I read this in the newspaper today. “Dion underwent her sixth in-vitro fertilization attempt, staying in New York City for a month and also undergoing acupuncture treatments -- "and it worked!" the rep says.
The "My Heart Will Go On" chanteuse and manager husband Rene Angelil, 68, "are both extremely excited. But really, since this was the sixth time, they just want a healthy pregnancy," the rep adds.
Dion is currently 14 weeks along, and will find out the gender of their child next month. The baby-to-be will join big brother Rene-Charles, who turned 9 in January. 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," her husband Angelil told a French-Canadian newspaper in November”.
