Celine Dion stronger since husband’s death

LOS ANGELES, Feb 23:  Singer Celine Dion feels stronger since the death of her husband Rene Angelil as she believes he will always be with her.

The talent manager passed away in January 2016 aged 73 after having suffered from throat cancer since 2013, and the 48-year-old singer has said she feels her late husband will always be with her, and now feels like the leader of the family, reported Entertainment Tonight.

The “Power of Love” hitmaker, who shared sons Rene-Charles, 16, and six year old twins Nelson and Eddy with Rene said: “When he left, he came inside of all of my kids’ hearts and mine, he gave the rest of his 50 percent for me to be complete, to continue the rest of my life, to feel strong and to believe that I can still do this and he will always be with me.

“I feel stronger. He gave me the rest of him. I feel stronger, I step forward. I say what I mean, I mean what I say. I stand up for my kids and I feel like I’m the leader of the family.”

And the ‘My Heart Will Go On’ singer said her children didn’t suffer with the news of their father’s passing, as she told them the truth about his condition.

“I was so confident in the way that I presented them the passing of their dad. I told them that he was going to be with us in a different way and I didn’t have the rebound of that.” (PTI)
