Céline Dion Is Pregnant!

Are Céline Dion and René Angélil Too Old to Have a Baby?

Céline Dion and René Angélil are expecting an addition to their family! The couple who are already parents to René-Charles, 8, and René's three other children from two previous marriages, are said to have used the same fertility doctor that helped them conceive their lil boy. The singer, 41, and her manager/husband, 67, have long been vocal about their intention to give their son a sibling.

Fifty-seven percent of lilsugar readers said that it is selfish for women to get pregnant past a certain age, while 39 percent voted that having an older dad doesn't matter as much as having an older mother. What do you think of Céline and René's situation?

I meant equable! Could we PLEASE have an edit option here? I just wanted to add - People, PLEASE leave the boy's hair alone! Seriously, you think they are bad parents because their son has long hair!? She's said a while ago Rene-Charles likes it so they're not going to force him to cut it off! I think this doesn't prove they've failed in parenting, huh?

You know what, it's their decision. I don't think (most of) people should have children so EARLY like Nadia said! Yes, PHISICALLY it may be the best time, but not mentally... People in early 20s are soyoung and immature these days(I'm not saying ALL of them of course). I think they're not as patient and euable like people nearer to their 40s. I know what I'm saying, my mom had me when she was barely 20! Besides, like some of my predecessoes have said, you never know where you're going to die. You can die at 90, you can die in your 20s... My grandfather died at 36, he had a stroke - he just fell asleep and never woke up... Celine is still young! 40 is not OLD. I wish them good luck and I hope Renee will live really long and he'll have the chance to see his children grow up :)

she's not too old, but he's creepy. i think the best rule is that if you are in menopause or past it, you shouldn't be trying to have children. menopause is nature's way of saying "okay, done with the baby-making now!" & that's it. it's not any human made law, it's built in to our biology & is quite clear on when our bodies can't do it anymore.

Celine didn't announced it officially. It was leaked out. Celine is not too old. Was this qwuestion asked when Halle Berry got pregnant at her early 40's? How abouit Madonna who keeps having kids at 51?

He is too old. It is certain that this child will lose his/her father at a young age. Why do that to your child?

I don't think that's anybody's place to judge but their own. I don't want people telling me when I should or shouldn't have children. It's a very personal choice. They obviously have a lot of love to share. Lots of women her age have healthy children.

She announced her first pregnancy almost immediately as well. I don't think passing judgement on who should be parents is a very good idea. And LOTS of people who think they will simply be able to have a baby when they decide to do so are surprised.

I think he's too old. There's a difference between parents who unexpectantly die young and a parent who WILL BE dead when the kid is around 20ish. However, since it isn't just him having the baby I think it's ok. Celine is fine at 41 imo.

I don't think it's anybody's business how old people are when they have children!! Parents can die in their 20s and leave small children for others to look after; what difference does it make what age you are. Nobody knows how long Rene or Celine will live so they might as well be happy and have another child. People need to make their lives happy for now and not worry so much about what might happen!!

While I don't think Celine is too old (there are plenty of 40+ pregnant moms out there), I do have a concern over Renee's age. They went through a specialist, but I know plenty of "opps" babies who parents were later on in life, and their parents are still around and kicking (all of these friends are 30+ now and their parents are 70+ now). Take for example, Maria del Carmen Bousada, who at 66 delivered twin boys. She claimed that since her mother lived to 101, she would be around for a long time for her children. Unfortunately, she died this year, leaving her children, who are 3, motherless.
