Dion and her husband Rene Angelil are already parents to 9-year-old son Rene-Charles.

Dion underwent six in-vitro fertilization treatments, staying in New York City for a month and also getting acupuncture, before getting pregnant with twins. Rene-Charles was also conceived by in vitro after six years of trying.

Last year, Dion revealed to Oprah Winfrey that she had suffered a miscarriage after another IVF attempt.

"We're living the reality of the majority of couples who face these procreation techniques," Angelil told a French-Canadian newspaper in November.
