Celine Dion now says that she is feeling “so powerful and in charge and grounded and happy,” just three years after she lost her husband, whom she was married to for twenty years! She now has advice for those who are also overcoming loss, as losing a loved one like your spouse can be extremely difficult to deal with.
René Angélil, Dion’s husband and manager, died in 2016 following a heart attack. Despite this tremendous loss, the singer says that he gave her “strength and power and positivity” before he passed away. She still carries that with her to this day!
Dion says she’s channeling this new-found energy and positivity into being the best mom (and dad) that she can to her children as she now has to play what she calls the “double shift.”
“The kids are growing, and I see them. And I look at them and I’m like, ‘Wow … we’ve done a great job,'” Dion says in an interview with ABC News, “And I’m so proud.”
