Celine Dion ready for babies

Celine Dion is taking no chances with her pregnancy -- the singer has already checked into a Florida hospital on the advice of her doctors.

The hospital issued the following statement with the approval of Celine's camp:

"Ms. Celine Dion has been admitted to St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Florida for observation at the recommendation of her doctors. She has been admitted to prevent the early delivery of her babies, which is the standard of care for any patient with twin pregnancy in this clinical setting."

The measure is purely preventative, the hospital says, "done to ensure the patient can be in close contact with their doctors and clinical resources, leading up to their birth."

Dion's husband and manager René Angélil says the couple does not have a scheduled C-section planned. "There is nothing scheduled," he said. "We do not have a date."

Celine and René have a son together, and sadly suffered a miscarriage and other fertility issues before her current pregnancy.
