Boy oh boy. Or girl.

Titanic-voiced songbird Céline Dion is expecting her second child with male cougar hubby René Angélil, according to the Journal de Montreal.

Per the French-language paper, the 41-year-old Canadian chanteuse and her 67-year-old manager-husband conceived after undergoing a round of fertility treatments in New York. The Journal reported that Dion is due in May, meaning she may be pregnant, but only just.

Is it us or do things move faster on the metric system?

"Celine and René are very happy," her rep told various outlets. "They are crazy in love over the news...they are overjoyed."

The duo has made no secret of similar efforts taken in conceiving their first child, son René-Charles, who was born in 2001. He was born through in vitro fertilization after six years of trying.

While the details of this pregnancy haven't been released, Dion told Oprah Winfrey back in 2004 that it was only a matter of time before she and Angélil tried again—and she had just the egg with which to make the attempt.

"We have a little embryo in New York which was produced at the same time as René-Charles," she said. "To be honest with you, there's no way for me as a mom, knowing that this embryo is part of René and me and is waiting for us in this iceberg…I need to bring this baby to the sun…I have to give it a try."

A new, sunshiney day has come.
