This is not the type of baby news we like to deliver: Céline Dion is no longer pregnant.
Last August, the golden-piped songbird and husband René Angélil confirmed that she had only just become pregnant with her second child after undergoing a round of in vitro fertilization treatments.
Unfortunately, that is no longer the case: Angélil confirmed to the Journal de Montreal that the 41-year-old Canadian chanteuse is no longer in the family way, as the embryo transfers—which took place in August and October—were ultimately unsuccessful.
Angélil said that both they and their doctor "believed that the procedure/pregnancy took, but that wasn't the case. We found out some days later. We were shocked."
But not deterred.
"We are living the reality of the majority of couples who have to use [IVF]," the 67-year-old hubby-manager said. "The process can be long and arduous.
"But today, we are full of confidence. Céline is more determined than ever."
In fact, the couple, who already has an 8-year-old son, René-Charles, is heading back to New York this weekend to see if the third time proves the charm.
"I admire all the women who go through such a tough process. Since April, she has undergone numerous examinations, multiple hormone injections and blood tests.
"Céline and I didn't get discouraged…we put our faith in life and in the stars."
Hopefully, it's only a matter of time before Céline makes it into our Baby Bumpin' gallery.
