Singer Celine Dion gave birth to twin boys today!

The singer was admitted in to the hospital earlier this week to help delay her pregnancy, but many believed her twins would be born early. Dion was eight months pregnant which pretty good considering her age coupled with the fact that she was carrying twins.

One infant weighs 5 pounds, 10 ounces, while the other is 5 pounds, 4 ounces, the hospital said” (via CNN).

This is great news for Dion who struggled to get pregnant with another child (she and husband Rene have a son, Rene, 9). Dion went through several rounds of IVF and was very open about her desire and struggle to have more children. She and Rene must be overjoyed!
