Editor’s note: We were deeply saddened to learn of René Angélil’s passing. The clip above is from Celine's and René's 2002 interview.

In 2000, Celine Dion shocked the world. Prompted by her husband René Angélil's battle with throat cancer, Celine decided to take a break from her busy tour schedule to stop and smell the roses. During that time, Celine and René started a family, bringing René-Charles into the world. René, along with Celine and their boy René-Charles, stopped by The Oprah Show in 2002 to share how fatherhood transformed him. "I'm always with him, and the morning is the greatest thing," René said. "Every dad knows that. When he wakes up and he smiles... all my time is for him." Today, after learning that René passed away of cancer, we look back at René and his baby boy, René-Charles, sharing a moment.
