Céline Dion is taking a pregnancy precaution.  

The Grammy-winning singer has been admitted to St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Fla., to prevent the early delivery of her twins, according to a statement released by her rep.

The decision was made on the advice of Dion's physicians so that she'll be in close contact with her doctors, who can properly observe the 42-year-old leading up to the babies' arrival.

Her rep insists Dion's hospital stay should not be cause for alarm, saying that this is merely "the standard of care for any patient with twin pregnancy in this clinical setting."

Dion and her husband, René Angelil, are already the proud parents of 9-year-old René-Charles.

Rest easy, Céline!
