Celine Dion: How I Got My Body Back After Twins
Five months after giving birth to twins Nelson and Eddy with hubby René Angelil, Celine Dion has reclaimed her svelte physique.
Her secret? Breastfeeding. "You get busy with twins and you feed them so they help you to recover very fast," Dion, 42, told Canada's Etalk. "So I helped them help me." (Dion endured six rounds of IVF treatments before getting pregnant with the twins, born via C-section on Oct. 23. )
Yet, admits the singer, a speedy slim down wasn't her goal. "It's not important. I'm not a model," said Dion, who has resumed her Las Vegas shows. "I'm not there to wear a size 2 or 0 or 4. I'm going to find the dress that's going to fit the body at the time. But it happened to be that the weight loss [happened] very rapidly. And genetically, I'm very lucky too." For more reasons than just a fab post baby bod.
"There's a lot to do and lots of fun," Dion says of home life with Angelil, 69, the twins and eldest son Rene Charles, 10. "RC's in a baseball league and there was a ceremony and he said , 'Papa, do you think it's possible for Eminem to come and sing the national anthem. And Rene looked at him and says, 'Oh my god. You can tell this kid has traveled around the world....No, we can't get Eminem to sing the national anthem."
