It’s been over a year since Céline Dion’s husband René Angélil died after losing his battle to throat cancer, but has she been able to move on?
Dion shared with UK magazine The Sun, "I think I will probably grieve for the rest of my life.”
When asked if she’s ready to date, she said, "Now it is definitely too soon for me… I am definitely in love with him, married to him.”
"He's the love of my life. It’s very difficult for me to see myself with another person,” Dion emphasized. "The love that I have for him, I live it every day. And as a woman, we do have emotions and feelings that come and go. And it's always with him.”
René and Céline share three children together — René-Charles, Eddy, and Nelson. “I organize myself to not feel lonely. So I got myself a huge, huge, huge bed and I sleep with my twins. They are comforting me a lot. I need them. I need them close.”
“We kiss him every night,” Dion continued. “We have a little ritual where we say good night to him with a little picture. Then the kids talk to him. And they write words, put them in balloons and we send the balloons to the sky.”
Dion also opened up about consulting with her late husband on recording a new song for Disney’s live adaptation of “Beauty and the Beast.” She said, "I went and found one of the paintings that one of the fans gave me of my husband and I said, ‘Should I do this?’ And the answer I got back — I don’t want that to sound, like, ghostly or anything like that — but emotionally, what I got back from that was, ‘You have nothing to lose.'”
