Celine has many blessings to be thankful for, but in 2009, she also experienced great sadness when she suffered a miscarriage. In the past, Celine has spoken openly about her struggle with infertility and experience with in vitro fertilization.
Despite her loss, Celine isn't giving up hope. "It's life, you know? A lot of people go through this," she says. "We tried four times to have a child. We're still trying. We're on the fifth try, and I'll tell you, if five is my lucky number, this fifth try has got to come in."
Celine says she and René try not to let fertility issues affect their relationship."I don't think a child [or] a pregnancy should make anything stronger or weaker. A child is not there to fix a marriage, to bring happiness," she says. "Let's not put pressure on children."
When faced with a difficult situation, Celine says her friends, family members and fans are a comfort to her. "I think I have an amazing relationship with my family, with my friends, and I have to say, with my fans," she says. "I have an amazing and special bond with people. They care. They mind. They feel for me, and I just want you to know that I appreciate that tremendously. I will be the happiest one to tell you when I'm pregnant, and if not, I'm the luckiest artist, wife and mother of a wonderful son."
