screens behind her.
Céline, who appeared on Oprah’s show for the 27th time, said she struggled picking the perfect names for her little ones, until she decided to name them after two of her idols.
“At the hospital they didn’t have names — it was baby A and baby B,” Céline explained. “The first name that popped into my head was Nelson, because we had the privilege of meeting with Mr. Nelson Mandela.”
“Baby B needed to be another hero. We thought of somebody who had an amazing impact on both of our lives. His name is Eddy Marnay. Eddy wrote my first five French albums.”
The French-Canadian Singer, 42, gave birth too the twins last fall after her sixth attempt at IVF with Rene Angeli, 69.
The couple also have a 10-year-old son Rene Charles.
Céline let the Oprah crew into her home in Jupiter Island, Fla., wearing pjs and no makeup for the interview.
“There’s not a lot of me time. I don’t want to take too much time for me,” the proud mom shared. “Soon I’ll miss this. It goes so fast.”
Her next gig? Céline is headed to Las Vegas for a brand new one-woman show, entitled Celine, which will feature a 31-piece orchestra and all-new performances at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace.
