Celine Dion’s Husband To Spend Final Moments In Loving Arms Of ‘My Heart Will Go On’ Singer

Celine Dion's husband is set to spend his final Christmas with his "My Heart Will Go On" singer wife. Reports said Rene Angelil is spending his final moments in the loving arms of his wife and their sons.

Despite her busy schedule, Dion has decided to take some time off her Las Vegas shows and instead spend a lot of time together with her dying husband, CelebDirtyLaundry wrote Wednesday.

A family friend of the Angelils revealed that Celine plans to celebrate festive moments with her family while forgetting the fact that Rene is already nearing his demise amid his cancer battle.

"Celine is trying to make the most of whatever time they have left with Rene," the tipster said before adding, "Celine is hopeful by nature. She puts her trust in her faith."

For the past two years now, Angelil is being fed via a tube because of his serious throat cancer. The doctors even disclosed to the couple in August that they were not certain how long it would take for Rene to continue living, as per Huffington Post Canada.

During this very difficult time, Celine wants to remain positive not only for Rene but also for her family. An insider even revealed, "She won't allow the house to descend into gloom and doom. She does her best to fill her boys' lives with fun and excitement."

The same insider said, "But I also think every day has become more meaningful to them given what the family is going through."

In 2014, Angelil already stepped down from his role as the manager of his wife after an operation involving the removal of a throat tumor months prior.

In an interview with USA Today, Dion bravely opened up about her husband's condition. She said, "I think I've got this. For now. When it hits me, it's going to hit me. But my biggest job is to tell my husband, we're fine. I'll take care of our kids. You'll watch us from another spot."

Dion is set to return to her Las Vegas show at Caesars Palace on Dec. 30. For now, she just wants to celebrate a meaningful Christmas with her husband and their boys: Nelson, Eddy, and Rene-Charles. 

Meanwhile, in the wake of the brutal Paris attacks, the Canadian diva performed during the 2015 AMAs for the victims of the onslaught, which killed 129 and left 368 injured.

According to Wetpaint, Dion performed a cover of Edith Piaf's "Hymne à l'Amour" in front of the large crowd that gathered in Los Angeles's Microsoft Theatre.

Her tribute performance was so emotional and beautiful that it left many people crying.
