Celine Dion is refusing to hire a nanny to help take care of her newborn twins as she’s determined to raise the boys herself.
The singer gave birth to little Nelson and Eddy at a hospital in Florida in October (10). Dion is already mother to nine-year-old son Rene-Charles with her husband Rene Angelil and the twins were conceived after a long battle with fertility treatments. And although Dion admits she’s exhausted from looking after the babies, she is adamant she won’t be hiring any help. She tells French magazine Gala,
“I didn’t have these children to not take care of them, to give myself to them 200 – 300 per cent. I am changing diapers and breastfeeding and that’s something where no one can take my place. It’s tiring but an intense joy.
“I take things day by day. That’s the secret to me. In any case, breastfeeding is more difficult if you are stressed. Sometimes I find myself in comical situations I don’t know how to get myself out of. For example, when both are feeding and one has gas while the other is burping, I don’t know which position to adopt!”
But Dion concedes she is grateful to have her mother Therese and sister Linda on hand to help her with the “housework, cooking or doing the shopping”.
