*file photo* * DION HOSPITALISED Pregnant singer CELINE DION has been hospitalised in Florida in an effort to save the star's twins from a premature birth. The 42 year old is expecting twin boys with her husband Rene Angelil after undergoing months of invasive in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatments in a bid to fall pregnant. Dion, who is not due to give birth until next month (Nov10), checked in to a medical centre in West Palm Beach, Florida on Monday (18Oct10) as a preventative measure to make sure she doesn't go into labour early. The singer is said to have made the decision herself so she can be close to her doctors in the lead-up to the birth. A statement from officials at the St. Mary's Medical Center reads, Ms. Celine Dion... has been admitted to prevent the early delivery of her babies which is a fairly common clinical practice for mothers of twins. This is done to ensure the patient can be in close contact with their doctors and clinical resources, leading up to their birth. Celine and Rene have placed the health of their babies as their highest priority... We look forward to the day of Ms. Dion's delivery of her twins. During this time, we ask the public and the media (to) respect the privacy of all of our patients and their families at our hospital. The officials also confirm security at the facility has been stepped up in the wake of Dion's admission, and they dismiss rumours she is enjoying any special treatment. The statement adds, At no time did Ms. Dion or her husband make any special demands or requests of the hospital... She has not requested or selected any particular staff or accommodations not available to other patients... Although the family did not ask us to do so, the hospital has chosen to enhance our security efforts during this time for the convenience and safety of all our patients and their families within this same area of our facility. Dion and Angelil are already parents to a nine-year-old son, Rene Charles. (LR/WNWA/ZN) Celine Dion and Rene Angilil Vanity Fair Oscar Party at Mortons Los Angeles, California - 25.02.07
