Celine Dion Honors Late Husband in Touching Birthday Tribute for Son René-Charles

Celine Dion is one proud mom. The singer took to Instagram to share a touching tribute for her oldest son René-Charles Angélil in honor of his 19th birthday. In the post, which features a throwback photo as well as a more recent picture of the teen posing with the songstress, the mother-of-three praised her son for being a “true gentlemen” and acknowledged his late father, René Angélil.

“My dear René-Charles,” she wrote. “I’m so proud of the way you’re conducting yourself in life. You’re a true gentleman, and I want you to know that your father’s guidance continues to support and protect you… as I do. Keep being the best of yourself… strong, passionate, and wise, as you pursue all of your dreams in life – the sky’s the limit!  And above all, have a good time!…. Your happiness, is my happiness. I love you so much, my dear son!  Mom xx…”

Just one week prior to the singer’s birthday tribute, she shared a post in honor of her late husband on the three-year anniversary of his death. “There is not a day that goes by without me thinking about your beautiful smile. We miss you, thank you for watching over us my love. I love you,” she wrote.

Dion’s late husband sadly lost his battle with cancer at the age of 74 in 2016, 22 years after the couple – who also welcomed twins Eddy and Nelson in 2010 — tied the knot.
