Celine Dion gave birth to her miracle twins, Eddy and Nelson, after enduring six rounds of in vitro fertilization (IVF) and suffering a miscarriage. Before the twins were conceived, the singing sensation opened up to Oprah in 2010 about her fertility struggles, and what was on her mind through several failed attempts.

"We didn't want to feel like we were playing yo-yo. 'I'm pregnant. I'm not pregnant. I'm pregnant. I'm not pregnant,'" Celine told Oprah. "So, we didn't want to do this thing. But we did [have] a miscarriage. We tried four times to have a child. We're still trying. We're on the fifth try. And I tell you, if five is my lucky number, this fifth try has got to come in."

Here, the pop superstar speaks very candidly about an incredibly trying time in her personal life, and reveals what gave her strength in those moments.
