Dion Happy To 'Do Nothing' Until Birth Of Twins

Expectant mother CELINE DION is relaxing and doing "almost nothing" to ensure she has a smooth pregnancy after trying to conceive for more than a year.
The singer, 42, announced she is pregnant with twins on Sunday (30May10) following a successful sixth attempt at in-vitro fertilisation (IVF).
Dion admits her determination to give her nine-year-old son, Rene Charles, a sibling has been an exhausting experience and she needed constant reassurance about the happy news in the first few weeks of her pregnancy.
She tells Le Journal de Montreal, "They were truly great emotions (to learn she was expecting twins) after all our efforts. My doctors had to constantly reassure me. I (wanted) to see the babies. Each week I had sonograms. I heard their heart beats."
"I feel like I've been pregnant (for) more than a year. I never gave up. But I can tell you that it was physically and emotionally exhausting."
And the star has vowed to take life easy as she and her husband Rene Angelil prepare for the babies' births.
She says, "It's stressful but I'm relaxing. I look at my little belly. I do almost nothing. If you tell me I have to stay in bed, I will stay in bed until November, when the babies are born. To bring them into the world, there's nothing more important than that. It's incredible.
"We will have a beautiful family nest full of love."
Dion is expected to head back to Las Vegas next year (11) to begin a new residency, but she insists nothing will ever come before her priorities as a mother.
She adds, "There are no accomplishments bigger than (being a mum). The trophies and the money, that doesn't give meaning to life and that doesn't give you true happiness. A baby - yes."
