In 1999, Celine hung up her microphone and took a break from show business to start a family. Two years later, she and her husband, René Angelil, celebrated the birth of their first child, a little boy they named René-Charles.
When it came time for Celine to make her highly anticipated Vegas debut, she says she almost backed out. "When I had my son, I didn't want to perform in Las Vegas anymore," she says. "I had a life for the first time. I knew then that I wanted to have more success as a mother than a singer. It was probably one of the hardest moments of my life."
Despite some hesitation, Celine knew the show must go on. She rolled the dice and it paid off...huge! Five years and hundreds of sold-out shows later, Celine took her final bow on December 15, 2007. "I cannot believe that five years have passed by," she says. "It's amazing."
